Abstract

A number of studies demostrated the influence of ABO blood group on plasma levels of Von Willebrand factor but the nature of this association is still largely unknown. In this paper we discussed the recent advances in understanding the mechanisms by which ABO blood group determines plasma VWF levels and their clinical impact.
