  1. hageman factor

    The Hageman factor, also known as coagulation factor XII, is a protein in the blood that plays a role in the body's inflammatory and clotting (coagulation) responses. It can initiate the formation of blood clots and also stimulate inflammatory processes. Named after Dr. John Hageman, it was discovered when it was found deficient in his blood, leading to prolonged clotting times. Abnormalities or mutations in the factor XII gene can lead to various blood disorders.
