The formation of a venous blood clot in the deep veins of the body is a common condition in the general population that is associated with a serious complication known as “post thrombotic syndrome”. Currently, there is no cure for the post thrombotic syndrome; therefore, prevention of this complication is very important.

As deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a thromboinflammatory disorder involving a blood clot in the deep veins of the leg, CLEC-2 could be a receptor of interest in DVT research.
