Available now with easy access are listings of known variants of factors VIII, IX and vWF at eahad-db.org. You can readily view a wealth of structural and clinical information about each variant which is free to use and will be of value to both clinicians and researchers. The ‘In Depth Mutation Analysis’ of each variant reveals the features of each mutation and predicts its consequences – included is a pictorial representation of the mutation site on the factor VIII molecule. In the very near future similar information will be available for factor VII and later factors X and XI. This project is under the direction of the EAHAD Working Party on Clotting Factor Variant Databases. We are keen to receive feedback and suggestions from users for improvements (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please visit the site and view the many features!
