VCS Seminar: Dr. Laura Rayhel

“In Vitro Effects of Nattokinase on Fibrinolysis in Feline Blood Samples Assessed Via Thromboelastography’”

Presenter: Dr. Laura Rayhel, VTH Intern 

Nattokinase is a serine protease derived from Natto, a cheese-like food product made from soybeans fermented with Bacillus subtilis that is regularly consumed in Japan. Studies in rats, rabbits, and humans have found Nattokinase to be effective at improving fibrinolysis, preventing thrombosis and platelet aggregation, decreased blood pressure. Additionally, nattokinase was found to have anti-coagulant effects on multiple key enzymes in the

coagulation cascade. A study was conducted to demonstrate the ability of nattokinase to produce fibrinolysis on a fibrin plate as previously described, and to demonstrate the in vitro effects of nattokinase on fibrinolysis via thromboelastographic analysis in feline blood

samples. The hypothesis was that nattokinase would be effective in lysing a fibrin clot on a fibrin plate, and that nattokinase would be more effective than phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) and comparable to tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) at producing fibrinolysis

according to TEG analysis.

One (1) Continuing Education (CE) credit is offered for this seminar.
