Additional Interpretation: The relative risk of venous thrombosis is increased approximately four to eight fold in individuals who are heterozygous for the Factor V Leiden allele and up to 80-fold in individuals who are homozygous for the Factor V Leiden allele as compared to individuals without the mutation. Although homozygotes have a higher thrombotic risk and tend to develop thrombosis at a younger age, the risk is much less than that associated with homozygous protein C or S deficiency.

Methodology: The test is performed utilizing real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the amplification of Factor V DNA recovered from clinical specimens and fluorogenic target-specific hybridization for the detection and genotyping of the amplified Factor V DNA.
