Protein C Activity Functional Citrated plasma in Ahmedabad
The protein c test measures the amount of protein c in the blood.
Protein c must be measured to analyse the cause of a blood clot known as thromboembolism, such as a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE); and to determine whether you have a protein C or S deficiency.
Your doctor would recommend this test for you if he finds blood clots in your body especially if you are younger.
Protein C and protein S are two primary proteins in the blood that help regulate the formation of blood clot. Usually, protein c and protein s are measured together to investigate possibility of clotting issues. Normally when there is an injury, a process called as haemostasis starts to stop the bleeding. Small cell fragments called platelets adhere to and form at the injury to restricting the blood flow.
Proteins C acts as a primary agent to protein C. The two work together to help regulate and control blood clot formation by inactivating specific coagulation factors that are needed to create the blood clots. Hence, if there are not enough protein c and s, the clot formation can go unnoticed and the condition can range from mild to severe.
Reference Values Of Protein C Activity Functional Citrated plasma
The normal range of protein C activity in healthy adults is between 65 to 135 IU dL-1
Normal range of protein c indicates that there is enough clotting mechanism. A low protein c level indicates that the blood clotting is not sufficient and there is an increased risk of clot formation that could block your veins.
