Bleeding diathesis nurses of our Division of Hematology, Ana-Patricia Batista Mesquita Sauvage and Chrystelle Chirlias bring precious clinical support for the categorization, investigation and follow-up of the patients with bleeding diathesis (hemophilia, thrombocytopathies,…) enrolled in the research projects.
We have a very fruitful collaboration with Dr. med. Montserrat Fraga Christinet and Prof. Dr. med. Darius Moradpour from the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CHUV), in order to investigate the clinical utility of thrombin generation in patients with liver cirrhosis.

The recently initiated collaboration with Dr. med. Mattia Rizzi, MD-PhD has the aim of identifying children with acute hematological malignancies at high risk of thrombotic or hemorrhagic events in order to implement an individually targeted prophylaxis.
