  • Cancer represents a major cause of overall mortality, second to cardiovascular disorders. Cancer patients frequently encounter hypercoagulable states, with recurrent thromboembolic events due to the impact of cancer cells and chemotherapy/radiotherapy on the coagulation cascade. The expression of highly procoagulant proteins have been implicated to involve in tumor cell-induced thrombin generation, leading to platelet activation and fibrin clot formation. These include binding of heparin to… CONTINUE READING
