ISTH 2023 | Population-based prevalence and mutational landscape of von Willebrand disease

Von Willebrand disease (VWD) is an inherited bleeding disorder arising from mutation in the vW factor (VWF) gene. Omid Seidizadeh, MSc, PhD candidate, University of Milan, Milan, Italy, discusses a recent study which aimed to estimate population-based prevalence and explore the mutational burden of VWD. Mr Seidizadeh explains how this study used publicly available genome databases to estimate the disease prevalence, which is reported to be 10 times greater than previously estimated. This interview took place at the 31st Congress of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), held in Montréal, Canada.
