- Fibrin degradation product
Fibrin degradation product (FDPs) are components of the blood produced by
clotdegeneration.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 Plasminon 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 ] ]
