Transcript of Hemophilia

Hemophilia Hemophilia is a group of hereditary genetic disorders that impair the bodys ability to control blood clotting, which is used to stop bleeding when a blood vessel is broken. definition: other names:
Hemophilia is also know as the
royal disease, Hemophilia A is called the classic disease, Hemophilia B is called the christmas disease.
called the royal disease because many
royal people in Europe had this disease. The first person to create
a modern description was Dr. John Conrad Otto, a physician from Philidelphia. Hemophilia is diagnosed through looking at pedigrees and looking at family history. You could also get a physical exam or blood tests. Hemophilia is a recessive sex- linked trait on the x chromosome, and is inherited. characteristics are lack of blood clotting. Making bleeding very difficult to stop. The general symptoms are internal or external bleeding episodes. Signs of external bleeding would be excessive nose bleeding or heavy bleeding from a small cut. Hemophilia can come into someones life at any time.
Some people get it as an infant and others not until they are adults. http://media.web.britannica.com/eb-media/84/784-004-C9BAE345.gif http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.askart.com/AskART/photos/FRE20091115_39268/775.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.askart.com/AskART/artists/search/ArtistKeywords.aspx%3Fsearchtype%3DKEYWORDS%26artist%3D28024&usg=__PixgOlvAzZq9RfgahFQkFRysRgM=&h=400&w=269&sz=20&hl=en&start=1&zoom=1&itbs=1&tbnid=2gHn4i4bjW-flM:&tbnh=124&tbnw=83&prev=/images%3Fq%3Djohn%2Bconrad%2Botto%26hl%3Den%26gbv%3D2%26tbs%3Disch:1&ei=CWVVTfnpPJS4sAP9rpi2BQ The main treatment for
hemophilia is replacement
therapy or gene therapy. Replacement and gene
therapy help by placing
clotting factors into the
patients blood. There are no medical
treatments. There is still
research being studied. http://www.nwabr.org/studentbiotech/winners/studentwork/2007/WB_BA_TRONGTHAM/picgenetherapy.jpg People with hemophila live
normal life spans. However depending on the type they can have shorter lives. http://dnascienceandtech.tripod.com/malehemo.jpg http://images.lifescript.com/images/ebsco/images/si55551684.jpg http://www.koate-dvi.com/images/about_hemophilia_a.jpg http://www.visitingdc.com/images/abraham-lincoln-picture.jpg Famous people with
hemophilia are Abraham Lincoln,
and Queen Victoria. Myths of hemophilia are:
only boys have bleeding problems
If a person with hemophilia gets a cut they will immediatly bleed to death. Facts:
Pregnant women can check
if their baby has hemophilia.
Kids with hemophilia can only play tennis, golf, running, swimming and bicycling. Another interesting fact would be that there has been a test on kids to see the difference between kids with hemophilia, and normal kids. Websites:
