This study is conducted in the United States of America (USA). The aim of this study is to investigate the at-home-administration of bypassing agents for treatment of bleeding episodes in patients with congenital haemophilia with inhibitors to factors VIII and IX. We are further investigating how bleeding episodes affect the quality of life of the patient and their family or caregivers.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Characterisation of dose and dosing intervals for each bleeding episode [ Time Frame: after 3-6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Effect of type of bleed on initial dose, dosing interval and total dose [ Time Frame: after 3-6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effect of initial dose and dosing interval on total dose, time to first perceived improvement, time to perceived bleed resolution [ Time Frame: after 3-6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effect of time to first dose on dosing interval and total dose [ Time Frame: after 3-6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Effect of bleeds and drug administration time on planned daily activities [ Time Frame: after 3-6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Relationship of dose and dosing intervals to reported SAEs [ Time Frame: after 3-6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
