An Illustrated Guide to Meeting the Challenges of Treating Hemophilia

To participate in this activity, please:

This Infographic activity uses a self-directed, graphic approach to introducing emerging hemophilia A and hemophilia B therapies. In this activity, Steven Pipe, MD and Guy Young, MD introduce the unmet medical needs experienced by patients with hemophilia. They review the mechanisms of action and most recent clinical trial data for the most advanced substitution therapies (emicizumab), hemostatic rebalancing agents (concizumab, marstacimab, and fitusiran), and gene therapies. The faculty also discuss how approval of these treatments could affect patient care, and the questions that need to be addressed in ongoing phase 3 clinical trials for them to enter clinical practice.
