Abstract

EARLIER experiments of ours have shown that the organism regulates the coagulability of the blood by the inactivation of thrombin1,2. Many factors take part in the system causing the thrombin to disappear. We distinguish an adsorption effect and a fermentative inactivation process, and indicate the inactivating process by its reaction velocity factor.
