A common genetic variation in the 3'-untranslated region of the prothrombin gene is associated with elevated plasma prothrombin levels and an increase in venous thrombosis.
An association was found between the presence of the 20210 A allele and elevated prothrombin levels and Elevated pro thirdrombin itself also was found to be a risk factor for venous thrombosis.
Mutation in blood coagulation factor V associated with resistance to activated protein C
It is demonstrated that the phenotype of APC resistance is associated with hetero-zygosity or homozygosity for a single point mutation in the factor V gene which predicts the synthesis of a factor V molecule that is not properly inactivated by APC.

This method allows the determination of the optimal pharmacological effects of anticoagulation, which can form a rational starting point for choosing the target levels in subsequent clinical trials.

Malignancies, prothrombotic mutations, and the risk of venous thrombosis.
Patients with cancer have a highly increased risk of venous thrombosis especially in the first few months after diagnosis and in the presence of distant metastases, which is a common complication in patients with cancer.

The intensity of anticoagulant therapy for patients with prosthetic heart valves is optimal when the INR is between 2.5 and 4.9, and the level at which thromboembolic complications are effectively prevented without excessive bleeding is recommended.

This data indicates that venous thrombosis in women under the age of 40 is more prone to bleeding than in men, and the incidence ofVT among women aged 40 and over is higher than in women aged 50 and over.
Venous thrombosis due to poor anticoagulant response to activated protein C: Leiden Thrombophilia Study
High risk of thrombosis in patients homozygous for factor V Leiden (activated protein C resistance)
It is assumed that most individuals homozygous for factor V Leiden will experience at least one thrombotic event in their lifetime, which implies that the increased risk of venousThrombosis with age becomes most pronounced in older patients, both for heterozygous and Homozygous individuals.
