    venous thrombosis or in patients with asymptomatic carrier states without a
    thrombotic event, depending on the decisions made by the patient’s health care
    provider. Protein S deficiency has been divided into 3 alternative types based on the
    measurement of protein S antigen (presence of the protein in the bloodstream),
    functional protein S activity (ability of protein S to appropriately perform
    its function), the free protein S (or unbound protein S) and total protein S
    (includes free protein S and protein S that is bound to another protein in the
    blood): Protein S deficiency has been divided into 3 alternative types based on the
