Procoagulant cellular activity and disseminated intravascular coagulation in acute non-lymphoid leukaemia.

Abstract

The procoagulant cellular activity (PCA) of intact and lysed leukaemic cells was evaluated at diagnosis in 23 patients with acute non-lymphoid leukaemia (ANLL). The leukaemic cells of all 13 patients having DIC feature (excess of fibrin monomers, serum FDP and plasma fibrino-peptide A) showed a significant (P less than 0.0001) increase of PCA, while a… (More)
