Prothrombin Time (PT)*

PT explores the coagulation extrinsic pathway and can be used for investigating some congenital or acquired bleeding disorders, liver diseases, vitamin K deficiency and vitamin K antagonists therapy.
It allows exploration of so-called vitamin K dependent coagulation factors.
This is the most widely used coagulation assay for laboratory monitoring of anticoagulant therapy with Vitamin K Antagonists (VKA).
