We have reported that the plasma levels of plasma fibrinopeptide A and plasminogen activator inhibitor activity increase in patients with unstable angina and acute myocardial infarction. Tissue factor (TF) is a low-molecular-weight glycoprotein that binds to and acts on essential cofactor VII, and the resulting complex activates factors IX and X, initiating the coagulation cascade. We measured plasma TF antigen levels in 21 patients with unstable angina (on admission and after treatment), 27… CONTINUE READING
