Coagulation tests were carried out in rabbits after the intravenous administration of 2 mg/kg colloidal gold. Among the clotting factors, platelet Factor 3 and Factor XIII were found to be inhibited by the gold preparation. Gold at 2 mg/ml concentration induced an overall antithrombotic state in spite of an increased tendency to platelet aggregation. These experiments suggest a new possibility for the inhibition of Factor XIII and platelet Factor 3.
