Human TNFα level increases in human blood after contact with PECs, which is attributed to xenoreactive antibody binding and subsequent complement activation. Human TNFα induces procoagulant changes in PECs with increased TF expression. This study suggests that human TNFα may be one of the mediators linking complement activation with procoagulant changes in the xenoendothelium.
