The management of inhibitors continues to be one of the greatest challenges facing researchers, clinicians, and patients with hemophilia. Thankfully we seem to have taken a giant step forward vis-a-vie the introduction of Hemlibra, the first and only subcutaneous treatment option for patients of all ages who have severe hemophilia A and inhibitors. But what exactly is this form of non-factor replacement therapy? How does it work? And what should patients and families impacted by hemophilia and inhibitors be thinking and asking their clinicians about? That’s what we’re here to discuss with this month’s guest, Dr. Guy Young. Welcome to Episode 11 - or our Inhibitors and New Therapies Episode - of the Ask The Expert Podcast!
