In August, HFA’s Educational Webinar will focus on people with Inhibitors and people with Acquired Hemophilia. Did you know that if you have Acquired Hemophilia your body’s immune system forms antibodies against your own clotting factor? If you or your child has an inhibitor, your immune system forms antibodies against infused factor.
The reality of coping with an immune system response is a commonality in both of these challenging conditions.
Join us to learn the basics of Inhibitors – Who gets them, how, why and what are the treatment options.
Additionally, learn about acquired hemophilia, how it is treated and who may be at risk.
Come and understand the differences and similarities between these two conditions.
This webinar will address the following:
Causes, diagnosis, treatment options, available support
Acquired Hemophilia 101
Causes, diagnosis, treatment options, where to find more information and support
Similarities and differences between Inhibitors and Acquired Hemophilia
After the webinar presentation, there will be a short time for Q&A.
