Özet

In this study Protein C (PC) and antithrombin III (AT III) levels in childhood acute leukemia were investigated. The mean PC activity levels in 19 newly diagnosed cases of acute leukemia were significantly lower as compared with the normal controls (p < 0.05). A significant increase was found (p < 0.01) in the patients in remission. Prior to treatment 78.8 percent of patients had decreased PC activity levels, but all patients had normal PC activity during remission.
