What is Gamma Prime Fibrinogen?

Gamma Prime Fibrinogen is a natural occurring protein in human blood.  It is a carrier protein for factor XIII, a thrombin binding site, forms clots that are resistant to fibrinolysis, and is strongly and significantly associated with cardiovascular disease.  Early tests performed at the Framingham Heart Study, the Stockholm Coronary Artery Risk Factor Study and others–see Proof of Concept page–indicated that if Gamma Prime Fibrinogen and Total Fibrinogen are elevated in the body, measured in the upper 25 percentile, there is a 3 fold  to 7 fold odds of coronary heart disease.
