Self-reported Adherence Fails to Line Up With Objective Measures in Hemophilia

Key clinical point: Substantial discrepancies may exist between objective and subjective measures of adherence to prophylactic therapy in patients with hemophilia.

Major finding: No significant correlation between the objective categorization of adherence and self-perceived extent of adherence was found (correlation coefficient, 0.10; P = .61).

Study details: A cross-sectional study of 29 male patients with hemophilia.

Disclosures: No funding sources were reported. One coauthor reported providing consultancy services for manufacturers of therapies for hemophilia. The others reported no conflicts of interest.
