Hemophiliacs are encouraged to receive physical therapy to help damaged joints and to exercise through non-contact sports such as swimming, bicycle riding, or walking, to avoid injury that may lead to bleeding.
Concern has also been raised about the possibility of hemophiliacs contracting a fatal slow virus infection of the brain (Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease) from blood products.
Gene therapy involves sophisticated methods of transferring new genes to hemophiliacs, correcting deficiencies or defects in the clotting mechanism.
