Haemophilia A trial results 'mind-blowing' - BBC News

British doctors say they have achieved "mind-blowing" results in an attempt to rid people of haemophilia A.

Patients are born with a genetic defect that means they do not produce a protein needed to stop bleeding.

Thirteen patients given the gene therapy at Barts Health NHS Trust are now off treatment with 11 producing near-normal levels of the protein.
