Bringing Together Two Worlds - Scientific and Clinical Insights for All-Round Bleed Protection in Haemophilia A

Tuesday, June 27, 2023
1:15 - 2:30 pm ET
Room: 511

Join Davide Matino, Craig Kessler, Viola Vogel, Robert Klamroth, Yesim Dargaud, Guy Young and Paul Batty to hear the latest scientific and clinical insights into the management of haemophilia A.

Octapharma’s symposium on haemophilia A this year is dedicated to both scientists and clinicians. The speakers present data from the NuPreviq trial and the matching adjusted indirect comparisons (MAIC) analyses of Nuwiq® vs extended half-life (EHL) products as well as introduce the PROVE study. We also discuss the impact of prophylaxis on microRNA expression (biomarkers of joint and bone health) and how to utilise the power of RNASeq to understand inhibitor development.

The symposium is open to congress participants in Montréal, and will be live-streamed for participants attending virtually.
