Elevated plasma levels of factor VIII (FVIII) and von Willebrand factor (vWF), two key molecules of the coagulation cascade, are well-established risk factors for venous thrombosis (VT) [1-3]. More recent evidence shows that these plasma hemostatic proteins are also risk factors for other cardiovascular diseases (CVD) [4-8]. The broader role of FVIII and vWF is further supported by studies showing that genetic factors modulating the variability of these proteins are also associated with CVD. These include single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at the BAI3 [9], LDLR [5, 10], VWF [4] and ABO [11] genes, the latter being associated with other quantitative risk factors for CVD [12, 13].
