Fibrin and Fibrin meshworks

Interested in the importance of the concentration of different triggers of coagulation in forming the fibrin network for instance when using the ROTEM instrument at very low FVIII concentrations. Lately also in studying the haemostasis mechanism during chocolate consumption as this has been shown to decrease heart infarcts and stroke.
