Fibrinogen is a protein of liver origin whose role is to promote blood clotting following a vascular injury. Produced at the end of the coagulation cascade, fibrinogen is converted into fibrin which, forming a network that ""traps"" the platelets, forms the clot that puts an end to blood loss. The congenital absence of fibrinogen or afibrinogenemia leads to the onset of hemorrhagic events of variable extent, even following minimal trauma.
This panel is indicated for those who experience signs and symptoms of congenital fibrinogen deficiency, such as bleeding gums, recurrent miscarriages, hematomas and hemarthrosis, or for those with a positive family history of this hematological condition.
The analysis takes into consideration the mutation of germline DNA, it investigates SNP and Indel mutations up to 150 bp.
