Factor V Leiden-Mutant Detection by Real Time PCR – Blood


The test detects the presence of factor V Leiden, specifically the factor V Leiden (G1691A Leiden) mutation in the blood using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The FV Leiden mutation leads to resistance of factor V degradation by activated protein C (APC), which increases the risk of blood clots.

The clinical use of the test is based on the following criteria: Patients who are suspected of having factor V Leiden disease (suspicion of fV Leiden disease) Patients with family history of factor V leiden disease (fV Leiden mutation) Patients who inherit a gene mutation that increases the risk of developing a blood clot (Venous thromboembolism )
