Fibrinogen is a circulating multifunctional blood protein of hepatic origin which, upon proteolytic conversion to fibrin by thrombin, polymerizes to form a fibrin clot, which comprises the main structural element of the intravascular thrombus. Specific study areas of fibrinogen include hemostasis and thrombosis, fibrinolysis, wound healing, angiogenesis, inflammation, cell migration, tumor growth and metastatic implantation.
