The fifth and final activity in the Clinical Advances in Gene Therapy for Hemophilia CME curriculum, Updates on Clinical Trials of Gene Therapy in Hemophilia, is a clinical article. Follow Thierry VandenDreissche (Brussels, Belgium) as he takes a deeper dive into the advances made during the recent early phase gene therapy clinical trials in hemophilia that have paved the way for the current pivotal phase 3 studies. The article examines the technical challenges faced by the initial approaches and the distinct solutions advanced for hemophilia A and B. It reviews the key results of the most promising studies to date and looks at the directions current research is taking for each. The questions that follow allow you to see how much you have learned about gene therapy clinical trials in hemophilia. Click the View Resource button to access the activity through the Medscape site.

This activity is part of the Clinical Advances in Gene Therapy for Hemophilia CME curriculum developed by the WFH in collaboration with the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF), the European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC), and Medscape Education. These five online activities provide introductory information on gene therapy in hemophilia. While clinicians can qualify for CME credits all learners can obtain a completion certificate, or explore the activity to enhance their knowledge of gene therapy in hemophilia.
