Abstract

Objectives. Newborns are susceptible to thrombosis secondary to the immature hemostatic system and maternal and fetal complications. The contribution of activated protein C resistance (APCR) to thrombosis tendency has not yet been established. This study was conducted to investigate the effects of maternal and fetal complications on APCR levels.
