A pronounced variation in VWF activity was also observed, although not significant according to the 24-h statistical model. To examine whether the diurnal pattern was related to changes in elimination or secretion, the ratio between (i) coagulation factor VIII and VWF and (ii) VWF propeptide and VWF was determined.
