The Rate Of Blood Coagulation Is Determined Genetically – Part 2 of 3
So “We can even look toward testing new treatments that may speed up how the body fights infection or recovers from wounds”. The study findings were published online June 7 in Nature Genetics.
The researchers’ efforts focused on blood samples infatuated from 5000 American men and women. The samples were ranked according to platelet “stickiness” during clumping, and the scores were matched up against about 2,5 million conceivable genetic code changes in order to link the speed of platelet clumping with specific gene behavior.
