For effective blood clotting, the body requires several plasma proteins called factors. People affected with hemophilia are either missing a particular factor that is essential to the clotting process or the factor is present but doesn't work. Without this active factor, bleeding into muscles, joints and internal organs can occur, often without any noticeable trauma.
The treatment of a bleeding episode can vary depending on the severity of the disease; for most patients, however, it involves replacement of the missing protein through the intravenous administration of factor concentrate.
