Effect of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) on blood clotting in rat (Rattus norvegieus) was studied. We studied and compared clotting times between treated and untreated substances for blood clotting. There are compared fibrin formation times. In addition, fibrin formation on wound tissues was determined under a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The results showed that the rats treated with MSG could stop the bleeding and fibrin formation could be observed significantly faster than the others (at p < 0.05). Besides, the results also showed that the treated with MSG for the cessation of bleeding showed thicker fibrin formation at the wound tissue of rat tails than untreated the MSG. These studies indicated that MSG could be used as the cessation of bleeding.

Key words: Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), Sodium Chloride (NaCl), Blood clotting, Blood coagulation
