(29,30) In turn, altered fibrinolytic capacity reflected by t-PA activity (22,23,30) and prolonged euglobulin clot lysis time (22) as well as low antithrombin III consumed in anticoagulant processes with severe atherosclerosis (22,23) may all prospectively be associated with CHD.
The rise in fibrinolytic activity seems to be related to both intensity and duration of an exercise session.[16] An increase in fibrinolytic activity has been shown by increased levels of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), decreased euglobulin lysis time, increased fibrin plate lysis, increased fibrin degradation products (FDPs), increased alpha-2 plasmin inhibitor-plasmin complexes, decreased plasminogen, and increased degradation of alpha chains of fibrinogen.
