OBJECTIVE Inflammatory conditions provoke essential processes in the human vascular system. It leads to the formation of ultralarge von Willebrand factor (VWF) fibers, which are immobilized on the endothelial cell surface and transform to highly adhesive strings under shear conditions. Furthermore, leukocytes release a meshwork of DNA (neutrophil… CONTINUE READING
