For information purposes only
This discussion space is designed for exchanging experiences, sharing views and building the community of people with haemophilia who have inhibitors, their family members and caregivers.
Any message in this discussion space must be treated as informative and as a strictly personal view, and in no circumstances should be perceived as medical advice.

No diagnostic conversations
Experience of your condition is unique and these experiences are individual to every patient. It should be noted and indicated that the experiences and stories shared in this forum are solely individual and descriptive of the user’s own case. No diagnoses should be offered in the discussions and personal experiences should not be generalized.
No treatment recommendation
Treatment is strictly an individual domain and is provided by the treating doctor only. The treatment choices of other patients must be respected and special care should be paid when discussing specific treatment products due to several reasons, e.g. accessibility to treatment and treatment product variability between European countries; the treatment is individual and should be supervised by the treating doctor; no preference should be indicated for a specific product or category of products in this forum.
No form of advertisement
No form of advertisement is allowed in this forum. This applies not only to treatment, but also to clinical trials, registries, doctors, or any type of care facilities. Any proposal for services is forbidden.
