Professor Johnny Mahlangu will present the 2019 AJ Orenstein Memorial Lecture.

Many royal families in Europe were affected by an inherited bleeding disorder later known as haemophilia. All died before treatment was discovered. Today, with innovative medical technology, haemophilia has a well characterized clinical, genetic and epidemiological profile. This lecture will take the audiences through the most recent scientific development in the quest for treatment, prevention and ultimately cure of haemophilia.
