Factor V gene G1691A mutation, prothrombin gene G20210A mutation, and MTHFR gene C677T mutation are not risk factors for pulmonary thromboembolism in Chinese population.


A mutation in coagulant factor V gene, a substitution in the 3' untranslated region of prothrombin gene, and a variant in 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene have been reported to be related to venous thromboembolism in Caucasians, but this relationship remains in debate in other populations. In this case-control study, we aimed to… (More)
