Bleeding Disorders

Bleeding disorders are a family of diseases in which blood proteins or platelets that help the blood to clot are missing or do not function properly, resulting in prolonged bleeding.


Alprolix, a longer half-life factor IX, approved by Health Canada
Alprolix™, a recombinant factor IX concentrate manufactured by Biogen Idec, was approved by Health Canada March 21, 2014 and by the U.S. FDA a week later. It is indicated in adults and children (≥12 years) with hemophilia B for routine prophylactic treatment to prevent or reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes and for control of bleeding episodes.

Hemophilia Today (HT) interviewed two physicians who were closely involved with the development and clinical trials of Alprolix.
