The generation of antibodies to therapeutic factors VIII or IX is a major problem in the management of haemophilia and places potential limitations on the application of gene therapy. We have investigated the administration of a non-depleting anti-CD4 antibody for modulation of the immune response to human recombinant coagulation factors VIII and IX. In mice given these clotting factors, co-administration of anti-CD4 antibody significantly reduced the appearance of factor-specific antibodies. These data provide evidence that the neutralizing antibody response to exogenous coagulation factors may be controllable if non-depleting anti-CD4 antibody is co-administered at the time of initial replacement therapy.
