Real-world experiences with prolonged half-life rFVIIIFc in hemophilia A: New data and future prospects
Monday 22 June 12:15 –13:45
Chaired by Dr Manuel Carcao
Room 801, Level 800
I am delighted to invite you to join us at this afternoon symposium, where we will be sharing for the first time real-world data on the use of rFVIIIFc. Fc Fusion Factors are changing the management of hemophilia A, and the talks at this symposium will help you to better understand how you might be able to use these agents in your own practice. We look forward to seeing you.
