With the emergence of long-acting factors for the management and control of hemophilia A, it has become apparent that standardized dosing may not be appropriate. This educational activity will illustrate best practices in the prophylaxis and management of hemophilia A using patient cases. Various pharmacologic approaches for long-term prophylaxis and managing bleeds will be demonstrated, taking into account patient specific factors to be considered when selecting long-acting factors and treatment intervals, pharmacokinetics and target troughs, phenotype, and convenience.
- Taking into account individual patient circumstances, determine the appropriate dose and interval of a long-acting factor.
- Review the benefits of long-acting replacement products with respect to reduced frequency of administration, potential to achieve high trough levels, and the potential for improved adherence.
- Illustrate situations (e.g., development of inhibitors, acute bleeds, development of a chronic illness, such as cardiovascular disease) that would require a change in therapy.
