Hemophilia A is an x-linked bleeding disorder affecting the male population. The disease is caused by a deficiency in the gene for Factor VIII. Studies have shown that there are two variable dinucleotide repeats within the Factor VIII gene, between the intron 13 to intron 22. The distribution is in formative in approximately 70% of these cases.
This study aims to provide us an overview of the pattern of hemophilia A on Filipino patients using the available tools in molecular biology.
