In studying the stability of fibrin clots formed from native plasma, in 1% monochloroacetic acid, it has been found that at a given temperature there is a variation among individuals. Clots formed from normal young adult females are more stable than those from males, but those formed from females taking contraceptive medication are significantly more stable than those of males or females not on contraceptives. Increased fibrin clot stability in females on oral contraceptive medication is not… Expand

Fibrin formation and dissolution in women receiving oral contraceptive drugs.
TLDR
While oral contraceptive-induced depression of antithrombin III could possibly predispose to thrombosis by diminishing the inhibition of the serine protease clotting factors, the concomitant decreased level of plasmin inhibition might balance the system by favoring thrombolysis as well as the digestion and inactivation of certain clotting Factors by plasmine.

A rapid quantitative assay method for fibrin-stabilizing factor (factor XIII).
TLDR
FSF values obtained by this method in a series of normal adults and newborns had 87 and 84% correlation with results obtained by the dansyl cadaverine method of Lorand and co-workers. Expand
The interaction of platelets with a tritium-labelled heparin.
TLDR
It is concluded that uptake of heparin by platelets may involve a combination of several constituents: 1) platelet factor 4, 2) surface membranes, and 3) other granules or cytoplasmic components. Expand

TLDR
The authors believe that the changes found in the circulating blood in association with the use of gestagens does not predispose to thrombosis and does stress that changes in the vessel wall are of significant importance in the causation of clinical thromBosis. Expand

Relation between oral contraceptive hormones and blood clotting
TLDR
Oral contraception with conventional oestrogen/progestogen preparations produces raised levels of clotting factors and increased platelet aggregation, which do not appear a desirable side effect and may be responsible for the increased risk of thrombosis. Expand
EFFECTS OF ENOVID ON BLOOD CLOTTING FACTORS.
TLDR
Cyclic medication with Enovid determines significant increases in some of the blood clotting factors that are also elevated during normal pregnancy, namely factors VII–X “complex,” VII “specific” and fibrinogen, which tends to maintain the homeostatic equilibrium. Expand
The Mechanism of Enhanced Streptokinase‐Induced Clot Lysis following In‐vitro Factor‐XIII Inactivation
TLDR
Incorporation of small amounts (40 units) of streptokinase (SK) into a clot formed from plasma after in vitro inactivation of Factor XIII, resulted in marked shortening of clot lysis times compared to controls without Factor XIII inactivation. Expand
Fibrin Clots
TLDR
It has been established that both a thermolabile component of the serum and calcium ions are needed to form a urea-insoluble clot from the purified fibrinogen–thrombin system. Expand

Fibrin clots, freshly formed from recalcified plasma, displayed high susceptibility to lysis by the plasminogen activator, urokinase, or the proteolytic enzymes, plasmin or trypsin; later these clotsExpand

TLDR
It is possible that changes toward hypercoagulability occurred in Factor II, Factor X, and fibrinolysin systems, thus explaining the lack of thromboembolic episodes in the treated group. Expand

TLDR
The combined results showed an excess of cases of thromboembolism at the highest dose of oestrogen, which is of special interest since previous studies have failed to provide clear evidence of a relationship between oral contraceptives and this condition. Expand
