      Abstract

      The water-soluble derivatives of chlorophyllin had the ability to inhibit the formation of fibrin clots when thrombin was added to fibrinogen. Apparently, a direct relationship was present between the amount of chlorophyllin and the concentration of fibrinogen in the reaction. Chlorophyllin did not cause the solution of fibrin clots after they were formed.
