Description

Factor V Leiden Mutation Analysis tests are used to assess an individual’s health by determining if they have what is known as “activated protein C resistance” (also known as the Factor V Leiden mutation). Activated protein C is a protein in the blood which helps keep the clotting system from excessively clotting blood, as too much clotting can lead to a heart attack or stroke. The Factor V Leiden mutation is actually a genetic abnormality that renders activated protein C inactive, thus allowing blood clots in the blood vessels and increasing an individual’s risk for developing a life-threatening blood clot. This test is important because it can help identify individuals at risk for developing a blood clot before they experience any health problems associated with blood clots.
