PhD project: Influence of (co-)medication on haemostatic biomarkers

Promotor: Prof dr. T. van Gelder

Co-promotors: dr. J. Versmissen; dr. M.J.H.A. Kruip

Several drugs, for example statins and antiplatelet drugs, can influence the risk of thrombosis in the individual patient but may also have an effect on haemostatic biomarkers. In this PhD project we present the diagnostic management of venous thromboembolism in different specific patient groups and investigate the influence of co-medication on haemostatic biomarkers. Also we present an overview of literature on the effect of statins and antiplatelet drugs on haemostatic biomarkers. The goal of this project is to improve the diagnostic strategies and therapeutic management in VTE for specific patient groups.
