HIV Infection and Causes of Death in Patients with Hemophilia in Germany (Year 1999/2000 Survey)
Already in the late 1970s Professor Landbeck began to survey annually hemophiliacs living at that time in West Germany for causes of death and the prevalence of diseases. The early questionnaires used in the survey focused on basic data and were later expanded by additional information particularly about HIV infection and AIDS-related death. Since 1998 more specific data on hepatitis and antiretroviral therapies have been included. Future surveys will be strengthened by data derived from the German Hemophilia Registry that is currently being established on behalf of the GTH Hemophilia Commission.
