    In a study relating platelet stickiness, plasma fibrinogen and fibrinolysis to fasting plasma lipids in patients with atherosclerosis of the lower limbs, a significant correlation has been observed between platelet stickiness and plasma phospholipid levels. The possible mechanisms are discussed. No other correlation is observed. Fasting levels of plasma fibrinogen were raised, while levels of plasminogen, and the degree of platelet stickiness in many cases were normal.
