The NOSTRADAMUS study (ISRCTN07836779) was prematurely terminated due to low inclusion rates. There were several causes for this low inclusion: delay of approval by medical ethics committees, competition with industry-initiated intervention studies with a higher financial compensation, and the lack of study staff and allowance of expenses. We advise restraint with respect to testing for thrombophilia in patients with a first deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, as the benefit of this procedure has yet to be demonstrated
