blood viscosity Gene Set

Dataset GAD Gene-Disease Associations
Category disease or phenotype associations
Type disease
Description The internal resistance of the BLOOD to shear forces. The in vitro measure of whole blood viscosity is of limited clinical utility because it bears little relationship to the actual viscosity within the circulation, but an increase in the viscosity of circulating blood can contribute to morbidity in patients suffering from disorders such as SICKLE CELL ANEMIA andPOLYCYTHEMIA.
