What is Hemophilia?
Type A haemophilia is an inherited genetic disease that involves the partial or total reduction of the activity of a specific protein: Factor VIII.
This anomaly causes an alteration in the blood coagulation process, which exposes those affected to a greater risk of bleeding episodes both internal and external, potentially very dangerous if not properly treated.
Today, extremely effective therapies are available on the market, such as replacement therapy, which makes it possible to integrate the missing Factor VIII, thus allowing optimal management of the disease.
Thanks to these treatments, subjects suffering from haemophilia can thus lead an almost normal life and rely on a life expectancy comparable to that of a healthy subject.
