Permeability Factor and Surface Esterase
Both vascular permeability factor and surface factor (SF), which have been implicated in the activation of the kinin-releasing system in plasma, are activated when plasma is exposed to glass (1, 2). SF is adsorbed by the glass and, as a consequence, permeability-increasing activity is generated in solution (3).
