The frequency of factor V Leiden and concomitance of factor V Leiden with prothrombin G20210A mutation and methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase C677T gene mutation in healthy population of Denizli, Aegean region of Turkey.

Factor V Leiden causing activated protein C resistance is the most common inherited form of thrombophilia leading to thrombosis. Its frequency shows great ethnic and geographic variations. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of FV Leiden and coinheritance of FV Leiden with two other frequent hereditary thrombophilia causes, namely, prothrombin G20210A and methylene-tetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) C677T mutation in the Aegean region of Turkey. The study population consisted of 1030 (500 men and 530 women) apparently healthy subjects. Functional resistance to activated protein C (APC) was measured by using the test kit STA staclot APC-R ((Diagnostica Stago, Asnieres, France, Cat. No. 00721). In subjects with APC resistance, molecular analyses of FV Leiden and of prothrombin G20210A and MTHFR C677T mutation were performed by using FV-PTH-MTHFR StripA (Vienna Lab, Labordiagnostika GmbH, Austria) kit, which was based on hybridization of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplified DNA products with mutation-specific oligonucleotide probes. Functional APC resistance was present in 93 subjects (9%). FV Leiden mutation was found in 87 of 93 subjects with APC resistance by PCR method. The FV Leiden carrier frequency was found to be 8.4% (87/1030). Seventy-six individuals were heterozygous (7.3%), and 11 were homozygous (1.06%). Among the 87 subjects with FV Leiden mutation, 45 subjects had MTHFR C677T gene mutation (7 homozygous, 38 heterozygous) and 4 subjects had heterozygote prothrombin G20210A gene mutation. A combination of FV Leiden and prothrombin G20210A and MTHFR C677T gene mutation was detected in 3 subjects. The results indicate that FV Leiden prevalence is quite high and coexistence of FV Leiden with other hereditary causes of thrombosis such as prothrombin G20210A mutation and MTHFR enzyme defect is not rare in healthy population of Aegean region of Turkey.
