FXIIIa-Crosslinkable Synthetic Macromers Improve Stiffness and Adhesion of Hemophilia B Blood Clots under Fibrinolytic Conditions comments

by Christian Kastrup Karen Chan
Hemophilia is a bleeding disorder that affects roughly 1 in 5000 live births. A form of this disease, hemophilia B, is caused by deficiencies of the clotting protein, factor IX FIX , which is part of the coagulation cascade that, when activated by vascular injury, generates fibrin and its crosslinker, factor XIIIa FXIIIa ...
