The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) and Medscape are pleased to announce the availability of a new, comprehensive online educational activity on gene therapy. “Moving Beyond Factor: Shifting the Paradigm in Hemophilia Through Gene Therapy” was originally presented as a live preconference symposium at the 61st American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting & Exposition on December 6, 2019.

The activity features an international panel of experts that review the science underlying therapy strategies, provide updates on the latest data for therapies in development, and critically evaluate the potential role gene therapy may play in patient care, both now and in the future. It is intended for hematologists, pediatric hematologists, and all members of the clinical care team involved in the care of patients with hemophilia.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will:

  • Have increased knowledge regarding the
    • Most current safety and efficacy data for emerging gene therapy options in hemophilia
  • Have greater competence related to
    • Identifying the role of gene therapy in an evolving treatment paradigm
