Abstract

Abstract In our study exposure to standardized acute mental stress in healthy volunteers caused similar alterations in fibrinolysis, although less pronounced, as physical exercise and adrenaline infusion. Thus, tPA:Ag and activity were significantly increased and PAI-1 activity had a tendency to decrease in response to mental stress. However, the effects of long-term mental stress on fibrinolysis in healthy persons and patients are, so far, not known.
