Abstract

One of the current methods used for measuring natural fibrinolytic activity in blood involves dilution of the blood with phosphate buffer. An adaptation of this method using a solution of sodium acetate as diluent is described. Evidence is given to show that dilute blood clots lyse not only because of the dissociation of an antiplasmin-plasmin complex, but also by virtue of a reduction of the intrinsic chloride ion concentration.
