Why is it important?

While exercise is widely believed to prevent atherothrombotic diseases, it occasionally causes sudden death. This exercise paradox may be due to the inadequate testing of the thrombotic and thrombolytic status. A recently developed shear-induced thrombosis/fibrinolysis test performed with non-anticoagulated blood samples allows the assessment of the thrombotic state of an individual both at rest and after exercise.


This sensitive and physiologically relevant test may help to solve the aforementioned exercise paradox.
