TNK-tissue plasminogen activator in acute myocardial infarction. Results of the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) 10A dose-ranging trial.


BACKGROUND TNK-tissue plasminogen activator (TNK-TPA) is a genetically engineered variant of TPA, which in experimental models has a slower plasma clearance and greater fibrin specificity and is 80-fold more resistant to plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 than alteplase TPA. METHODS AND RESULTS The thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) 10A trial was… (More)
