What is the Thrombophilia Genetic test?
Hereditary Thrombophilia is responsible for more than half of the cases of thrombosis. It is a hereditary genetic disease caused by mutations in certain genes responsible for blood clotting.
Thrombophilia increases the risk for: acute myocardial heart attacks, complications during pregnancy, spontaneous miscarriages, pulmonary embolisms, strokes and deep vein thrombosis.
Pregnancy itself is a susceptibility factor for thrombosis. Additionally, hereditary thrombophilia is associated with an increased risk of gestational complications.
The thrombophilia genetic test analyzes more than 6,000 genetic variants, of the 23 genes involved in blood clotting.
The analysis also takes into account patient and family medical histories for risk assessment.
Advantages of the Thrombophilia test
A single test offers results of more than 600[ms2] variants in 23 genes associated with hereditary thrombophilia.
These detailed results allow a professional to make a comprehensive assessment of the potential risk, and to guide the most appropriate treatment and monitoring to achieve a full-term pregnancy.

- People with a family history of vein thrombosis.
