Factor XI Deficiency Awareness Ribbon Color:

Red Awareness Ribbons for Factor XI Deficiency

Factor XI Deficiency is also known as:
• Haemophilia C
• Hemophilia C
• Plasma Thromboplastin Antecedent Deficiency
• PTA Deficiency
• Rosenthal Syndrome

What is Factor XI Deficiency?
Factor XI Deficiency is a rare genetic bleeding disorder caused by reduced levels and insufficient activity of a blood protein called Factor XI. Factor XI is a clotting factor. Clotting factors are specialized proteins that are essential for proper clotting, the process by which blood solidifies like glue to plug the site of a wound to stop bleeding. Individuals with Factor XI Deficiency do not bleed faster or more profusely than healthy individuals, but, because their blood clots poorly, they may have difficulty stopping the flow of blood from a deep or surgical wound. This may be referred to as prolonged bleeding or a prolonged bleeding episode. The severity of symptoms in Factor XI Deficiency are not clearly related to the blood Factor XI level. In most individuals, prolonged bleeding episodes only occur after surgery, dental procedures or trauma. Bleeding tendencies in Factor XI Deficiency are unpredictable and inconsistent, making the disorder difficult to manage in some cases.

Factor XII Deficiency

Factor XII Deficiency Awareness Ribbon Color:

Red Awareness Ribbons for Factor XII Deficiency

Factor XII Deficiency is also known as:
• F12 Deficiency
• HAF Deficiency
• Hageman Factor Deficiency
• Hageman Trait

What is Factor XII Deficiency?
Factor XII Deficiency is a rare genetic blood disorder that causes prolonged clotting of blood in a test tube without the presence of prolonged clinical bleeding tendencies. It is caused by a deficiency of the Factor XII (Hageman factor), a plasma protein. Specifically, Factor XII is a clotting factor. Clotting factors are specialized proteins that are essential for proper clotting, the process by which blood clumps together to plug the site of a wound to stop bleeding. Although it is thought that Factor XII is needed for proper blood clotting, when it is deficient, other blood clotting factors appear to compensate for its absence.

Factor XIII Deficiency is also known as:
• Congenital Factor XIII Deficiency
• Fibrin Stabilizing Factor Deficiency
• Inherited Factor XIII Deficiency

What is Factor XIII Deficiency?
Factor XIII Deficiency is a rare, genetic bleeding disorder characterized by deficiency of clotting Factor XIII. Clotting factors are specialized proteins that are essential for the blood to clot properly. Specifically, individuals with Factor XIII Deficiency form blood clots like normal, but these clots are unstable and often break down, resulting in prolonged, uncontrolled bleeding episodes. Factor XIII also affects other processes in the body and is known to play a role in proper wound healing and pregnancy.

Fibrolamellar Carcinoma is a rare form of cancer that affects the liver. Unlike most cancers of the liver, it occurs with greater frequency in adolescents and young adults who are otherwise healthy. There are often no symptoms or signs of the disorder for a long time. Symptoms that can develop include abdominal pain, unintended weight loss, and a general feeling of poor health.

Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD) is also known as:
• FMD

What is Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD)?
Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD) is a disease that causes one or more arteries in the body to have abnormal cell development in the artery wall. As a result, areas of narrowing, aneurysms, or tears may occur. If narrowing or a tear causes a decrease in blood flow through the artery, symptoms may result. FMD is most commonly found in the arteries that supply the kidneys with blood and the arteries called the carotid and vertebral arteries which are found in the neck and supply the brain with blood. Less commonly, FMD affects the arteries in the abdomen and extremities.
