Prevalence of factor V Leiden in south Tunisian blood donors

Prevalence of factor V Leiden in south Tunisian blood donors

Journal of Thrombosis and Thrombolysis 32(1): 116-119

Venous thrombosis (VT) is a common disease with multifactorial pathogenesis. Factor V Leiden mutation (G1691A) (FVL) is the most common risk factor in venous thrombosis. The prevalence of FVL varies according to geography and ethnicity. Hence, in several countries there is a difference in the frequency of this mutation between the southern, central and north. In Tunisia, no data is available about prevalence of FVL mutation by geographical origin. For this reason, we sought the prevalence of FVL mutation in blood donor of south Tunisia population. FVL has been detected by APCR-test and confirmed by PCR-RFLP and sequencing. Two hundred fifty blood donors, different in age and sex were included in this study to determine the prevalence of FVL in blood donors. FVL mutation was found in 13.6% of the studied population. Thirty-one were heterozygous and three persons were homozygous with a rate of 12.4 and 1.2%, respectively. In conclusion, FVL mutation is very common in south Tunisian population.
