    Studies in the rat with hepatic necrosis induced by carbon tetrachloride showed that the abnormalities in one-stage coagulation tests and the increased catabolism of fibrinogen were similar to those found in man with acute viral or drug-induced hepatic necrosis. Determination of the distribution of the radioactive label shows that excessive deposition was maximal in the liver but also occurred in the spleen. The appearance is delayed by heparin but accelerated by tranexamic acid.
