Brief description Blood clots are critical to the development of heart attacks, which kill many thousands of Australians annually. Platelets are cells in the blood that play an essential role in formation of blood clots, and coronary disease is associated with platelet activation. This research study will investigate the nature of platelet activation in the arteries of the human heart, its relationship to activation of inflammatory cells, and to the severity of narrowings in the arteries of the human heart.
