The Coagulation Factor II test measures the level of Factor II in the blood. This test is available at the IntroLab laboratory and helps diagnose conditions that affect blood clotting, including coagulation disorders.

What is Coagulation Factor II?

Coagulation Factor II, also known as prothrombin, is an essential protein in the blood clotting process. It plays a central role in coagulation, where it is converted into thrombin, an enzyme that converts fibrinogen into fibrin, the final product in the blood clotting process. Fibrin then forms a dense mesh-like material that creates a blood clot, stopping bleeding.

Factor II is produced in the liver, and its production requires vitamin K. A deficiency in vitamin K, either through poor diet or the use of certain medications, can lead to reduced production of Factor II and an increased risk of bleeding.

When and Why is Factor II Testing Performed?

This test is typically recommended when there is suspicion of a blood clotting disorder or if a patient experiences prolonged, unexplained bleeding or thrombosis. This test may also be necessary if symptoms suggest potential blood clotting issues, such as easy bruising, bleeding gums, or increased menstrual bleeding in women.

The test results can significantly impact the diagnosis and treatment of the patient. Abnormal levels of Factor II can indicate various health issues. For instance, low levels of Factor II may indicate a condition known as hypoprothrombinemia, which can lead to excessive bleeding. Conversely, high levels of Factor II can increase the risk of forming blood clots, a condition known as thrombosis.

Test Results

The results can be presented as a percentage of normal Factor II activity. Normal values typically range between 70% and 120% of normal activity, although this can vary. If the results fall outside this range, the doctor will discuss potential reasons for these abnormalities with the patient and outline possible next steps. Further testing may be necessary to determine the cause of the abnormal results.
