What is the effect of variant genes on AVM development in HHT

Natural genetic variation between individuals can influence the outcome of carrying an HHT mutation. Some gene variants may be protective while others may increase the risk of AVM or telangiectasis. By identifying the variant genes that alter risk of AVM may give clues to the molecular mechanisms of AVM formation and provide new drug targets
