Free-TFPI (f-TFPI) presents high anticoagulant activity and its plasma level correlates with unfavorable outcomes in unstable angina. Total TFPI (t-TFPI) represents mainly the lipid-bound form which seems to have a poor anticoagulant activity. Until now, it is not known whether the variations of f-TFPI plasma levels are determined by environmental factors. The aim of our study was to evaluate the influence of cardiovascular risk factors on plasma levels of f-TFPI and relations with other… CONTINUE READING
