By Lijfering, Willem M Sprenger, Herman G; Georg, Rita R; van der Meulen, Piet A; van der Meer, Jan BACKGROUND: HIV-infected patients are at increased risk of venous and arterial thrombosis. We hypothesized that acquired thrombophilic abnormalities that could predispose to thrombosis are most pronounced in patients in advanced stages of HIV infection. METHODS: We included 109 consecutive HIV-infected patients in the study and tested them twice for currently known thrombophilic abnormalities...
