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

BOSTON, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Bayer HealthCare announced today that it awarded 20 individuals from nine countries funding totaling nearly $2.5 million through the Bayer Hemophilia Awards Program (BHAP). As the largest program of its kind in hemophilia, BHAP supports innovative research and educational initiatives around the world. Recipients were selected by a committee of internationally recognized experts in hemophilia treatment and care and were honored last evening during the 2009 International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) Congress in Boston, Massachusetts.

"Bayer's continued support of the BHAP program - now in its seventh year - is part of a collaborative academic-industry effort to increase understanding of hemophilia and other bleeding disorders in an effort to improve the lives of patients and their families," said David Lillicrap, M.D., chairman of the BHAP Grants, Review and Awards Committee and professor in the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, Queen's University, Kingston, Canada. "This year's applications were outstanding and, on behalf of the entire review committee, we look forward to the positive impact that these projects' results will have on the global hemophilia community."

BHAP provides funds that support clinical and basic research in bleeding disorders; encourage new physicians to enter the field; and support education for caregivers. Funding priorities include research into inhibitor development and its treatment; the investigation of novel recombinant molecules, new drug delivery methods, and experimental models; studies that assess health outcomes and quality-of-life issues related to hemophilia; and programs that increase the diagnosis of hemophilia in underserved areas.

Inhibitor formation is considered by many patient groups as the most serious complication facing people with hemophilia today. Special Project Award recipient Tom E. Howard, M.D., P
