What is FDP?

FDP is an abbreviation of fibrinogen/fibrin degradation products. In the broad sense, it is a product of fibrinogen or fibrin decomposed by plasmin, which is a typical marker of accentuation of fibrinolysis. FDP is a generic name which covers primary fibrinolysis, i.e., fibrinogen degradation products (FgDP), and secondary fibrinolysis, i.e., degradation products derived from fibrin (FDP in a narrow sense). If the FDP value is high, the patient is suspected of having primary or secondary enhancement of fibrinolysis, disseminated intravascular coagulation syndrome (DIC), thrombosis, hemorrhage, malignant tumor, or megadoses of urokinase
