Also, intact vascular endothelium prevents platelet adhesion and balances between the secretion of procoagulant/anti-coagulant and profibrinolitic/antifibrinolytic substances contributing to the equilibrium of coagulation and fibrinolysis [10].
In case of colloids (mainly dextrans, starches and gelatines), a transient decrease in factor VIII amounts, acquired von Willebrand syndrome, impaired thrombin-fibrinogen interactions, impaired factor XIII-fibrin polymer interactions and decreased platelet adhesion and aggregation, with impairment of primary and secondary haemostasis, have been described (6, 7).
Molecules that disturb the interaction between VWF and GpIb, like monoclonal antibodies AJvW-2 [62] and AJW200 [63], the VWF recombinant fragment VCL [64], and ATA (aurintricarboxylic acid) [65] have shown to prevent neointima formation and growth, by inhibiting platelet adhesion to the vessel wall and SMC proliferation.
