This section of Hemobase, devoted to the Von Willebrand Disease, includes the first registry of mutations characterized after sequencing the VWF gene on Spanish VWD patients. General facts on VWD, the classification into subtypes, clinical features and diagnostic difficulties as well as biochemical and molecular characteristics of VWF are also included.


The entries in this registry are from the genetic analysis conducted at the Molecular Diagnostic Unit of the Banc de Sang i Teixits patients in various Spanish hospitals thanks to which it was possible the publication of this database. In this way, Hemobase expands its contents by adding von Willebrand's disease (the most common coagulopathy in the general population) to its register of mutations. It also contains carefully analyzed statistical data to provide a detailed overview of the contents of the database.

This registry has been financed in part with the project PI080385 of the Fondo de Investigación Sanitaria , Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.
