Some experts have demonstrated that genetic polymorphisms of platelet membrane glycoproteins (GPI1, GPIba, GPIIIa, and GPIV) may influence the efficacy of aspirin or platelet responsiveness, and genetic polymorphisms of the thromboxane A2 receptor (TBXA2R), platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase, and coagulation factor XIII were associated with platelet aggregation.
