Abstract

Global coagulation assays (GCAs) may provide a more comprehensive individual hemostatic profiling. We aim to evaluate GCAs (thromboelastography, thrombin generation) in healthy controls, and correlate results with age, gender, lipid status, tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) and P-selectin. Blood samples were collected from healthy controls (> 18 years of age) not taking anticoagulation or antiplatelet agents and without known cardiovascular disease. Thromboelastography (TEG) was performed on citrated whole blood while calibrated automated thrombogram (CAT), P-selectin (endothelial marker) and TFPI (principle inhibitor of tissue factor-initiated coagulation) were performed on platelet-po..
