Overview of Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1

What is Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1?

The Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) test is performed to keep a check on the PAI-1 protein as high PAI-1 depresses fibrionolytic activity which leads to an increased probability of venous and arterial thrombosis. On the other hand, deficiency of PAI-1 can lead to excessive bleeding due to any injury.
