Lipoprotein metabolism and thrombosis.

Abstract

Recent evidence suggests that long-chain saturated fatty acids (i.e. stearic acid), produced on lipolysis of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins in the interface of circulating remnant particles provide a contact surface that activates the contact system of coagulation and subsequently activates factor VII. Increased level of circulating activated factor VII is… (More)
