A survey of factor prophylaxis in boys with haemophilia followed in North American haemophilia treatment centres



A survey of factor prophylaxis in boys with haemophilia followed in North American haemophilia treatment centres



Haemophilia 9(Suppl. 1): 19-26; Discussion 26



A survey was conducted in 2002 to determine the pattern of factor prophylaxis use in boys or=45 weeks per year, was significantly higher for haemophilia A vs. haemophilia B cases (51% vs. 32%, P< 0.0001), and for boys with severe haemophilia A living in Canada vs. the USA (77% vs. 47%, P< 0.0001). Use of full-dose prophylaxis, defined as the infusion of 25-40 IU kg(-1) of factor VIII on alternate days (minimum three times per week) or 25-40 IU kg(-1) of factor IX twice weekly, was similar for boys
