A Scientific Review on Clot Dissolving Activity of Cayenne Pepper

Sai Sri lakshmi G. et al. The work of fibrinolysis is to break up fibrin clots. The operator of fibrinolysis is plasmin, a glycoprotein with gram atomic weight (GMW) of 90,000. Beneath normal conditions, plasminogen is changed over to plasmin by tissue plasminogen activator (TPA). Actuation happens on the fibrin surface, in this way restricting […]

SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein S1 Induces Fibrin(ogen) Resistant to Fibrinolysis: Implications for Microclot Formation in COVID-19

Lize M. Grobbelaar et al. Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-Cov-2)-induced infection, the cause of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), is characterized by unprecedented clinical pathologies. One of the most important pathologies, is hypercoagulation and microclots in the lungs of patients. Here we study the effect of isolated SARS-CoV-2 spike protein S1 subunit as potential […]
