Devising a best practice approach to prophylaxis in boys with severe haemophilia: evaluation of current treatment strategies

Carcao, M.; Chambost, H. and Ljung, Rolf LU (2010) In Haemophilia 16. p.41373-41373
Abstract
Data from prospective studies clearly demonstrate the efficacy of prophylactic treatment of haemophilia in reducing joint- or life-threatening bleeding and the associated consequences for quality of life. Debate remains, however, regarding the optimal implementation of prophylaxis. Our aim in this review was to identify a best practice approach to factor replacement prophylaxis in boys with haemophilia. We evaluate prophylactic treatment regimens currently used in Swedish, Canadian and French centres and highlight key issues, including the optimal age for starting prophylaxis, the optimal treatment dosage/schedule and patient compliance.
