Antithrombotic therapy for the acute management of thrombotic disorders has been stimulated and guided actively by our current understanding of platelet biology, coagulation proteases, and vascular science. A translatable platform for coagulation, based soundly on biochemistry, enzymology and cellular events on platelets and tissue factor-baring cells, introduces fundamental constructs, mechanistic clarity, and an unparalleled opportunity for accelerating the development and clinical investigation of both disease- and patient-specific therapies. In the current review, we build upon and expand substantially our observations surrounding nucleic acids as antithrombotic agents.
