Hemophilia is a condition where the blood does not want toclog up or clot in an open wound or abrasion. The cause is a factordeficiency in the plasma of the blood needed to c…oagulate the bloodfor it to clot. It is sex-linked genetic disorder where females carry the conditionand pass it on to their children; males exhibit the condition. Atpresent, there is no cure.
More or less, the answer is you can't. Hemophilia is a genetic disease, not infectious. It is caused by agenetic defect on the X chromosome (I think) that prevents bloodfro…m clotting. Thus, even minor wounds, like paper cuts, arepotentially deadly. Hemophilics must live a very cautionary life,because any breach to the skin could be fatal. Hemophilia, whilenot infectious, can be inherited from parent to son. Women can carry hemophilia, meaning they have the defect but do notshow symptoms. This is because they have two X chromosomes, and ifone is deficient, the other will serve in its place. The only wayyou can get hemophilia is if a parent or other "direct" ancestor(parents, grandparents, great-grandparents,great-great-grandparents, etc.). So unless you can trace a directancestor to having hemophilia (or carrying it), you have nothing toworry about. Haemophilus is not a STD.
Hemophilia normally refers to a genetic disorder that can be eitherinherited or the result of a spontaneous mutation. Since thegenetic form of hemophilia is linked to a mutati…on on the Xchromosome, males typically show the full symptoms while femaleswith the mutation typically have somewhat mitigated symptoms ornone at all. While the majority of the cases of genetic hemophilia areinherited, meaning that the genes were passed down from the theparents, approximately 1/3 of the cases are spontaneous mutations.The mutation occurs at conception, meaning that all genetic formsbasically take effect at birth. Acquired hemophilia is a result of some other influence such asliver damage or specific medications. This form of hemophilia isneither inherited nor genetic. In short, technically anyone can get hemophilia. Genetic hemophiliais present at birth, and it tends to impact the health of malesmore than females, but can affect females too.
The majority of hemophilia cases are genetic and the individual is born with it. Approximately 1/3 of the cases of genetic hemophilia are spontaneous mutations in that person …while the other 2/3 of cases inherit the mutation from their parents. Since the mutation is located on the X chromosome it traditionally has a larger impact on males (having only one X, they lack the secondary set of genes to offset that mutation). Acquired hemophilia, while much more rare can be caused by various conditions. Since the clotting factor proteins are primarily produced in the liver, liver disease, liver damage, and even certain medications can slow or stop the production of these clotting factors and cause acquired hemophilia.
Traditional Hemophilia is present from birth and throughout the individual's life. This is because the disorder is genetically linked and genetics are pretty much set at the t…ime of conception. Acquired Hemophilia, which is much more rare, can begin at pretty much any stage of an individual's life. While being more common in older people than younger, any person on certain medications, people with liver disease, and a handful of other situations can develop acquired hemophilia. (Acquired hemophilia is not inherited.)
Haemophilia is a congenital disorder, those that have it were bornwith it and it manifests early in life.
yes, through blood tests
Yes, hemophilia is hereditary. It is passed from mother to son.
Hemophilia is a disorder that is defined by the absence of one or more proteins required for blood clotting. If a person with hemophilia is injured, the bleeding is prolonged …because a clot forms very slowly. This can lead to massive internal as well as external bleeding from serious injuries.
It is possible yes, but highly unlikley. There have only been a couple of cases of female hemophilics. These were the products of cousin marriages with both mother and father …bringing the resessive gene to the child. In all known cases the girl died in puberty when she started to menstrate.
No. Unfortunately, it's in your genes. It's just like how you can't grow out of blue eyes or blonde hair. Yet, you can get replacement gene therapy to lessen bleeding episodes….
Hemophilia is normally passed down from mother to son through the X chromosome. Females have two X chromosomes whereas males only have one. When a boy is born, he takes one X …chromosome from his mother and one Y chromosome from his father. Example One: Mother(Carrier)+Father(Non-Affected)=50% chance of their son acquiring the disorder and 50% chance of their daughter being a carrier. Example Two: Mother(Non-Affected)+Father(Hemophiliac)=All sons will be non-affected and all daughters will be carriers. It is also important to note that approximately 1/3 of the cases of genetic hemophilia are results of random mutations where no prior family history existed. Of course, these new cases can pass the mutations on to their children as well.

No, hemophilia is something you are born with from the imperfect genes of your parentage.
In Conditions and Diseases
No, at least not with the current knowledge in genetic therapyperhaps.

Probably one of the most famous heamophiliacs was Tsar Nicolas II'sson Alexei Nikolaevich as well as his mother Alexandra . Another famous person, was Queen Victoria
It is a disease where the blood does not clot. Victims bruiseeasily from very mild touch and can easily bleed to death fromminor cuts or scrapes.
