Haemophilia is an inherited, serious bleeding disorder where a person’s blood does not clot properly, leading to uncontrolled bleeding, which can occur spontaneously or after minor trauma. It can significantly reduce the quality of life of people affected, as well as their family, friends and caregivers.1 Haemophilia A is the most common form of Haemophilia worldwide.2,3
Prophylaxis is a preventative, regular treatment involving either factor VIII replacement therapies or non-factor therapies like Emicizumab (Hemlibra), with the goal to prevent bleeds and allow people with Haemophilia A to lead active lives and achieve quality of life comparable to non-haemophilic individuals 2.
With updates including a new definition of prophylaxis, changes to protections levels and a new worldwide standard of care, the World Federation of Hemophilia Guidelines 2020 reflect important developments in the management of haemophilia with Hemlibra.4
In Bangladesh, Hemlibra is approved for the following indication(s)5:
Routine prophylaxis to prevent bleeding or reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes in adults and children with hemophilia A (congenital factor VIII deficiency) with or without factor VIII inhibitors.
Hemlibra can be used in all age groups.
