Dr. Klamroth is the Head of Internal Medicine, Angiology and Coagulation Disorders and Director of the Comprehensive Care Haemophilia Treatment Center and the Haemostasis and Thrombosis Unit at the Vivantes Clinic in Friedrichshain in Berlin, Germany. He is also the Head of the European Association of Haemophilia and Allied Disorders. He has worked in haemophilia for 25 years and saw his first patient in 1996.
At the Center, he works with adults and children with haemophilia and is involved in several clinical studies. The current standard of treatment for haemophilia at his clinic is prophylaxis independent of age, starting very early in childhood at 10 to 12 months, with the goal to prevent bleeding and atrophy in the future.5 These treatments have made it possible for those with haemophilia to be active in their community, which Dr. Klamroth said wasn’t even possible just 25 years ago.
