Boletín médico del Hospital Infantil de México

Abstract

A new one-stage prothrombin assay using Taipan venom is presented here. Taipan venom converts prothrombin to thrombin in the absence of all coagulation factors known up to the date. The prothrombin concentration in normal adults varied from 64.0% to 159.0% with a mean of 100.64% plus or minus 24.83%.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.
