Plasma metalloproteinase is enhanced in the euglobulin fraction of breast and lung cancer patients.
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.
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.
Heart disease patients also take longer to dissolve clots when assessed by the same test done on the mice--the euglobulin clot lysis test (ECLT), says Klevay.
