Hematology Center of Excellence

Supporting patients living with a rare hematology condition

Orsini’s Hematology Center of Excellence launched in 2016 with our first program for paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria. Today we support multiple hematology programs across several rare conditions. Our dedicated Therapy Care Teams work with the physician’s office and insurance on a patient’s behalf so that our patients and their family have more time to focus on their treatment and quality of life. We are here to listen, provide counseling on treatment, including side-effect management, and assist with sourcing third-party financial assistance.

About Atypical Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (aHUS)

Atypical Hemolytic-uremic Syndrome (aHUS) is a disease characterized by low red blood cell count, low platelet count and inability to process and excrete waste products from the blood. Symptoms result from tiny blood clots that form in small blood vessels in the body which impede proper blood flow to various organs of the body, especially the kidneys. As a result, people with atypical hemolytic-uremic syndrome experience kidney damage and acute kidney failure that lead to end-stage renal disease in about half of all cases.

About Congenital Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (c-TTP)

Congenital thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (c-TTP) is a rare and inherited blood disorder characterized by deficient activity of the enzyme ADAMTS13. This leads to the formation of blood clots in small blood vessels throughout the body, causing thrombocytopenia (low platelet count) and other complications. The lack of properly functioning ADAMTS13 impairs the breakdown of a specific blood clotting factor, resulting in the formation of microclots. c-TTP’s symptoms include purpura, neurological abnormalities, and organ damage. This lifelong condition poses challenges in maintaining blood clotting balance.

About Hemophilia A

Hemophilia A, also called factor VIII deficiency or classic Hemophilia, is an X-linked genetic disorder caused by missing or defective factor VIII, a clotting protein.

About Hemophilia B

Hemophilia B, also known as Christmas disease or factor IX deficiency, is a rare, degenerative disease that occurs in approximately 1 in 25,000 male births. People with this condition are particularly vulnerable to bleeds in their joints, muscles, and internal organs, leading to pain, swelling, and joint damage. Hemophilia B can range from mild (factor IX levels between 5 and 40% of normal) to moderate (factor IX levels from 1 to 5% of normal) to severe (factor IX levels less than 1% of normal).

About Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH)

CHAPLE disease (also known as CD55 deficiency with hyperactivation of complement, angiopathic thrombosis, and protein losing enteropathy, or CD55-deficient protein-losing enteropathy) is an ultra-rare hereditary condition characterized by an inability to regulate complement activity because of mutations in the CD55 gene. In most patients, this leads to potentially life-threatening symptoms beginning in infancy, including abdominal pain, bloody diarrhea, vomiting, malnutrition, slow growth, and edema. There are fewer than 100 patients worldwide who are known to have CHAPLE disease.

About Venous Thromboembolism (VTE)

Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) is a blood clot that starts in a vein. It is an underdiagnosed and serious yet preventable medical condition. While VTE is rare in children, VTE in pediatrics is becoming a recognized cause of significant morbidity and mortality in children. Most children diagnosed with VTE have a serious underlying illness such as cancer, chronic total parenteral nutrition dependency, or congenital heart disease.
