In the coagulation process, the smallest cells in the blood, the platelets interact with a large number of blood proteins. But also the endothelium and its inner layer the glycocalyx are important. The most important task of coagulation is to stop bleeding secondary to blood vessel damage. In intensive care and surgery, many situations of disturbed coagulation occur - either too strong or too weak. Treatment and monitoring of these coagulation defects are usually not optimal. In our group and laboratory we develop new methods and examine the latest technology of coagulation instruments both in clinical patients but also in volunteers to improve diagnostics and treatment. Registry studies regarding coagulation changes in the intensive care and complications to central venous catheters are also studied. Our cancer research focuses on effects of platelet transfusions, thrombosis and antitumour effects of vitamin K2.
