Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate bone mineral density in adult subjects with hemophilia versus a comparator population without hemophilia (non-hemophilia age- and gender-matched database) by using the following diagnostic means: dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scanning, clinical scales, quality of life (QOL) scales and biomarkers. In addition to this osteoporosis study, hemophilic arthropathy of the knee with respect to loss of knee cartilage will also be explored by using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI substudy). No investigational product will be dispensed.

Arm Intervention/treatment
DXA scan + MRI Other: DXA scan + MRI
This is a non-drug study. Subjects will receive a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scan (in the main osteoporosis study) and will undergo magnetic resonance imaging (in the MRI substudy).

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Baseline Endpoint: Z-Score by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) at baseline [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
  2. Longitudinal Endpoint: Change in bone mineral density by DXA over 2 years [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
  3. Longitudinal Endpoint: Rate of loss of knee cartilage parameters over 2 years by MRI [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
