Spontaneous Platelet Aggregation in Patients with Behçet’s Disease by Using Laser-Light Scattering Aggregometer
Most of patients with BD had spontaneous small-size aggregation in this system. Moreover, platelet clots (a large-size platelet aggregation) were only detected in patients with BD compared with normal individuals. These date suggest that BD may exhibit spontaneous hyper-coagulation of platelet function.
