But, technology is only one of several drivers of change within product development. It is becoming more and more accessible and alone, cannot serve as the only mean to stay competitive. READ MORE

  3. 3. The role of platelet thrombin receptors PAR1 and PAR4 in platelet activation

    Author : Karin Vretenbrant Öberg; Tomas Lindahl; Sofia Ramström; Johan Heemskerk; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Platelets play a pivotal role in coagulation and haemostasis. Their most prominent task is to seal damaged blood vessels by the formation of a platelet plug at the damaged area. Once the injury is covered, platelets retract the coagulum to close the wound and allow the blood to flow freely in the vessel. READ MORE
