    There are two forms of hemophilia. Hemophilia A is the lack or scarcity of clotting factor VIII. 9-10% of patients with hemophilia suffer from hemophilia A. In hemophilia B, however, is totally missing is present in amounts insufficient coagulation factor IX. In rare cases, hemophilia can be acquired, ie not appear at birth but long lifetime; acquired hemophilia appears when the body forms antibodies (protein) to fight

    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

There are many other rare forms of hemophilia with deficiencies in clotting factor 1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 11, 12, and 13 but type A and B specifically involve defective genes relating to factor 8 and 9, respectively.

    Hemophilia (sometimes spelled haemophilia) is a rare genetic blood disorder which prevents blood from clotting normally. There are two types of hemophilia, and they are hemophilia A and hemophilia B. Hemophilia A is also called classic hemophilia, and is caused by a mutated or missing factor VIII, which is a clotting protein. Hemophilia B is sometimes called Christmas disease, because the disorder was first reported in a patient with the last name Christmas. Hemophilia B is caused by a mutated or

    Introduction Hemophilia A is a known X-linked recessive disorder. This condition or bleeding disorder is characterized by a deficiency in the activity of a coagulation factor, which in this case is F8 or coagulation factor VIII. This condition is clinically known to be heterogeneous and its severity depends on the plasma level of the coagulation factor VIII. Varying levels of hemophilia exist which are categorized based on percentage of coagulation factor within blood plasma compared to normal levels
