MONTREAL, September 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

- El Proyecto Recuperación transforma hemoderivados no utilizados provenientes de donantes de sangre en Canadá en medicina para atender la hemofilia en países en desarrollo

En un acto considerado pionero en todo el mundo, las inestimables proteínas residuales de la producción de hemoderivados a partir de donadores canadienses de sangre se están transformando en tratamientos capaces de salvar la vida y los miembros de miles de personas que viven con hemofilia en países en desarrollo.

La hemofilia es un trastorno hemorrágico heredado y que acompaña a quien lo sufre toda la vida, y afecta a alrededor de una de cada 10.000 personas en el mundo. Cerca de 75% de ellas recibe escaso o nulo tratamiento. La hemofilia es uno de los diversos trastornos que no permiten la correcta coagulación de la sangre. Los hemofílicos padecen de prolongadas hemorragias internas derivadas de heridas de aparentemente poca importancia. El sangrado al interior de articulaciones y músculos es sumamente doloroso y puede causar discapacidad, mientras que el sangrado al interior de órganos importantes, como el cerebro, puede provocar la muerte. La hemofilia A (deficiencia del factor VIII) se trata con el factor VIII, proteína necesaria para la coagulación.

La Federación Mundial de Hemofilia (WFH), en asociación con Canadian Blood Services (CBS) y dos fabricantes de hemoderivados, BIOTEST AG y GRIFOLS, anunciarán oficialmente el lanzamiento del Proyecto Recuperación en el marco  del Foro Mundial de la WFH sobre la seguridad y el suministro de productos para el tratamiento de trastornos hemorrágicos en Montreal, Canadá, el 26 de septiembre. Tras 12 años de trabajo, este proyecto de ayuda humanitaria, inicialmente concebido por la Canadian Hemophilia Society (CHS
