Several coagulation proteins have been implicated as possible risk factors for the development of atherosclerotic diseases, among which are factor VIII and von Willebrand factor.
As part of the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study, a prospective study designed to assess risk factors for the development of atherosclerotic diseases, baseline measurements of factor VIII and von Willebrand factor (vWF) were performed to determine their relationship to the development of atherosclerosis.
We herein report the associations of factor VIII and vWF with constitutional, lifestyle, and biochemical factors.
Factor VIII and vWF were strongly correlated with each other (r=0.73), and, therefore, had similar associations with risk factors.
