People with haemophilia receive recombinant factor concentrates to help their blood to clot. However, in some people, the immune system may produce antibodies which block the effects of the treatment. These antibodies are known as ‘inhibitors’.
Each year we have several smaller educational meetings in Dublin and around the country to address members with specific needs and issues, to ensure we are fully inclusive of all members on our database we need to have updated details. Do you, or a member of your family, have a current diagnosis of having an inhibitor – either high titre or low titre? If so please get in touch with the Society to ensure that we can provide you or your family member with the most up to date information, notification of educational meetings and indeed that we continue to provide the best level of support and education to our members!!
If you had an inhibitor in the past and it is successfully been treated please let us know so that we can update our records.
