Role of elevated alpha2-macroglobulin revisited: results of a case-control study in children with symptomatic thromboembolism.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE alpha(2)-Macroglobulin (alpha2MG) is a broad-spectrum protease inhibitor that is known to neutralize alpha-thrombin, plasmin, and activated protein C, which suggests that it has anticoagulant as well as procoagulant properties. The present study was conducted to evaluate the role of alpha2MG in children with venous thromboembolism [VTE… (More)
