Genetics

New genomic regions linked to common vascular disorder

Blood clotting in veins, a disorder called venous thromboembolism (VTE), is a common vascular disease like heart attack and stroke, but hasn't been as well studied. Genetics are known to be involved, but only about a dozen ...

Thrombus

A thrombus (Greek θρόμβος), or blood clot, is the final product of the blood coagulation step in hemostasis. It is achieved via the aggregation of platelets that form a platelet plug, and the activation of the humoral coagulation system (i.e. clotting factors).
