Webinar: Connecting Protein S and Venous Thromboembolism

Healthcare News | 2013-08-22


Protein S deficiency has long been recognized as a leading risk factor for

developing venous thromboembolism. Manufactured in the liver, protein S is an endogenous anticoagulant required as a cofactor for the protein C pathway, an important inhibitor system in coagulation. Whether contracted congenitally or acquired secondarily to numerous underlying disorders or therapies, this deficiency can potentially lead to venous thrombosis and life-threatening complications such as pulmonary embolism.

Join our complimentary webinar, “Identifying Protein S Deficiency as a Risk Factor for Venous Thromboembolism,” to learn more about how the Siemens INNOVANCE® Free PS Ag Assay1 augments thrombophilia screening efforts by providing easy, specific, and stable protein S antigen testing.
