  1. Resource Description
    "Current Research Goals: To determine the role of contact activation in acute intraluminal thrombus propagation using synthetic vascular grafts in a primate model of thrombosis and hemostasis. If the functionality of the contact system enzyme complex (FXI/FXII/KK/HMWK) is relevant to the pathogenesis of thrombosis, a FXI inhibitor could become the first safe antithrombotic agent. To characterize the effects of endogenous protein C activation on acute arterial thrombogenesis and hemostasis using rationally engineered recombinant enzymes. A pharmacologically viable protein C activator could help utilize the body's own antithrombotic and antiinflammatory system similar to the way streptokinase and tPA became useful fibrinolysis activators."
