This includes testing for FVL, PGM and protein S deficiency (grade D recommendation).
For example, a 2005 study conducted by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development's Maternal-Fetal Medicine Units Network identified 134 FVL mutation carriers among nearly 4,900 gravidas in their first trimester of pregnancy and found no increase in fetal loss, preeclampsia, abruption, or intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR).
This result differed from previous studies, which found no associated risk of TEs or an increased presence of FVLs among women at risk of breast cancer, but who did not actually have the disease.
Patients with antithrombin deficiency or homozygous FVL need life long anticoagulation after a first VTE event due to high recurrence risk.
As part of an effort to enhance biomedical research capabilities at a tribal college, we investigated the possible etiologic role of FVL among PE patients in this American Indian community.
Methods and Results: Using PCR and pyrosequencing, 581 subjects were genotyped for the MTHFR 677, MTHFR 1298, and FVL 1691 variants; 154 of the 581 subjects had plasma Hcy levels analyzed using the Abbott Diagnostics IMx immunoanalyzer.
Models FVL 16/48 and 16/60 form, fill, and seal large-particulate pumpable food products into individual pouches.
20) The FVL mutation results in an arginine-glutamine substitution at amino acid 506 (Arg506Gln), the site of the first molecular cleavage of factor Va by APC.
