Rare New Case of Pseudotumor in non-Hemophiliac Patient Reported

Researchers at the Mayo Clinic Arizona have reported a third rare case of hemophilic pseudotumor (HP) identified in a non-hemophiliac patient. Findings from the investigation, “Hemophilic pseudotumor in a non-hemophilic patient treated with a hybrid procedure of preoperative embolization of the feeding arteries followed by surgical resection—A…

Gene Therapy Approach, Tested on Liver Cells and Mice, Seen as Potential Treatment for Hemophilia B

Researchers, working with mice, have developed a new way of producing substantial numbers of gene-corrected liver cells with the possibility of repopulation in vivo. The strategy, which relies on the liver’s unusual regenerative skills, may hold promise for the treatment of diseases such as hemophilia B. The study by scientists at Oregon Health & Science University,…

Gene Therapy Paper on Repair in Hemophilia B Reviewed

Researchers at the Center for Research in Transplantation and Immunology in France have reviewed a paper concerning certain strategies utilized to correct hemophilia B and the importance of gene delivery vehicles in successful therapies for treatment of the condition. The review paper, “Successful correction of hemophilia by CRISPR/Cas9…
