About Hemophilia and Hemophilia B

People with hemophilia do not produce adequate amounts of Factor VIII or Factor IX protein, which are necessary for blood to effectively clot. If untreated, patients with severe hemophilia have a greatly reduced life expectancy. According to the World Health Organization, more than 400,000 people in the world have hemophilia, corresponding to an incidence of 15 to 20 in every 100,000 males born worldwide. Hemophilia B is largely an inherited disorder in which the Factor IX protein needed to form blood clots is missing or reduced. In approximately 30 percent of cases, there is no family history of the disorder and the condition is the result of a spontaneous gene mutation. The first diagnosis of hemophilia B occurred in 1952.
