As you saw from my recent “Coagulation Factor Inheritance” post, I had the opportunity to assist with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, www.umdnj.edu, graduate hemostasis course. In addition to working with course coordinator, Elaine Keohane, PhD, I had the privilege of collaborating with my friend and colleague, Larry Smith, PhD. Larry contributed chapter 7, Hematopoietic Theory, to the third (2007) edition of Rodak BF, Fritsma GA, Doig K. Hematology Clinical Principles and Applications and is the Director of the Coagulation and Hemostasis Laboratories at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. In the course of discussions, Larry mentioned the silica clotting time (SCT), which I had not heard of, and I asked him to prepare a guest blog on the subject. His description of the SCT will appear tomorrow, Thursday, May 15. Geo.
