In order to evaluate the comparability of data obtained with various available kits for the immunological determination of PAI-1 antigen in plasma and in order to investigate the underlying cause of observed differences, e. g. problems of specificity or of proper calibration of the provided standard, a multicenter study was organised in the framework of the Subcommittee of Fibrinolysis of the Scientific and Standardization Committee.
