In brief: Control is achieved

Not a cure, but control of bleeding episodes is achieved by periodic infusion of purified, genetically engineered, human factor viii, defects of which cause the most common form of hemophilia.

In brief: Not yet

As previously mentioned, supportive care is all that can be offered currently.
I would guess that within the next 5 years clinical trials will start using gene therapy to attempt to cure hemophilia.
