    Also there is genetic engineering to help reduce the chance of a child having hemophilia.
    People with hemophilia should not use Asprin because Asprin prevents the blood from clotting and this is dangerous to people with hemophilia because their blood already doesn't clott well.
    No for-sure cure.

    A cure is currently being developed

    Hemophilia C
    Least common type, lack of clotting factor XI and symptoms are often mild with this type of hemophilia.

    Cause
    lack of enough factor VIII or IX, (in most cases) hemophilia is inherited; and affects most males.

    Neck pain
    Double vision
    Treatments
    Standard treatment involves replacing the missing clottting factor through a vein called intravenous infusions.
    Diagnosing a bleeding disoreder is important so that a doctor can take extra care of a patent incase he/she needs surgery, and can test or warn other family members who possibly could be affected.
    Many people are able to lead normal lives. However, some patients have major bleeding events and a small percentage of people with hemophilia die from severe bleeding.
    Patients may recieve blood donations from others without hemophilia to give the patient some clotting factors.
    Also there is genetic engineering to help reduce the chance of a child having hemophilia.
    People with hemophilia should not use Asprin because Asprin prevents the blood from clotting and this is dangerous to people with hemophilia because their blood already doesn't clott well.
    No for-sure cure.
    Interesting facts
    A cure is currently being developed
    new genetic material that instructs the cells to produce either factor VIII or factor IX, which the cells are then reinserted back into the person with hemophilia.
    There have been many successes with both animal and humans.
    Bleeding is most common in joints from the contant movement.

    Interesting Facts
    Stephen Hawking has it
    One in 150 kids have it

    Only 11% of that 20% survive past age 20
    There are no known cases of age past 50
    The oldest known survivor is 47
    First discovered in 1947
    Since it was discovered there have been only 326,896 cases, which is good considering it has been around for 60 years.
