When cultured cells are exposed to plasma, the initial acceptors of unesterified cholesterol are small lipid-poor apolipoprotein A-I (apoA-I)–containing high density lipoproteins (HDLs) with pre-&bgr; electrophoretic mobility. These are converted by lecithin:cholesterol...
Thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI) is a recently described fibrinolysis inhibitor that circulates in plasma as a procarboxypeptidase and is converted into an active form during coagulation. The physiological relevance of TAFI is not known, but it might be involved in pathways...
In patients with unstable angina, intravenous heparin reduces thrombin activity but does not influence thrombin generation. Recombinant hirudin, a direct thrombin inhibitor, may be more effective in inhibiting both thrombin generation and activity. We measured the plasma levels of prothrombin...
Increased plasma fibrinogen concentration is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Fibrinogen is the main coagulation protein in plasma, a determinant of blood viscosity, and can act as a cofactor for platelet aggregation. In this study of middle-aged men and women, we examined...
