Aims Matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) and plasminogen activator (PA)/plasmin-mediated proteolysis, especially at the cell surface, play important roles in matrix degeneration and smooth muscle cell migration, which largely contributes to vein graft failure. In this study, a novel hybrid protein was designed to inhibit both protease systems...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare effects of the transdermal contraceptive patch, a desogestrel/ethinyl estradiol (EE)-containing, monophasic combination oral contraceptive (COC) and a levonorgestrel/EE-containing, triphasic COC on hemostasis variables. Study Design: This was a randomized, open-label study of 104 young women who...

Epidemiological studies have shown that hormone therapy (HT) increases the risk of venous thromboembolism in post menopausal women. The mechanism of this increased risk is unknown; however, activation of the haemostatic system is known to contribute to the pathogenesis of venous thromboembolism. In post-menopausal women the estrogen /progestogen...

Amediplase (K2tu-PA) is a hybrid plasminogen activator, consisting of the kringle 2 domain of alteplase and the protease domain of urokinase. The objective of this study was to determine the in vitro clot penetration of amediplase in relation to its fibrin binding and to compare the properties with those of alteplase. The clot lysis activity of...

In the endometrium, angiogenesis is a physiological process, whereas in most adult tissues neovascularization is initiated only during tissue repair or pathological conditions. Pericellular proteolysis plays an important role in angiogenesis being required for endothelial cell migration, invasion, and tube formation. We studied the expression of...

Proteases of the plasminogen activator (PA) and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) system play an important role in smooth muscle cell (SMC) migration and neointima formation after vascular injury. Inhibition of either PAs or MMPs has previously been shown to result in decreased neointima formation in vivo. To inhibit both protease systems...

Purpose: On the basis of the finding of marked overexpression in angiogenic microvessels, aminopeptidase N/CD13 has recently been suggested to play a prominent role in tumor angiogenesis. A soluble form of CD13 (sCD13) is present in human plasma, but its role in cancer has not been addressed. We hypothesized that sCD13 would be shed by tumor...

Background - Smooth muscle cell migration, in addition to proliferation, contributes to a large extent to the neointima formed in humans after balloon angioplasty or bypass surgery. Plasminogen activator/plasmin-mediated proteolysis is an important mediator of this smooth muscle cell migration. Here, we report the construction of a novel hybrid...

Injury-induced neointimal development results from migration and proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (SMC). Cell migration requires controlled proteolytic degradation of extracellular matrix surrounding the cell. Plasmin is a major contributor to this process by degrading various matrix proteins directly, or indirectly by activating...

Acute promyelocytic leukaemia (APL) is a disease that is distinguished from other leukaemias by the high potential for early haemorrhagic death. Several processes are involved, such as disseminated intravascular coagulation and hyperfibrinolysis. Recently, TAFI (thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor) was identified as a link between...

Hypoxia stimulates angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels. This study evaluates the direct effect of hypoxia (1% oxygen) on the angiogenic response of human microvascular endothelial cells (hMVECs) seeded on top of a 3-dimensional fibrin matrix, hMVECs stimulated with fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) or vascular endothelial growth...

Recently, a chromogenic kit for determination of plasmin inhibitor activity, Coamatic® Plasmin Inhibitor, has been developed with the aim to increase specificity and to allow application to a wide range of automates. The highly sensitive plasmin substrate S-2403 is used and, to further improve specificity, a low level of plasmin and a short...

Angiogenesis, the formation of new capillary blood vessels, is a feature of a variety of pathological processes. To study the effects of a specific group of hormones (all ligands of the steroid/retinoid/thyroid hormone receptor superfamily) on the angiogenic process in humans, we have used a model system in which human microvascular endothelial...

Polymerized fibrin strongly enhances tissue plasminogen activator (tPA)-mediated plasminogen activation, concomitant with exposure of 'fibrin-specific' epitopes at 'Aα148-160' and 'γ312-324'. To investigate which aspects of polymerization are involved in these activities, we explored the fibrin polymerization process by evaluating the ability of...

In order to investigate the role of the hemostatic, fibrinolytic and inflammatory system in unstable angina, we assessed the levels of thrombin-antithrombin III (TAT), Prothrombin Fragment 1+2 (F1+2), plasmin-antiplasmin (PAP) and D-Dimer (DD) and of C-reactive protein (CRP) in 51 patients admitted to our CCU with severe unstable angina.

Test procedures of several commercially available functional test kits for α2-antiplasmin were investigated. The importance of the plasmin concentration, the amount of plasma used in the test and the preincubation time for a specific test for the determination of α2-antiplasmin were discussed. A Specific Plasmin Inhibition Test (SPIT) suitable...

Staphylokinase (STA), a protein of bacterial origin, induces highly fibrin-specific thrombolysis both in human plasma in vitro and in pilot clinical trials. Using fluorescence microscopy, we investigated the spatial distribution of fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)-labeled STA during lysis of a plasma clot and its binding to purified fibrin...

BM 06.022 is a non-glycosylated mutant of human tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) comprising only the kringle-2 and proteinase domains. The in vivo half-life of BM 06.022 antigen is 4- to 5-fold longer than that of t-PA antigen. The in vitro half-life of the activity of BM 06.022 at therapeutic concentrations in plasma is shorter than...

Comparison of the results for α2-antiplasmin activity of plasma samples (n = 61, range 0-125%) obtained by the 'immediate plasmin inhibition test' (IPIT) and by the automated method for the MLA Electra 1000C of Dade® shows a good correlation (R = 0.935) but a systematic disagreement especially relevant in the range below 40%. An improved method...

Despite the high overall similarity in primary structure between kringle one (K1) and kringle two (K2) of tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) there exists an enormous functional difference. It is thought that, in contrast to K1, K2 mediates lysine binding and fibrin binding and is involved in stimulation of plasminogen activation by fibrin...
