Meta-analysis of association between insertion/deletion polymorphism of the Angiotensin I-converting enzyme gene and venous thromboembolism.

Abstract

An insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene accounts for 50% of the interindividual serum ACE level variation. Because the renin-angiotensin system regulates coagulation and vasoconstriction, it could have a role in venous thromboembolism (VTE). Several studies have evaluated the relationship between ACE I/D… (More)
