Haemophilia A

Diagnostic Use

F8 gene analysis is indicated in male patients with abnormally low F8C levels. Since haemophilia A is an X-linked disorder, F8 analysis is generally not performed on females.

Cascade testing of relatives of patients with an identified F8 mutation is also offered. This is particularly useful for identifying carrier females, who may have ambiguous F8C levels.
