Procoagulant factors in cancer cause constitutive activation of the coagulation cascade leading to thrombin and fibrin generation.
The cancer cells have the ability to produce and secrete procoagulant/fibrinolytic substances and inflammatory cytokines, and the interaction between tumor cells and blood cells (monocytes, platelets, and neutrophils) or vascular cells can activate the coagulation cascade.
