In this episode, we take a look back at a historic summer that saw the National Hemophilia Foundation's (NHF) Annual Meeting and the World Federation of America's (WFH) World Congress convene in Orlando for the largest gathering ever of people with bleeding disorders. In addition to featuring some conference related content, our Like Share Comment segment highlight a story on Elijah Warren, a high school swimming star with hemophilia as well as a recent article from John Hopkins University on the power of humor in healthcare. Finally, we close this month's episode with a remembrance of Matt Stinger, a community member and advocate who passed unexpectedly this month at 33 years old.

Headlines

Novo Nordisk’s B-HERO-S study has found, to the surprise of some, that many patients with mild or moderate hemophilia B in the United States experience their condition negatively impacting their career, education, and recreational activities- something that can be overlooked in those affected by mild or moderate hemophilia as opposed to severe. Link.

High schooler Federico Parres is one of five team members on the VEX Robotics World Championship Team F, responsible for creating Caerus-7, a ball-flinging robot. Federico lives with severe hemophilia A and plans on becoming an engineer one day. Link.

Bayers’ Hemophilia Awards Program recently announced 16 physicians and researchers from 11 countries who will receives grant money totaling about two million dollars, including 6 individuals from the United States. This is the fourteenth year Bayer has run this program. Link

A study published in the European journal Haematologica examines a new potential model for how to treatment patients with hemophilia A who undergo surgery. Something I personally find interesting given our ongoing need to learn more about aging with hemophilia. Link

The FDA has approved a new needleless reconstitution device called Baxject III for Shire’s long-lasting factor FVIII therapy Adynovate. For those familiar, it is a very similar device to that which is found in Advate. Link

Two medical advisory updates have been announced by the National Hemophilia Foundation regarding existing products:

NHF Medical Advisory 419 (four-one-nine) states that Bayer has announced a voluntary recall of two lots of Kogenate FS for a loss of potency. The lot numbers are 270TN1C and 270R978. For more information or to arrange for an exchange please call the Recall Processing Center at 855-838-5782. Link
