A first clinical evaluation has been made of the performance of a newly devised immunofluorometric assay for measuring plasma concentrations of activated protein C (APC) in complex with protein C inhibitor (PCI). The method was compared with testing for other markers of hypercoagulability in a case-control study comprising 123 patients with clinical suspicion of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The diagnosis was confirmed by ascending phlebography, and the thrombotic burden estimated with a newly… CONTINUE READING
