Authors: Fadıl ÖZYENER, Hakan GÜR, Kasım ÖZLÜK

Abstract: Changes in fibrinolytic activity (FA) were investigated and followed for 4 hours after brief exhaustive maximal exercise in sedentary males. Sixteen volunteer, healthy, nonsmoking subjects aged 23.0±3.9 (19-30) performed a maximal cycling exercise to exhaustion. Euglobulin lysis time (ELT), fibrin plate lysis area (FPLA), fibrinogen (F), tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA), pH and lactate (L) concentrations in plasma were measured before, immediately, and one and four hours after the exercise. The results of FPLA and tPA increased immediately (p
