  Blood Coagulation
The platelets stimulate local activation of plasma coagulation factors, leading to generation of a fibrin clot that reinforces the platelet aggregate.
In this manner, 11 plasma coagulation factors were discovered: 6 in the "intrinsic" pathway (factors VIII, IX, XI, XII, prekallikrein, and high-molecular weight kininogen), 1 in the "extrinsic" pathway (factor VII), and 4 in the common pathway (factors II, V, X, and fibrinogen).
The structures of the protease zymogens involved in coagulation (i.e., factors II (prothrombin), VII, IX, X, XI, XII, and kallikrein) are shown in Fig.

The importance of the GPIIb-GPIIIa in platelet activation and coagulation is demonstrated by the use of antibodies that block this receptor as anti-coagulants (e.g.
In response to injury, the heparin is released and inhibits coagulation.
The coumarin drugs inhibit coagulation by inhibiting the vitamin K-dependent g-carboxylation reactions necessary to the function of thrombin, and factors VII, IX, and X as well as proteins C and S. These drugs act by inhibiting the reduction of the quinone derivatives of vitamin K to their active hydroquinone forms.

 Coagulation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The coagulation of human blood is a fairly complex process by which liquid blood becomes solid clots.
The coagulation cascade of secondary hemostasis is traditionally divided into three parts: the final common pathway, the intrinsic pathway (abnormal in) and the extrinsic pathway.
If a coagulation factor is part of the intrinsic or extrinsic pathway, a deficiency of that factor will affect only one of the tests: thus hemophilia A, a deficiency of factor VIII, which is part of the intrinsic pathway, results in an abnormally prolonged PT test but a normal PTT test.

 Disseminated intravascular coagulation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a pathological process in the body where the blood starts to coagulate throughout the whole body.
This depletes the body of its platelets and coagulation factors, and there is a paradoxically increased risk of haemorrhage.
Activated Protein C (APC) deactivates clotting factors V and VIII, and the presumed mechanism of action of drotrecogin is the cessation of the intravascular coagulation.

In a normal individual, coagulation is initiated within 20 seconds after an injury occurs to the blood vessel damaging the endothelial cells.
Contrary to popular belief, coagulation from a cut on the skin is not initiated by air or drying out, but by platelets adhering to and activated by collagen in the blood vessel endothelium.

 Dugout coagulation
Coagulation is the process of adding chemicals to water to make dissolved and suspended particles bind together (coagulate) and form larger particles (flocculant) that settle out of the water.
A boat was moored in the dugout, and a 10 or 15 hp boat motor was used to circulate the water and to mix the chemicals throughout the water.
During the first one to two months after coagulation with aluminum sulphate, the aluminum concentration in the water should be monitored as a short term increase usually occurs which may exceed the recommended levels for drinking water, and could harm aquatic life.

 eMedicine - Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation : Article by Mary A Furlong, MD
DIC is a pathophysiologic term describing a continuum of events that occur in the coagulation pathway in association with a variety of disease states.
Pathophysiology: The pathophysiology of DIC involves the initiation of coagulation via endothelial injury or tissue injury and the subsequent release of procoagulant material in the form of cytokines and tissue factors.

 Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation - WSAVA 2002
DIC, previously called consumptive coagulopathy or defibrination syndrome, is a complex syndrome in which excessive intravascular coagulation leads to multiple-organ microthrombosis (multiple organ failure-MOF) and paradoxical bleeding caused by the inactivation or excessive consumption of platelets and clotting factors secondary to enhanced fibrinolysis.
During this excessive intravascular coagulation, platelets are consumed in large quantities, leading to thrombocytopenia.
As mentioned previously, heparin is a cofactor for AT III and therefore is not effective in preventing the activation of coagulation unless there is sufficient AT III activity in the plasma.
