We recently studied the effect of clot retraction on the antifibrinolytic effect of FXIII [47], stimulated by preliminary data from Sakata and Aoki pointing to the potential importance of clot retraction [29].
The patients in this study had signs of skin and mucosal haemorrhage such as bruising easily, epistaxis and menometrorrhagia.3 In this study, PF3 availability, bleeding time and clot retraction was normal in patients with BTM.3 After the re-suspension of the platelets of patients with BTM in normal plasma, reduced aggregation response did not resolve.
In addition, the fibrin formed due to the clot retraction may stimulate the lysis activity [11].
Increasing altitude is associated with elevated factor 10-12 levels, shortened prothrombin time, and impairment of clot retraction. An another study showed that mean platelet volume (MPV) was increased in ACS patients living at high altitudes, and elevated MPV was claimed to be one of the causes underlying the thrombogenic environment induced by the high altitude.

In this work, we demonstrated antiplatelet properties of lavender oil towards platelet aggregation induced by arachidonic acid, U46619, collagen and ADP (I[C.sub.50] = 51, 84, 191 and 640 [micro]g/ml, respectively) on guinea-pig platelet rich plasma (PRP) and its ability to destabilize clot retraction (I[C.sub.50] = 149 [micro]g/ml) induced by thrombin on rat PRP.
