Von Willebrand Factor is a blood clotting protein.
If there is a defect or deficiency of Von Willebrand Factor, it results in Von Willebrand Disease.
Von Willebrand Factor is a protein critical to the initial stages of blood clotting. This glue-like protein, produced by the cells that line the blood vessel walls, interacts with blood cells called platelets to form a plug which prevents the blood from flowing at the site of injury. People with von Willebrand Disease are unable to make this plug because they do not have enough von Willebrand Factor or their factor is abnormal.
Von Willebrand Disease is a genetic disease that can be inherited from either parent. It affects males and females equally.
A man or woman with Von Willebrand Disease has a 50% chance of passing the gene on to his or her child.
