The realization that gene therapy could be just around the corner is both daunting and exciting. Join us for a balanced, patient-centric discussion on gene therapy from multiple perspectives: a provider, a patient in a gene therapy clinical trial, a patient on a newer therapy, and a patient who is satisfied with conventional factor replacement therapy.
Advancements in gene therapy are happening at a fast clip. Having a solid understanding of this technology is important to patients, caregivers and families. Join us for an in-depth discussion of gene therapy including historical aspects, key terms, various approaches to the technology, and how it may revolutionize hemophilia treatment.
This introduction to gene therapy explains how genes work, and how gene therapy can be used to create new therapies for hemophilia.

In this review, the authors discuss some of the primary considerations relevant to investigational gene therapies that employ adeno-associated viral
NHF's Wednesday Webinars for April 2021 will feature an array of speakers and topics of interest to both healthcare providers and patients and families with blood disorders alike.
All webinars are from 2:00pm-3:00pm ET.
This activity is intended for hematologists, pediatricians, primary care physicians, nurses, and nurse practitioners. It is part of Medscape’s series “Clinical Advances in Gene Therapy for Hemophilia.” Presented through a collaboration between Medscape and the National Hemophilia Foundation, the series includes various discussions relevant to the latest data on gene therapy as well as the practicalities associated with using gene therapy for hemophilia.
In Genentech’s ongoing efforts to transparently communicate with the hemophilia community, we are sharing two updates to the Hemlibra label that were requested by the FDA.
These are exciting times in hemophilia research, with many new treatment options on the horizon. Come learn about the latest results of various phases of clinical trials on gene therapy and other new treatment options to see what the future holds for the treatment of hemophilia.
