Whilst increased plasma beta-thromboglobulin (beta TG), platelet factor 4 and thrombospondin levels are regarded as reflecting the release reaction of platelets, tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) levels represent endothelial release reaction and/or damage. In this study including 12 smokers and 9 nonsmokers, we investigated the acute and chronic effect of smoking on these parameters and antithrombin III, protein S and fibrinogen, as well… CONTINUE READING
