The aim of this thesis was to study hemostatic and genetic risk factors of cardiovascular disease.
To improve our understanding of how hemostatic factors are related to cardiovascular disease we studied the genetic epidemiology of these factors using several novel approaches.
For ADAMTS13 we also studied associations with cardiovascular risk factors, given that these associations remain largely unexplored for this new marker.
