Fibrinogen functions in primary haemostasis in support of platelet aggregation and in secondary haemostasis in the formation of an insoluble fibrin clot.
It is the final clotting factor activated in the coagulation cascade.
Inherited and acquired disorders can alter the quantity (afibrinogenemia and hypofibrinogenemia) and function (dysfibrinogenemia) of plasma fibrinogen.
Hypofibrinogenemia is generally asymptomatic, but afibrinogenemia and dysfibrinogenemia
may lead to bleeding and/or thrombosis.
Test based on the gold standard method, for maximum reliability
