Novo Nordisk is Changing Possibilities in Hemophilia
Date:10/30/2009

PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Novo Nordisk Inc. announced the re-launch of its changing possibilities in hemophilia(TM) campaign through a rebranded Web site and a new community on Facebook®. People living with hemophilia face many daily challenges, and Novo Nordisk is committed to helping this community realize that there is also a lifetime of possibilities.

These new online resources were created to engage and connect people in the hemophilia inhibitor community, which comprises only 800 to 900 Americans, with one another and offer easy access to financial, educational and community support programs that may help them live more normal lives.

"Many families impacted by hemophilia with inhibitors struggle to find tools, resources and support," said Eddie Williams, Vice President of Biopharmaceuticals at Novo Nordisk. "Through changingpossibilities-us.com and the changing possibilities in hemophilia(TM) Facebook Page, Novo Nordisk hopes to provide members of the inhibitor community with a unique forum to share and learn from others' experiences."

Hemophilia is a chronic, inherited bleeding disorder that occurs because certain blood clotting factors are missing or do not work properly. Spontaneous internal bleeding can occur, especially in the joints and muscles. Inhibitors are a serious complication that can develop after treatment in as many as 30 percent of people with hemophilia, most commonly in young children. These patients develop antibodies (or inhibitors) that circulate in the blood stream and actually neutralize, or attack clotting replacements, resulting in an increased risk of bleeding, arthropathy (or joint disease), physical disability and death.

Visitors to the new changing possibilities in hemophilia(TM) Web site can become a member of The Changing Possibilities Coalition and by regist
