Hemophilia Treatment: New Insights Contribute to Minimize or Eliminate Side Effects in the Future

Research results from Institute Krems Bioanalytics of IMC Krems and Takeda will help to treat patients suffering from hemophilia A more effectively.

KREMS, Austria - Nov. 22, 2022 - PRLog -- Immune responses against Factor VIII, which is used to treat hemophilia A (bleeding disorder), are influenced by the microenvironment of antigen presenting cells. This is the result of a scientific study conducted in cooperation between the Institute Krems Bioanalytics of IMC University of Applied Sciences Krems and the international pharmaceutical company Takeda, which was recently published in the journal Frontiers in Immunology. In this study, a cell culture model was used to investigate the impact of the microenvironment on factor VIII uptake and processing  in antigen presenting cells. The observed alterations in protein processing might have profound effects on immune responses to FVIII. The novel data provide the basis for the development of future FVIII therapies that elicit minimal immune responses in patients.
