13 vonWillebrand Disease
vonWillebrand Disease (VWD) is the most common inherited bleeding disorder, with an estimated incidence as high as 1 in 100 to 1000. Classification: There are three main types of VWD. 1. Type I - by far the most common form. Inheritance is autosomal dominant. Most patients are heterozygotes. Mild to moderate decrease in plasma VWF concentrations. Most patients have mild disease with excessive bleeding after surgery or trauma. 2. Type II - Rare, patients have normal levels but dysfunctional VWF, leading to decreased VWF activity. IIa - deficiency in high and medium molecular weight VWF due to either inability to secrete them from the megakaryocyte or endothelial cell or due to proteolysis as soon as they enter the circulation. IIb - also a deficiency in high molecular weight VWF, but due to inappropriate binding of VWF to platelets. 3. Type III - Severe decrease in plasma VWF levels. Most individuals are the offspring of two Type I patients and therefore homozygous.

14 2. DDAVP (desmopressina)
Options for therapy: 1. Cryoprecipitate (which is rich in VWF) or Factor VIII concentrates (which contain some high molecular weight VWF) For minor bleeding such as epistaxis, a single dose may suffice. Perioperatively, either must be given twice a day until hours post-op 2. DDAVP (desmopressina) Triples the plasma VWF in normal patients and in those with mild VWD. Not effective in Type III, because there is no VWF to begin with. Should do trial to ensure that patient will respond before actually using DDAVP for treatment. Effects last 2-3 days before tachyphylaxis can occur 3. Note: Aspirin is totally contraindicated in patients with VWD because of inhibitory effect on platelet aggegration. This would exacerbate VWD. There is an acquired form of VWD, which occurs when antibodies inhibit VWF or when tumors (such as lymphoid tumors) that adsorb VWF on to their surface are present.

16 I. Review - Factor VIII(FVIII):
Factor VIII is the precursor to Factor VIIIa, which catalyzes the activation of Factor IX to IXa. Protein C and Protein S function to inactivate Factor VIIIa. FVIII normally circulates in the plasma bound to vonWillebrand Factor. This association has several functions including protecting FVIII from proteolysis, enhancing FVIII synthesis, and concentrating FVIII at the site of active hemostasis. FVIII is a dimer with A,B,and C domains on each monomer. When activated, it becomes a trimer which has lost most of the B domain. II. Hemophilia A A. Inheritance is X-linked recessive. B. Incidence is 1 in 5000 live male births. C. Mechanism - quantitative deficiency in the synthesis of FVIII

17 D. Clinical features 1. Suspect hemophilia in any male who has history of extensive bleeding after trauma or spontaneous bleeding into joints and muscles. 2. Excessive bleeding at time of circumcision 3. Severity of bleeding depends on level of FVIII Severe hemophilia - FVIII < 1% - at risk for spontaneous hemorrhages and soft tissue bleeds. Moderate hemophilia - FVIII 1-5% Mild hemophilia - FVIII > 5% - little risk for spontaneous bleeds but may bleed excessively following surgery or trauma. E. Lab abnormalities 1. Prolongation of aPTT (variable with degree of hemophilia) 2. Decreased FVIII acitvity 3. Normal vonWillebrand Factor and Ristocetin cofactor 4. Normal bleeding time

18 4. The amount of FVIII to give depends on the severity of the bleed.
F. Management 1. Avoid aspirin 2. Mild hemophilia - prophylaxis with desmopressin (DDAVP) before dental procedures or minor surgery. Desmopressin induces release of stored FVIII and vonWillebrand Factor. If the increase in FVIII activity is not sufficient, administer FVIII concentrates. Antifibrinolytics such as aminocaproic acid may be helpful. For major surgery, give FVIII concentrates perioperatively. 3. Moderate and Severe hemophilia - give FVIII concentrate at the earliest sign of bleeding. Desmopressin will not be helpful because these patients do not have enough stored FVIII. 4. The amount of FVIII to give depends on the severity of the bleed. Major bleeding or surgery % replacement Hemarthroses - 25% replacement For major bleeding, treat for 10 days. To prevent hemarthosis induced joint destruction, some propose prophylactic FVIII concentrates three times a week to maintain trough levels of FVIII activity between 1-3%.



21 Il fattore VIII ricombinante è disponibile per
Prima priorità - Pazienti mai precedentemente trattati Seconda priorità - Pazienti HCV e HIV negativi Terza priorità - Pazienti con infezione da HIV Quarta priorità - Pazienti con infezione da HCV

22 5. Available forms of FVIII
Fresh frozen plasma Cryoprecipitate - contains FVIII, vonWillebrand factor, and fibrinogen Concentrates Intermediate purity with specific activity of FVIII < than 10 units/mg. High purity with specific activity of FVIII ~ 150 units/mg. Ultra-high purity with specific activity of FVIII ~ 3000 units/mg Recombinant FVIII with specific activity of FVIII units/mg. Porcine FVIII - high degree of homology with human FVIII, but much greater potency. There is about 25% cross-reactivity between porcine and human FVIII.

