    Abstract

    Liver function was assessed in 38 Edinburgh haemophiliacs. Results before the introduction of NHS intermediate factor VIII concentrate from 1974 onwards were compared with values in 1979. Measurements of serum bile salts in 16 patients as well as conventional liver function tests gave useful evidence of deranged liver function. Deterioration over the five-year follow-up period was seen only in patients on home treatment using large amounts of factor VIII concentrate, and there was no association between cryoprecipitate usage and derangement of liver function.
