Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag av avhandlingen/ Summary of the thesis

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is the formation of a blood clot in the deep veins of the legs or in the lungs. Negatively charged procoagulant phospholipids (PPL) are vital to efficient coagulation activation and found expressed on the surface of extracellular vesicles and activated platelets.

In this thesis, we have developed a method to measure the effect of PPL on coagulation by modifying a FXa-dependent clotting assay. We further used the assay to investigate the association between plasma PPL activity and the risk of VTE in a population-based nested case-control study (Tromsø Study) and the STAtins Reduce Thrombophilia trial.

We observed an inverse association between PPL clotting time and the risk of future VTE in the nested case-control study, supporting an important role of PPL in the pathogenesis of VTE. Further, rosuvastatin treatment caused a substantial decrease in plasma PPL activity in subjects with a history of VTE, which may partly explain the previously reported reduced risk of VTE recurrence by statin treatment.
