Abstract

Fifty subjects with breast cancer patients and 25 healthy control were included in this study. Routine hematological investigations i.e. Hb, TLC, platelets count were done by hematology analyzer and specific investigations like prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) and fibrinogen level were performed by using commercially available kits. Results obtained were analyzed by using Student`s `t` test and level of significance was done. Platelets count and fibrinogen levels were increased in breast cancer patients but PT and APTT were comparable with control group.
