Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Coagulation Factor V Leiden has not been detected in Japanese patients suffering from thromboses. The genetic background of Japanese thrombotic patients has never been systematically examined. We have performed a systematic investigation to ascertain genetic risk factors for thromboses in the Japanese population. According to our results, we recommend here useful gene analyses for Japanese thrombophilia.
