Hemophilia is an X-linked recessive disease in which blood lacks blood-clotting proteins. Females have two X chromosomes, indicating that they are generally carriers and transmit the gene to their sons. People with mild hemophilia bleed after surgery, injury, or trauma. Severe hemophilia produces spontaneous internal bleeding in joints and muscles. Fortunately, medicines and lifestyle changes offers hemophiliacs fairly normal lives. Through learning about hemophilia, I became interested in genetic diseases and finding a cure for those
Hemophilia is the oldest know, lifelong bleeding disorder(“Hemophilia”2004). It is named for two inherited diseases in which the blood does not clot normally. Several different plasma proteins must be present for blood to clot property. If one of the plasma proteins is missing, or present at low levels, blood clots very slowly(“Hemophilia” The Marshall Cavendish). The two most common types of hemophilia are: Hemophilia A or FactorVIII(8) deficiency and Hemophilia B of FactorIX(9) deficiency(“Hemophilia” 2002). People with Hemophilia A have low levels of one kind of blood clotting protein and people with Hemophilia B have low levels of another kind(“Hemophilia” The new book).
Hemophilia is a bleeding disorder that slows down the blood clotting process. People who have hemophilia often have longer bleeding after an injury or surgery. People who have severe hemophilia have spontaneous bleeding into the joints and muscles. Hemophilia occurs more commonly in males than in females.
Hemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder that needs a lifelong treatment. Hemophilia could be A or “classic hemophilia” and hemophilia B or “Christmas disease”. Individuals with hemophilia A have factor VIII deficiency, and lack of deficiency IX results in hemophilia B. Hemophilia A is X-chromosome recessive mutation disorder affects females and males and affects 1in 4 males, while hemophilia B or deficiency in factor IX are X-chromosome linked abnormal bleeding that affects approximately 1 in 30000 males globally. Population affected with hemophilia A or B suffers joint bleeding that can be spontaneous, and overtime leads to hemophilic arthroplasty. Also, there may be swollen, joint pain and limited mobility
Hemophilia is caused by a variety of different things. Hemophilia is caused by clotting factors in the blood, inheriting it from family members, and acquiring it. Each type of Hemophilia has a different factor deficiency (Stachnik 220). When bleeding, the body naturally clots by bringing blood cells together (Mayo Clinic Staff 2). When blood clots, there are certain clotting factors that help (2). Hemophilia can be caused by the deficiency
The genetic disorder of Hemophilia is where the clotting factors of the blood are absent or deficient, causing it to be a dangerous disorder to the people who have it. This disorder is where the people who have it will bleed easily and accessibly. Different types of hemophilia are classified by different deficient clotting factors in the blood. Treatments for hemophilia are available, including transfusions of frozen
Hemophilia A is an X-linked disorder caused by a deficient or defective clotting factor VIII (FVIII) protein, and characterized by spontaneous or traumatic bleeding into joints and muscles [Ragni]. It causes afflicted individuals to not be able to coagulate their blood very efficiently or at all when getting an injury in which blood is exposed either internally or externally. This disease can be very dangerous and fatal because major blood loss can occur if the patient has not received treatment.
Disease cause: For the two types of hemophilia(A and B), A is caused by mutations in the F8 gene and mutations in the F9 gene causes hemophilia B. These genes create proteins that are vital in blood clotting, also called coagulation factors. The mutations make them unable to work the ways they need to, which leads to
Haemophilia is a genetic disorder that is passed through generations on the x chromosomes, that affects the clotting factor in the blood and makes patients more prone to spontaneous and injury-resulted bleeding which is usually internal. According to the Haemophilia Foundation Australia (2015), there are over 3,000 cases of haemophilia in Australia, and more than half the cases are in males. The National Haemophilia Foundation (2013) website shows that cases of haemophilia go back to the 2n d century, where Jewish boys who have records of uncontrollable bleeding leading to death in their family do not have to undergo circumcision, also cases in 10th century Arabia show deaths of males after uncontrollable bleeding due to trauma. The first
Hemophilia is a rare genetic blood clotting disorder that primarily affects males. People living with hemophilia do not have enough of, or are missing, one of the blood clotting proteins naturally found in blood. Two of the most common forms of hemophilia are A and B. In persons with hemophilia A (also called classic hemophilia), clotting factor VIII is not present in sufficient amounts or is absent. In persons with hemophilia B (also called Christmas disease), clotting factor IX is not present in sufficient amounts or is absent. People with hemophilia do not bleed more profusely or bleed faster than normal; they bleed for a longer period of time.
Hemophilia, once called the royal disease is a problem with the clotting of blood. When a cut or bruise occurs it can bleed causing problems with people who suffer from hemophilia. Patients with hemophilia will continually bleed longer than a normal individual. This bleeding can lead to harmful levels of blood loss to internal bleeding. Hemophilia is very rare occurring once every five thousand people. Rare, however it is the most common x linked trait. When an injury occurs, blood cells called platelets plug the wound. Then fibrins seal it up. Hemophilia splits into two groups hemophilia A and hemophilia B. People who have hemophilia A have low levels of blood clotting factor 8. Hemophilia B patients have low levels of blood clotting factor
A large number of mutations for Hemophilia A have been detected and identified. The most common mutation found is the intron twenty-two inversion and intron one inversion of the Factor VIII gene. This mutation occurs in 40-50 percent of people with Hemophilia A. It is caused by the homologous recombination between copies of a DNA sequence. One copy is located on the intron 22 region of factor VIII and the other copies are distal to the factor VIII. Intron one of the factor VIII gene occurs when the factor VIII gene is split which results in the production of two chimeric mRNAs. One of the mRNA has have the exon of the factor VIII and the exons 2-6 on the exon gene of the VBP1 gene, which codes for the subunit of prefolding. The second mRNA has all exons except the last exon of the BRCC3 gene. Other patients that have Hemophilia A acquire the

Hemophilia is the oldest known hereditary bleeding disorder. There are two types of hemophilia, A and B (Christmas Disease). Low levels or complete absence of a blood protein essential for clotting causes both. Patients with hemophilia A lack the blood clotting protein, factor VIII, and those with hemophilia B lack factor IX. A person with severe hemophilia has less than 1% of the normal amount of a clotting factor - either Factor VIII (8) or Factor IX (9). People without hemophilia have between 50-150% of the normal level of factor VIII or IX. There are about 20,000 hemophilia patients in the United States. Each year, about 400 babies are born with this disorder. Approximately 85% have hemophilia A and the remainder has hemophilia B.
Hemophilia is a problem with the blood in a person that causes them to bleed not any faster than normal, but they often bleed for a longer period. Their blood is missing the clotting factor (a protein in the bloodstream that works to control bleeding). Hemophilia is quite rare; roughly 1 in every 10,000 persons are born with it. Rarely, hemophilia can be an acquired disease which just means a person is not born with it, but will develop it during their lifetime. This rarity occurs when a person's immune system forms antibodies that attack the clotting factor in the blood. The entire antibody population fights against the blood to prevent the clotting factors from working properly.
