Answer

Other geographic ethnic differences were observed in the thrombosis incidence in 64 patients with classic PNH. [19] The investigators found that African Americans (n = 11) and Latin Americans (n = 8) had a higher risk or rate of thrombosis by Cox regression analysis and that this had an impact on length of survival compared with other patients (n = 45).
