Abstract

Abstract: Current treatments in the field of haemophilia are changing the phenotype of many patients with severe haemophilia to that of mild haemophilia. Despite this improve-ment, those with mild-to-moderate haemophilia A and haemophilia B continue to ex-perience unmet needs. Whereas some patients with mild-to-moderate haemophilia experience similar complications to those of patients with severe haemophilia, they possess several unique attributes. These include a challenging diagnosis and variabil-ity in bleeding symptoms and treatment needs. In addition, haemophilia is an under-recognized condition in women even though many women with mild-to-moderate haemophilia experience the same symptoms and complications as men with haemo-philia. These women also have their own unique challenges with this disease. This supplement highlights many of the unmet needs in men and women with mild-to-moderate haemophilia. The conclusions of each of these papers reinforce the need for additional research and resources for this patient population
