Description

Activated factor VIII acts as a cofactor for activated factor IX, accelerating the conversion of factor X to activated factor X (factor Xa). Haemophilia A is a sex-linked hereditary disorder of blood coagulation due to decreased levels of factor VIII:C. By replacement therapy the plasma levels of factor VIII are increased, thereby enabling a temporary correction of the factor deficiency and correction of the bleeding tendencies.
