We quantitatively assayed the levels of cross-linked fibrin degradation products (D dimer) in plasma at 73 points in time in 32 patients with elevated fibrin/fibrinogen degradation products (FDP) in serum. The assay of FDP was performed on serum samples prepared in test tubes containing 5 U/ml thrombin (final concentration) by a method based on latex… CONTINUE READING
