1. Introduction
The kallikrein­kinin system (KKS) in the plasma of mammals
involves activation of Hageman factor (factor XII) by contact
with a charged surface resulting in the activation of
prekallikrein and subsequent cleavage of high molecular
mass kininogen to generate bradykinin (BK) [2]. BK is the
