  • Quantitative Fibrinogen

Fibrinogen is a blood component necessary for normal blood clotting. High blood levels of fibrinogen can lead to the development of stroke, heart attack, or be the result of cigarette smoking, pneumonia, or trauma. Low blood levels of fibrinogen are seen in people with cancer, difficulty clotting, liver diseases, or after a large number of blood transfusions.
