Research

Oxford Haemophilia and Thrombosis Centre is very active in clinical research, participating in many national and international studies.

If you have haemophilia, or other rare conditions, you are very likely to be asked to consider taking part in a study to help improve future treatment.

This could range from answering a few questions and/or a single blood test, through to trialling a new treatment over a number of years.

The choice to take part in research is entirely yours. If you prefer not to take part, your decision will be respected by your team and it will not affect the care you receive.

Research areas include:

  • novel non-factor haemophilia treatment
  • long-acting factor treatments
  • genetics of rare bleeding conditions
  • use of novel oral anticoagulants.
