Warfarin is a commonly used anti-coagulant, but has a narrow therapeutic index and wide inter-individual and inter-ethnic variation in dose requirements. Several genetic and non-genetic factors have been identified that could influence warfarin dose requirements. However, current known predictive factors could only explain about 50-60% of warfarin dose variability. Inter-ethnic differences in genetic influences on warfarin dose requirements also exist. We hypothesize that genetic factors other than CYP2C9 and VKORC1 may influence warfarin dosing and serve to further optimize warfarin dosing.

Development of a library collection, including the determination and coordination of selection policy, assessment of needs of users and potential users, collection use studies, collection evaluation, identification of collection needs, selection of materials, planning for resource sharing, collection maintenance and weeding, and budgeting.
The taking of a blood sample to determine its character as a whole, to identify levels of its component cells, chemicals, gases, or other constituents, to perform pathological examination, etc.
A collection of blood outside the BLOOD VESSELS. Hematoma can be localized in an organ, space, or tissue.
Collection of air and blood in the pleural cavity.
Not an aneurysm but a well-defined collection of blood and CONNECTIVE TISSUE outside the wall of a blood vessel or the heart. It is the containment of a ruptured blood vessel or heart, such as sealing a rupture of the left ventricle. False aneurysm is formed by organized THROMBUS and HEMATOMA in surrounding tissue.
