Fibrin degradation product


Fibrin degradation product

Fibrin degradation product (FDPs) are components of the blood produced by clot degeneration.cite journal |author=Gaffney PJ, Edgell T, Creighton-Kempsford LJ, Wheeler S, Tarelli E |title=Fibrin degradation product (FnDP) assays: analysis of standardization issues and target antigens in plasma |journal=Br. J. Haematol. |volume=90 |issue=1 |pages=187–94 |year=1995 |pmid=7786784 |doi=] These are produced by the action of Plasmin on deposited fibrin.

The levels of these FDPs rises after any thrombotic event.

It can be used to test for disseminated intravascular coagulation. [ [http://peir.path.uab.edu/coag/article_77.shtml Fibrin/Fibrinogen Degradation Products ] ]
