Xinhua News Agency, London, August 9 (Reporter Zhang Jiawei)-A Chinese team released a report on the 9th that they found that coagulation factors, the blood component involved in blood clotting after human injuries, have the potential to fight multiple drug resistance.

The team led by scholars from Sichuan University reported in the journal Cell Research, published by the Chinese Academy of Sciences in cooperation with the British Natural Publishing Group, that they found that coagulation factors VII,IX and X may also be resistant to Gram-negative bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii, in addition to playing an important role in the coagulation process.

Gram-negative bacteria are characterized by a capsule consisting of an inner cell membrane, a thin cell wall and an outer cell membrane, which makes them difficult to kill.

Song Xu, a scholar at Sichuan University and author of the report's newsletter, said:

The team believes that the ability of coagulation factors to hydrolyze lipopolysaccharide in bacterial envelopes suggests that they may have the potential to resist Gram-negative bacteria. The team also further explored the mechanism in the laboratory.
