Genetic variation associated with plasma von Willebrand factor levels and the risk of incident venous thrombosis.

Abstract

In a recent genome-wide association study, variants in 8 genes were associated with VWF level, a risk factor for venous thrombosis (VT). In an independent, population-based, case-control study of incident VT, we tested hypotheses that variants in these genes would be associated with risk. Cases were 656 women who experienced an incident VT, and controls… (More)