23 III. Factor VIII Inhibitors A. Acquired, not inherited
B. They are antibodies that neutralize FVIII and can either be alloantibodies against exogenous FVIII or autoantibodies. C. They are a serious complication of FVIII treatment in the severe hemophiliac population where the incidence of developing an inhibitor is 15-20%.. D. Inhibitors can also occur in non-hemophiliac patients in the setting of: 1. Idiopathic conditions - i.e. otherwise normal elderly individuals. 2. Autoimmune disorders such as systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. 3. Malignancies such as lymphoproliferative disorders, lymphomas, and solid tumors. 4. Drug reactions to penicillin, chloramphenicol, phenytoin, etc. 5. Pregnancy and the postpartum state

24 E. Risk factors for development of antibodies
1. Severity of hemophilia: Patients with severe hemophilia are at much higher risk because they are exposed to more FVIII therapy. 2. Age of the patient and degree of FVIII exposure: % of heavily treated hemophiliac children develop antibodies by the age of 20. 3. Genetic defect that results in the absence of synthesis of FVIII protein: These patients are at greater risk for developing antibodies after treatment with FVIII concentrates. F. Characteristics of FVIII antibodies 1. The majority of FVIII inhibitors are IgG antibodies, more specifically of the IgG4 subclass. 2. There are two main types of antibodies Type I antibodies - seen in classic hemophiliacs. Their inhibition of FVIII follows linear kinetics. Type II antibodies - these are the autoantibodies and they exhibit a more complex pattern of inhibition. 3. Antibodies are identified by their ability to neutralize FVIII at 37 degrees Celcius after incubation for 2-3 hours.

25 2. Laboratory information
G. Diagnosis 1. Clinical suspicion a. Whenever classic hemophiliacs show a decreased response to FVIII replacement therapy, screen for FVIII inhibitor. b. Acquired inhibitors should be suspected when non-hemophiliac patients present with spontaneous hematomas with sudden, life-threatening bleeds. 2. Laboratory information a. aPTT - will be prolonged and will not correct upon mixing patient's plasma with normal plasma. b. However, the presence of FVIII inhibitor can be confirmed by adding inhibitor plasma with normal plasma and then assaying all the residual clotting factors in the normal plasma. c. Quantification of the inhibitor can be done with the Bethesda Assay

26 H. Characteristics of patients - Grouped as low responders or high responders
1. Low responders are patients who usually have low titers of inhibitor (less than 10 BU), which does not increase after challenge with FVIII. Therefore, these patients do not show significant anamnestic response with subsequent FVIII treatments. 2. High responders are mostly hemophiliacs who develop a high titer of inhibitor when challenged with FVIII.

27 a. Mild bleeding episodes - options include:
I. Management Low responders a. Mild bleeding episodes - options include: Prothrombin complexes - contain all Vitamin K-dependent clotting factors (II, VII, IX, X, and thrombin) Activated prothrombin complexes - contain activated clotting factors Recombinant FVIII The first two are bypass agents because they do not contain FVIII. Other bypass agents include Factor VIIa and Factor IXa, which bypass the necessity for FVIII mediated activation of FIX. However, these two are under clinical trials currently and may be associated with increased risk of thrombosis. b. Severe bleeding - options include: High dose human Factor VIII Porcine Factor VIII (see above) Factor VIIa or another by pass agent

28 High responders a. Mild bleeding episodes - considerations include:
Avoiding FVIII products to prevent an anamnestic response, which would preclude this treatment from being a treatment option in the event of future bleeding episodes. b. Severe bleeding episodes Use human or porcine FVIII until an anamnestic response occurs, after which a bypass agent must be used instead. 5. Alternative therapies a. Immunosuppressive agents to control antibody production Corticosteroids Cyclophosphamide Azithoprine b. Intravenous gamma globulin - in the hope that some antibodies in this pooled sample may be directed against the inhibitor c. Induction of immune tolerance to suppress inhibitor formation by administration of FVIII on a continuous basis.

29 Factor IX Deficiency I. Review - Factor IX(FIX):
Factor IX is the precursor to Factor IXa, which is a Vitamin K-dependent serine protease that catalyzes the activation of Factor X to Xa FIX normally circulates in the plasma in an inactive form. Factor VIIIa plays a role in the enzymatic activation of FIX to FIXa. FIX can also be activated directly by Tissue Factor - Factor VIIa complex in the extrinsic pathway. FIXa is a serine protease. II. Hemophilia B (Christmas Disease) A. Inheritance is X-linked recessive. B. Incidence is 1 in 30,000 live male births. C. Mechanism - quantitative deficiency in the synthesis of FIX

30 D. Clinical features - identical to Hemophilia A
1. Suspect hemophilia in any male who has history of extensive bleeding after trauma or spontaneous bleeding into joints or muscles. 2. Bleeding at time of circumcision 3. Severity of bleeding depends on level of FIX Severe hemophilia - FIX < 1% - at risk for spontaneous hemorrhages and soft tissue bleeds. Moderate hemophilia - FIX 1-5% Mild hemophilia - FIX > 5% - little risk for spontaneous bleeds but may bleed excessively following surgery or trauma. E. Lab abnormalities 1. Prolongation of aPTT (variable with degree of hemophilia) 2. Decreased FIX acitvity 3. Normal bleeding time and thrombin time.



33 F. Management 1. Avoid aspirin
2. Mild hemophilia - Antifibrinolytics such as aminocaproic acid may be helpful. For major surgery, give FIX concentrates perioperatively. For surgery, the FIX activity should be maintained between 30-60%. Higher levels may lead to thrombosis (see below). 3. Moderate and Severe hemophilia - give FIX concentrate at the earliest sign of bleeding. 4. Available forms of FIX FIX concentrates Prothrombin complex - contains the inactive Vitamin K-dependent clotting factors Activated prothrombin complex - contains the active Vitamin K-dependent clotting factors. Fresh frozen plasma - contains FIX. Limited by the fact that unless exchange transfusion is done, sufficient FFP cannot be given to patients with severe hemophilia to raise FIX levels sufficiently in order to prevent or control bleeding episodes.
