Activated Protein C Resistance
(APC Resistance)

A hemostatic disorder characterized by a poor anticoagulant response to activated protein c (APC). The activated form of Factor V (factor va) is more slowly degraded by activated protein c. Factor V Leiden mutation (R506Q) is the most common cause of APC resistance.
