Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess primary and secondary hemostasis in individuals with bleeding and clotting disorders [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: October 2002
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

This is an exploratory study involving blood coagulation assays in a select group of individuals. The ROTEG is a newly developed coagulation analyzer which allows the continuous assessment of whole blood coagulation from the formation of the first fibrin fibers and activated platelets, to the formation of a three-dimensional whole blood clot until the eventual dissolution of the clot. This device will not be used as a diagnostic or procedure tool. No recommendations regarding interpretation of the results or implications for future treatment will be provided.
