Hemophilia Therapy: Rasputin to Recombinants

I will present “Hemophilia Therapy: Rasputin to Recombinants” at the Northeast Laboratory Conference, Thursday, October 22, 1:30-3:00 PM at the Portland Holiday Inn by the Bay, Portland, Maine. My talk includes an overview of hemophilia inheritance, pathology, treatment and factor inhibitors. It then moves to hemophilia history including the story of Tsarovich Alexis of Russia, 1904-1918 and holy man Rasputin, development of effective treatments in the 1960s and 1970s, the impact of AIDS in the 1980s, and the subsequent development of recombinant factors preparations. PDF handouts (updated 10/23/09) for my talk are attached in the two per-page format, Hemophilia Therapy, Rasputin to Recombinants (2) or the six-per-page format, Hemophilia Therapy, Rasputin to Recombinants (6).
