Title: Application of Hematocrit/Hemoglobin-derived Correction Algorithm to Whole Blood Platelet Reactivity Tests. UMMS14-02; Patent Pending. 

  • The invention relates to novel methods and assays, which provide accurate and easily implemented measurement and analyses of whole blood platelet reactivity. These assays can be used to identify patients at high risk of thrombotic complications and recurrent ischemic events, especially those with lowered response to clopidogrel. These patients can then be targeted with enhanced anti-platelet therapy.
