Research and Treatment Centers

CDC has provided support to the Thrombosis and Hemostasis Centers Research and Prevention Network to foster collaborative epidemiologic research. This research was designed to identify risk factors for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (DVT/PE) among the U.S. population. Findings will ultimately be used to improve the diagnosis and treatment of people who have these conditions. CDC funded five centers, which collect data from patients of all ages and races while providing services to patients who have DVT/PE and other clotting disorders. These centers have multidisciplinary teams of healthcare specialists and state-of-the art clinical research programs that provide outreach and education programs for patients. Below is the contact information for these centers.

Key Findings: CDC Study Finds People with Blood Clots at Risk of Permanent Work-Related Disability
CDC collaborated on a study of individuals who had participated in two previous Norwegian studies, looking at each participant’s risk of a first-time VTE during 1994-2008. The new study looked at whether or not participants who previously developed a first-time VTE subsequently received a disability pension due to work-related disability.
