This thin female developed an impressively distended, nonacute abdomen within a 2-week period. Histology demonstrated a stage IV small cell carcinoma of the ovary.(More)
Molecules that induce tissue factor expression by responsive cells such as endothelial cells and monocytes may be important in the regulation of hemostasis and, perhaps, in mediating certain hemostatic disorders. A constituent of normal human plasma capable of inducing tissue factor activity in human endothelial cells and monocytes has been isolated and(More)
Normal human plasma contains procoagulant albumin (PC-Al), an anionic form of albumin that induces tissue factor (TF) activity in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) and monocytes. In this study, we investigated both the interactions between HUVEC and PC-Al and the mechanism by which PC-Al induces TF activity. Binding of PC-Al to HUVEC was(More)
