Platelet dense granule release assays are recommended for diagnosing platelet function disorders and are commonly performed by Lumi-Aggregometer (Chrono-Log, Havertown, PA) assays of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) release. We conducted a prospective cohort study of people tested for ATP release defects to assess bleeding symptoms. Reduced release, with 1 or more agonists, was more common among patients with bleeding disorders than among healthy control subjects (P < .001). The respective… CONTINUE READING
