News & Events

Genentech, a member of the Roche Group, today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Hemlibra® for routine prophylaxis to prevent or reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes in adults and children, ages newborn and older, with hemophilia A without factor VIII inhibitors (FVIII). The therapy, which was co-developed by Genentech, Chugai and Roche, was already FDA approved in the fall of 2017 for routine prophylaxis to prevent or reduce the frequency of bleeding episodes in adults and children with hemophilia A with FVIII inhibitors.

The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) is pleased to announce the 2018 NHF-Shire Clinical Fellowship award recipients: Hanny Al-Samkari, MD, of Boston Hemophilia Center/Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard University, and Michael H. White, MD, of Emory University and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA).

Fall is upon us as crisper, cooler weather prevails across much of the country. It is arguably the season most evocative of change, and in that spirit NHF’s information resource center HANDI would like to share several resources that may offer guidance as you or a family member face a major life transition.

HANDI hopes that you find these resources to be helpful and informative!

To this end, the NHLBI has released a Request for Information (RFI) to solicit perspectives and comments from the bleeding disorders community on potential strategies, scientific opportunities and priorities, and the requisite infrastructure to optimize inhibitor research.
