Functional Intact Fibrinogen (FiF) test superior to Clauss for cardiovascular risk :

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

American Biogenetic Sciences' Functional Intact Fibrinogen test is an accurate means of assessing risk in cardiovascular disease patients, say Framingham Heart study researchers. The test, which measures elevated fibrinogen levels in the blood, showed a closer correlation with cardiovascular disease than the commonly-used Clauss method, says ABS. The company hopes to file for 510(k) clearance later this year and expects to see fibrinogen testing incorporated into routine practice in the future.
