Bayer HealthCare Awards $2.5 Million to Advance Hemophilia Research and Improve Patient Care
Date:7/14/2009

h.D., associate professor and director, Greater Los Angeles Veterans Affairs Healthcare System, Los Angeles, Calif., will address this issue by investigating why black hemophilia A patients are twice as likely as white patients to develop neutralizing antibodies (inhibitors) against replacement Factor VIII proteins. In another study, Early Career Investigator Award recipient Michael P. Horn, Ph.D., senior scientist, University Hospital of Bern, Bern, Switzerland, will investigate the influence an individual's immune system and specific factors have on the risk of inhibitor development.

"Through our support of research, clinical investigators, fellows in training and others, Bayer is helping to develop the next generation of hemophilia care and treatment professionals while supporting research that may lead to novel therapies," said John Murphy, Ph.D., member of the BHAP Grants, Review and Awards Committee and director, Molecular Biology, Protein Therapeutics, Bayer HealthCare. "These investments in basic research and patient services not only demonstrate our passion for advancing hemophilia treatment, but illustrate our ongoing commitment to the global hemophilia community."

Since 2002, BHAP has distributed more than $17.5 million through 157 research awards. Recipients from 27 countries have helped produce more than 80 abstracts and 60 papers to date.

Following are the 2009 award recipients for each of the BHAP categories:
