Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this issue of the Journal, El-Galaly and colleagues (1) report on the interactions of two genetic risk factors (non-O blood group and Factor V Leiden) for venous thromboembolism (VTE) and two lifestyle risk factors (tobacco-smoking and obesity), using data from a large national prospective study in Denmark. They observed positive interactions of non-O blood group with Factor V Leiden, and with heavy smoking, but not with severe obesity. This report extends our knowledge on interactive risk factors for VTE, and highlights the need for further large (including prospective) studies and meta-analyses, to provide scientists, clinicians and their patients with reliable information. © 2012 International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis.
