Are Blood Clots Risks in Your Genes?

Today, October 13th, is World Thrombosis Day, where #KnowThrombosis and #KeepLifeFlowing alert us to the awareness needed to "know the risk and reduce the burden" of thrombosis and its health consequences. Thrombosis (blood clot) poses a myriad of life-threatening risks that, without education, are widely unknown in the general population. Articles like the one below detail the characterization, associated risks and preventative steps able to be taken to better prevent death and disability from thrombosis. Pharmacogenomics does and will continue to play a large part in the identification of ineffective drugs and at-risk patients, solidifying the science as an integral part of individualized patient care.
