- Discuss progress in the management of hemophilia A with factor-based interventions, including use of extended half-life agents
- Mitigate and manage complications and comorbidities in patients receiving prophylaxis for hemophilia A
- Develop approaches for individualizing therapy based on patient-specific and disease-specific characteristics
- Evaluate available data for novel agents and treatment strategies and determine patients with hemophilia A who may be eligible for a clinical trial
