Answer: Prior to 1985, there were no laws enacted within the U.S. to screen blood. As a result, many haemophilia patients who received untested and unscreened clotting factor prior to 1992 were at an extreme risk for contracting HIV and hepatitis C via these blood products. It is estimated that more than 50% of the haemophilia population, over 10,000 people, contracted HIV from the tainted blood supply in the United States alone. The main symptom of hemophilia is bleeding. Mild cases may go unnoticed until later in life, when they occur during surgery or after trauma. In more severe cases, serious bleeding may occur without any cause. Internal bleeding may occur anywhere. Bleeding into joints is common.A small percentage of people with hemophilia may die from severe bleeding.http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000537.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemophilia#Blood_contamination_issues
Answer: The disease hemophilia results in a lack of functional clotting proteins, the chemicals that form a scab when a person sustains a cut. If the blood is not able to clot properly a person could suffer exsanguination (death due to blood loss) from a minor cut or injury.

This is because the leukaemic cells in the bone marrow take over at the expense of the cells which produce platelets (megakaryocytes). They also affect the production of red blood cells (erythrocytes) leading to anaemia.
The first signs of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia in the blood are a low platelet count and a degree of anaemia along with abnormally immature white blood cells from the granulocyte (myeloid) line. The white blood count is not necessarily high.
