The Journal, Tsujii et al report their findings of platelet activation characteristics and the
effect of antiplatelet therapy in 33 Japanese children with acute Kawasaki disease
(KD) using a newly automated flow chamber system to evaluate platelet aggregate formation
under high shear rates (1,000 s
−1 and 2,000 s
−1 ) in a type I collagen-coated chip.
