Genetic variants that affect platelet function.

Abstract

PURPOSE OF REVIEW This review summarizes our current knowledge of common gene variants (polymorphisms) that have small individual effects on platelet function in humans, but can cumulatively lead to hyperreactive platelets and increase risk for negative outcomes in thrombotic disorders. RECENT FINDINGS Candidate gene association and genome-wide… (More)
