Fibrinopeptide A in acute leukemia: relationship of activation of blood coagulation to disease activity.

Abstract

Plasma fibrinopeptide A (FPA) levels were determined in 20 unselected adult patients with acute nonlymphocytic and lymphocytic leukemia. The mean FPA level in patients with active disease (15.0 ng/ml) was significantly higher than during clinical remission (2.4 ng/ml, p less than 0.01). Elevated FPA levels were observed in patients with all morphological… (More)
