AFVLA Position Statements on Issues

Occasionally, the American Factor V Leiden Association will publish Position Statements on issues and topics of importance relating to Factor V Leiden. Some of these statements will stem from AFVLA Initiatives that the association has considered and researched extensively. The findings and conclusions drawn from that research become Position Statements. Other Position Statements are issued in response to research and recommendations from other related organizations.


It is the hope that the medical and scientific community and governing bodies will consider and adopt the positions endorsed by the AFVLA. The ultimate goal is to issue and encourage the implementation of new practices and guidelines that will help keep you and your family safe from the complications brought on by Factor V Leiden.


Please visit the AFVLA Initiatives page to see a description of the initiatives the association is currently investigating and check back here often for new Position Statements.
