The levels of plasma tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA), plasminogen
activator inhibitor (PAI), VIII factor related antigen (VIIIR:Ag) and anti-thrombin (AT-III) were determined in 40 hypertensive patients with Blood Stasis. The results indicated that the function of coagulation-fibrinolytic system was disturbed. After one year of practising Qigong, plasma PAI and VIII R:Ag levels were decreased, while plasma tPA and AT-III levels increased. It suggested that Qigong could improve the function of coagulation-fibrinolytic system.
