Study of Biomarkers in Hemophilic Arthropathy

Clinical Trial Title

Expression of biomarkers in hemophilic arthropathy: Repository of surgical tissue samples and biomarkers in patients with hemophilia.

Clinical Trial Protocol Description:

Evaluating long term changes in molecules in hemophilia joints.

  1. Approximately two teaspoons (10 ml) of blood drawn from the arm.
  2. One to two teaspoons (5-10 ml) of synovial fluid drawn from the joint right before starting your regular surgical procedure. Synovial fluid is a thick, sticky lubricant present in the joint space between bones.
  3. Three to four small (2-3 mm / 0.08-0.12 inches) synovial tissue samples taken before the removal of scar tissue in the joint as part of the management in the case of a hemophilic joint or fixing the tear in subjects with joint trauma.
