OBJECTIVES An exonic polymorphism (Y402H) in the complement factor H (CFH) gene, which locates within the binding sites for heparin and C-reactive protein, has recently been described and hypothesized to play an important role in atherothrombosis. METHODS We, therefore, evaluated the CFH genetic variant Y402H amongst 685 Caucasian individuals who subsequently developed arterial or venous thrombotic event (incident myocardial infarction (MI), ischaemic stroke, or venous thromboembolism) and… CONTINUE READING
