The prevalence of HB in mainland China was lower than that of the worldwide. However, about 30%‐45% of patients with hemophilia B have a severe disease, which have a severe phenotype characterized by frequent spontaneous bleeding episodes that may result in chronic, debilitating arthropathy, and occasionally death.Hemophilia B is caused by a wide variety of heterogeneous and infrequent mutations in the FIX gene. The FIX gene (OMIM 300746) is located on the Xq27.1 and 34 kb in length, with 8 exons encoding a 2.8 kb mRNA, 1.4 kb of which are translated, and the protein is a vitamin K‐dependent serine protease released into plasma as a single glycoprotein of 415 amino acids. Regular infusion of FIX concentrates is the main management of hemophilia B. And gene therapy seemed to be an appealing alternative for hemophilia B according to recent clinical trials.
