Welcome to the ISTH-SSC VWF Online Database (VWFdb). Please be aware that many of the webpages will be undergoing more extensive revision over the next several months. If you experience any difficulties navigating around the new webpages please contact me and I will aim to promptly rectify the problem.

- Descriptions of the various VWD types.
- A variant registry providing searchable lists of mutations and polymorphisms located within and adjacent to VWF.
- Annotated reference sequences for VWF.
- Detailed guidelines on standard nomenclature.
- References for published mutation and polymorphism data.
- Useful resources for diagnostics/research laboratories investigating VWD.
- Useful figures, including example multimer gels and VWF protein structures.
