Why should you request this service?

What is the purpose of this analysis?

>
  • To indicate your risk of developing venous thrombosis and thus give you the possibility of preventing its development by modifying the environmental component (eating habits, administration of anticoagulants, exercise...).

  • To help you prevent the risk of thrombosis on your family members.

Should you do it?

>
  • You have a family history of venous thrombosis, arterial thrombosis, embolism, etc.

  • You don’t have any family history:

    • You are taking oral contraceptives.
    • You have had thrombosis during your pregnancy.
    • You have had several abortions.
    • You have children with NTD (neural tube defect).
    • You are pregnant and have IUGR, (intrauterine growth restriction) thrombophlebitis or placental thrombosis.
    • You face prolonged immobility (prolonged postoperative and lower limb pathologies).
    • You have varicose veins.

      Increased risk Same risk as random people
  • Sensitivity and Specificity>

      The analysis of this gene is carried out using the PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) technique. Moreover, the results are studied by direct sequencing and subsequent capillary electrophoresis. These molecular biology techniques are commonly used in the field of molecular genetics and exhibit high sensitivity and specificity when using specific primers for each analyzed polymorphism. The reliability of our genetic studies is close to 100%, we apply quality processes certified by competent national and international organizations.
