INTRODUCTION Hemophilia A is an X linked recessive hemorrhagic disorder caused by mutations in the F8 gene that lead to qualitative and/or quantitative deficiencies of coagulation factor VIII (FVIII). Molecular diagnosis of hemophilia A is challenging because of the high number of different causative mutations that are distributed throughout the large F8(More)
UNLABELLED Inherited factor VII (FVII) deficiency is a rare disorder characterized by a bleeding phenotype varying from mild to severe. To date, more than 200 mutations have been described along the F7 gene encoding for FVII. The aim of this study was the identification of genetic defects underlying FVII deficiency in 10 patients belonging to eight(More)
Combined deficiency of coagulation factor V (FV) and factor VIII (FVIII) (F5F8D) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by mild-to-moderate bleeding and reduction in FV and FVIII levels in plasma. F5F8D is caused by mutations in one of two different genes, LMAN1 and MCFD2, which encode proteins that form a complex involved in the transport of(More)
INTRODUCTION Low dose prophylaxis could be recommended in countries with limited resources. AIM We report our single centre experience in children with haemophilia. PATIENTS Fifty-five children were included in our study with a weekly median dose of 30 UI kg-1 given once, twice or thrice a week. Age of initiation of prophylaxis is 5.32 years(More)
BACKGROUND The development of inhibitors against factor 8 (F8) is the most serious complication of replacement therapy with F8 in children with severe hemophilia. It was suggested that mismatched F8 replacement therapy may be a risk factor for the development of anti-factor F8 alloantibodies. Recently four single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) encoding six(More)
