The fibrinolytic capacity of blood depends mainly on the amount of tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) activity and plasminogen activator inhibitor type-1 (PAI-1) activity. Previous studies linked high PAI activity or low t-PA activity with the development of atherosclerosis and thromboembolic diseases. Yet, there are conflicting reports in the… CONTINUE READING
