Abstract

The immunogenicity of therapeutic factor VIII (FVIII) in patients with haemophilia A remains a critical issue in patient management. This review describes the immunological processes involved in the activation of the immune system against FVIII, with a particular focus on the role of endocytic receptors for the recognition of FVIII by antigen-presenting cells.
