A few weeks ago, we were informed that my wife (28 years old) is affected by a 
genetic disease called APCR.

The only information we have about this disease are :

- it is a genetic disease apparently due to the mutation of gene

- it has been recently discovered (2 or 3 years ago)

- it is related to blood coagulation

- The effects are increased if the patient eats food containing a high 
  concentration in vitamin K

- Due to this disease, my wife has alrealy made 2 pulmonary embolisms 
  in 1 year.

Can someon provide us with more information about this problem, references 
in scientific litterature, known treatments, aso...

Thank you for all your answers.
