Abstract

The relationship between cancer and coagulation disorders is widely accepted. Such disorders can contribute to the metastatic spreading of the primary tumor. Aim of our study was to evaluate the alterations of thrombin-antithrombin III complex (TAT) measured by an ELISA plasma assay in a population of 78 patients suffering from various gastrointestinal tumors. We found high levels of TAT in 68.6% of the patients. Our data show that assay of TAT plasma levels may be a useful test in detecting early coagulation disorders in cancer patients.
