This supports a model under which common pathways of intracellular signalling might be utilised by all Chlamydiaceae, even though the specific receptors that mediate introgression into the cell might be highly variable.
These may involve either a single coagulation factor in the common pathway (factor II, V, X or fibrinogen) or multiple coagulation factors in both pathways (eg, due to liver disease, vitamin K deficiency, disseminated intravascular coagulation, or nonspecific inhibition by an LA).
Fibrosis--a common pathway to organ injury and failure.
These classical pathways form the basis of the two most frequently performed coagulation tests: the PT, which measures the extrinsic and common pathways, and the APTT, which measures the intrinsic and common pathways.
The more common pathway relies on the enzyme telomerase to extend telomeres.
PT is an indicator of extrinsic and common pathway while APTT indicates defects in intrinsic and common pathway.

Although largely speculative, a "best-fit" model has been suggested as the unifying final common pathway. Of course, this pathway may be triggered by a variety of aetiological agents and clinical conditions and is conditioned by the racial and genetic make-up of the individual.
