Icon: Question

What is hemophilia?

Icon: Answer

Hemophilia is a bleeding disorder that prevents blood from clotting properly. There are a number of proteins in blood, called “clotting factors,” that work together in a series of steps to form blood clots. People with hemophilia are missing one of these clotting factors.

 

Icon: Question

What are inhibitors?

Icon: Answer

Inhibitors are a complication of hemophilia. People with severe hemophilia A or B are usually treated by replacing the missing factor VIII or factor IX through infusion. For some people, however, this treatment does not work. Their bodies react as though the treatment is an invader and their immune system develops antibodies, or “inhibitors,” that attack and neutralize the factor VIII or IX. When this happens, the factor is not able to stop the bleeding.
