On fibrinolysis and malignancy

Subtitle:
studies of tissue plasminogen activators in carcinoma of the breast and in a murine tumour
Abstract:

Abnormalities of fibrinolysis have been recognised in malignancy. Studies have suggested that following the resection of colorectal tumours, increased fibrinolysis is associated with increased circulating malignant cells and a paradoxically prolonged survival. A "fibrin barrier" has been demonstrated histologically around some tumours including breast carcinomas. Certain tumours are able to degrade fibrin and this tissue fibrinolytic ...
