|Cardiovascular (CVD), Thrombophilia risk factors (8 mutations/polymorphisms)|
Atherosclerosis and venous thrombosis are the two major manifestations of CVD. Both are caused by complex interactions of environmental and genetic parameters. An unhealthy lifestyle in combination with certain genetic variants can contribute to atherosclerosis. Relevant genes include those involved in endothelial dysfunction, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and inflammation. Similarly, a combination of adverse influences (female hormone intake, immobilization, surgery or cancer) and variations in genes responsible for the coagulation system can lead to thrombosis. CVD are common, but in many cases they can be avoided. Testing for the genetic variations can greatly contribute to lowering the individual CVD risk. The best way for avoidance is a lifestyle that is in accordance with an individual's genetic predisposition.
