Platelet-poor plasma was obtained by centrifugation at 2000g for 15 min at 4 °C. The plasma
samples were stored at −80 °C until use. Plasma TAFI antigen levels were measured using
enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kits (Affinity Biologicals, Ontario, Canada)


A low TAFI activity and insufficient activation of fibrinolysis by both plasmin and neutrophil elastase promote organ dysfunction in disseminated intravascular …

Addition of reagents and plasma dilutions have been done manually; wash- ing
processes and readings were done automatically. For this reason, Visualize TAFI
antigen kits (Affinity Biologicals Ontorio, Canada) have been used.


Thrombin activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI) is not associated with fetal loss, a retrospective study
