Abstract : The concentration of blood coagulation factors in Macaca irus, the cynomolgus monkey, was determined in an attempt to compare with man the ability of monkey plasma to correct deficiencies in selectively depleted clotting factor substrates. In addition, commonly used tests of hemostatic function were performed. The values for tests of the intrinsic, extrinsic, and fibrinolytic phases of coagulation in monkey and human plasma were found to be similar. (Author)
