World Bleeding Disorder Awareness Day Significance

Haemophilia was first discovered in the 10th century, when people started to take a serious interest, especially in males, who after minor injuries due to bleeding died. At that time this disease was known as Abulcasis. But, due to limited technology, it was not cured. Dr. John Conrad Otto of Philadelphia in 1803 began to study people called “bleeders” and said that it is a hereditary illness that passes on to males by their mothers. In 1937, hemophilia genetic disorder was divided into two types: A and B. But no proper treatment was invented till that time. April 2021 Holidays Calendar With Festivals & Events.
