Notes: This study investigates the biological roles of plasmin, a fibrinolytic factor, in multiple myeloma using mouse models. Tumors were imaged using the ViviRen™ In Vivo Renilla Luciferase Substrate. Activation of plasmin was observed during disease progression; however, inhibition of circulating plasmin did not change myeloma tumor growth in vivo. (5143)
