The NSAIDs limit or eliminate the aggregation and secretion responses to arachidonic acid and collagen. Thienopyridines suppress aggregation and secretion responses to ADP. The Accumetrics VerifyNow System (San Diego, CA) measures platelet activity by agglutination of ﬁbrinogen-coated microbeads. Response to aspirin therapy is determined using arachidonic acid as the test reagent; response to P2Y12 inhibitor treatment is determined using ADP as the test reagent; and response to GP IIb/ IIIa inhibitor treatment (abciximab, tiroﬁban, eptiﬁbatide) is determined using TRAP as the test reagent.
There are numerous plasma D-dimer immunoassays. Sensitivity varies depending on the avidity of the monoclonal anti-D-dimer and the detection method. The quantitative D-dimer assay is used to ruleout ischemic stroke, acute myocardial infarction, or venous thromboembolic disease in patients with low pretest probability, and is required for detecting and monitoring DIC. D-dimer assays have negative predictive values of 90–95 %. Chronic or acute inﬂammation is accompanied by elevated D-dimer concentrations.
