Wachs, Aurelie Goyenvalle, Annemieke Aarstma-Rus, Michael Ott, Andreas Tiede, J örg Langemeier, Jens Bohne Loss-of-function mutations in the human coagulation factor 9 (F9) gene lead to hemophilia B. Here, we dissected the consequences and the pathomechanism of a non-coding mutation (c.2545A>G) in theF9 3 ’ untranslated region. Using wild type and mutant factor IX (FIX) minigenes we revealed that the mutation leads to reducedF9 mRNA and FIX protein levels and to lower coagulation activity of cell culture supernatants. The ...

AbstractAtrial fibrillation is the most common cardiac arrhythmia and is a major cause of embolic stroke. In patients at high bleeding risk such as those with hemophilia, the thromboembolic prevention is challenging. We herein present three patients affected by moderate to severe hemophilia and atrial fibrillation that were treated in our Institution between March 2018 and September 2019, with percutaneous left atrial appendage closure. In patients with relative or absolute contraindications to long-term anticoagulant therapy, the left atrial appendage closure could represent a reasonable strategy.

THE MANAGEMENT of inherited or acquired coagulation disorders can be challenging during cardiac surgery with extracorporeal circulation. Although guidelines recommend preoperative supplementation of factor XI (FXI) with severe hemophilia C, there are certain risks involved with this strategy with the application of cardiac bypass.

Abstract Emicizumab is a humanized anti-FIX/FX (factor IXa/X) bispecific monoclonal antibody that mimics FVIIIa (activated factor VIII) cofactor function. The hemostatic efficacy of emicizumab has been confirmed in clinical studies of patients with hemophilia A, irrespective of the presence of FVIII inhibitors. Emicizumab differs in some properties from FVIIIa molecule. Emicizumab requires no activation by thrombin and is not inactivated by activated protein C, but emicizumab-mediated coagulation is regulatable and maintains hemostasis. A small amount of FIXa (activated factor IX) is required to initiate emicizuma...
