Elena Santagostino, MD, PhD, of entro Emofilia e Trombosi, Fondazione IRCCS Ca' Granda, Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico in Milan, Italy discusses the safety and efficacy of recombinant fusion protein linking coagulation factor IX with albumin (rIX-FP) in two phase 3 studies involving hemophilia B patients. As Dr Santagostino states in the interview, this may result in a paradigm shift in how these patients are managed.
