The porosity, fiber dimension and architecture of fibrin gels formed in recalcified plasma on addition of thrombin are, within a certain range of thrombin concentrations, determined by the initial rate of fibrinogen activation. Furthermore, the initial network formed in this range creates the scaffold into which subsequently activated fibrinogen molecules are deposited. Change in thrombin concentration that occurs during gelation, as a result of indigenous thrombin generation in plasma, does… CONTINUE READING
