Abstract

Manipulating the bleeding/clotting system is a critical but expensive part of modern medicine, eg some people need blood thinners while others can bleed too much. Thrombin generation is the ideal overall test for the bleeding/clotting of blood, but current methods have major problems. We developed and patented a test that deals with most of the problems. This proposal will create an assay that is easy for doctors to perform without a specialised laboratory.
