Abstract.

Type 1 is the most frequent form of von Willebrand's disease, which is characterized by a quantitative partial deficiency of von Willebrand's factor. At present, only two mutations located in the D3 domain (C1149R, C1130F) have been reported to cause the classic type 1 variant. The 3467C>T transition that predicts the T1156M amino acid change was detected in seven patients from one family and was not found in 110 normal alleles screened. This is a candidate mutation to cause dominant type 1 variant with complete penetrance. On the other hand, neither of the two mutations mentioned above has been detected in the other 15 families studied with type 1 or possible type 1 patients.
