BACKGROUND Haptides are a family of short peptides homologous to C-termini sequences of fibrinogen chains β and γ (haptides Cβ and preCγ, respectively) which were previously shown to penetrate and bind cells. OBJECTIVES This work investigates the systemic effect of the haptides with possible clinical implications. METHODS Intra-arterial monitoring in… CONTINUE READING
