AIMS This study evaluated the presence of genetic mutations in relation to thrombosis or atherosclerosis in elderly women. MAIN METHODS This is an observational study of 93 Japanese women with a mean age of 80.9 years recruited from outpatient clinics of Nagoya University and its related hospitals. Ten single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were studied. Each gene studied acts in or is related to either blood coagulation (factor V Leiden, prothrombin G20210A, factor XIII Val34Leu, factor VII… CONTINUE READING
