The experts then turned to the Biobank the United Kingdom, where he found genes compared with the genes of more than 392 thousand Britons of both sexes, to find a connection between the presence of these genes and increased formation of blood clots, heart failure or heart attack.

As a result, the researchers found that, in particular, the presence of JMJD1C gene can twice increase the risk of blood clots, and 7.8 times, heart failure.
