April 17, 2017  a leading biotechnology company focused on serving individuals with rare diseases, joins the global bleeding disorders community in honoring the 28th annual World Hemophilia Day (WHD).[1] On this day, Shire highlights initial findings from its estimate of the Global Annual Bleed Rate (GABR), which shows a bleeding episode occurs every three to 15 seconds worldwide, more than three times current global estimates.[2] These findings build on existing data from the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH), which show only 25 percent of individuals living with hemophilia worldwide receive proper diagnosis and care, only 8 percent of which receive prophylaxis or regular treatment to prevent bleeds.[3],[4] This research reinforces Shire’s ongoing commitment to innovative data collection to improve global standards of care for individuals living with rare bleeding disorders.


“As the global leader in hematology, we are committed to efforts, such as estimating the GABR, that improve our understanding of the global landscape for hemophilia and the true experience of those living with this debilitating bleeding disorder,” said Leonard Valentino, M.D., Global Head of Hematology Medical Affairs, Shire.


Shire developed the GABR in collaboration with renowned hemophilia institutions, including WFH. Our shared aim is to identify regions of the world with the greatest need for improved diagnosis and care for hemophilia patients. Together, we created a literature-based model to estimate the GABR at both country and global levels. A full report of the GABR model is expected to be published later in 2017.[2]


“Shire is proud to support the global hemophilia community in honoring World Hemophilia Day,” continued Valentino. “On this day and every day, Shire is dedicated to supporting hemophilia patients through advancing early diagnosis, prophylaxis, individualized treatment options and innovative research and development efforts.”
