In brief: Many and varied.

Depending on which hemophilia (bleeding disorder) you deal with, treatments can vary.
Fresh frozen plasma or FFP has factors 8 and 9 but needs plasma exchange at the hospital. Factor 8 and 9 concentrates can be given by injection at home. Cryoprecipitate has factor 8, vwf and fibrinogen, but may need several bags and is usually done for infants and small children. Aspirin is to be avoided.

If you have factor IX deficiency, by all means get into the new gene therapy study. In other hemophilias, the severity of the mutated gene and the willingness of society to pay (the economicxs is byzantine) will determine what treatment you end up getting. Good luck
