The objective of the present study was to evaluate the influence of thrombophilia risk factors on variables of a chromogenic thrombin generation assay (ETP) in a setting with acute deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and non-DVT patients. In 152 outpatients suspected for DVT, the results of thrombophilia investigations were known. In all patients,...

Differences in genetic influence on death from CHD between males and females have been reported. Haemostatic factors have consistently been associated with risk for coronary heart disease (CHD), but sex differences in genetic architecture have not been studied. This study in middle-aged twins investigates whether there are sex differences in...

Background: Flow mediated dilatation (FMD) of the brachial artery and soluble intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (sICAM-1) are measures of distinct functions of the endothelium, reflecting nitric oxide (NO)-mediated and pro-inflammatory status, respectively. The comparative value of the two measures in relation to cardiovascular risk is unknown....

A chromogenic bioimmunoassay method for determination of t-PA activities has been evaluated on plasmas from healthy individuals and from thromboembolic patients. The assay consists of an initial binding and washing step, whereby plasma t-PA is bound to a specific monoclonal t-PA antibody, which is coated on to microplate wells, followed by a...

Background and objective. A low activated protein C (APC) response increases the risk of venous thrombosis, and possibly arterial disease. Apart from the factor V Leiden mutation, other factors may determine the level of APC response. In most studies on the association with arterial disease, cardiovascular risk factors were not appropriately...

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. Thirty...

The genetic component of human longevity is estimated at 30%. Which genes are involved in determining human longevity, however, is largely unknown. Genes that may affect human survival are susceptibility loci for major age related pathologies. Many studies are being performed to identify such loci for cardiovascular disease, dementia and...

Elevated plasma fibrinogen levels represent an increased risk for cardiovascular diseased, but the mechanism explaining this association is still not clear. Genetic differences may play a role, because it has been shown that individuals who carry the rare alleles of polymorphisms in the genes for the Bβ-chain (Bcl I and G/A 455) and the Aα-chain...

Recent studies describe families with both elevated plasma HRG levels and thrombosis. In order to study the possibility that allelic variants of the HRG locus are associated with differences in HRG level, we studied linkage between HRG levels and a dinucleotide repeat polymorphism in a Dutch family which was selected on the presence of both...

The enhancement of the blood fibrinolytic potential by physical exercise is generally attributed to the release of tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) from the vessel wall. In this study we have investigated the possible contribution of urokinase-type plasminogen activator (u-PA). Six healthy male volunteers (age 21-25 years) were screened...

Two hundred and three patients with venous thrombophilia were investigated in order to find out whether an elevated plasma concentration of plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI) could be a cause of their tendency to thrombosis. The patients were studied in an asymptomatic period about 3 months after their last thromboembolic episode. PAI...

To investigate the effect of moderate alcohol consumption on blood constituents related to cardiovascular disease, 12 male volunteers consumed (instead of their usual alcoholic drinks) four different standardized amounts of red wine in addition to their habitual diet. Each dose was given to the subjects during a period of 5 weeks in a randomized...

??2-Antiplasmin (??2-AP) is a major fibrinolysis inhibitor, whose complete, congenital absence has been found to be associated with a distinct hemorrhagic diathesis. We studied a 15-yr-old male with a hemorrhagic diathesis after trauma from early childhood on. This bleeding tendency was associated with a minimal ??2-AP level recorded...

In nine patients with non-malignant diseases undergoing major upper abdominal surgery, the mechanism of the postoperative fibrinolytic shut-down was investigated because of its potential significance for postoperative deep vein thrombosis by employing new and specific methods for assessing and stimulating the fibrinolytic system. The shut-down...

This study concerns a case of congenital homozygous deficiency in ??2-antiplasmin associated with a severe hemorrhagic diathesis. Heterozygous family members also show a mild bleeding tendency. The propositus is a 17-yr-old male born of white parents and showing a severe hemorrhagic diathesis characterized by spontaneous bleeding in the joints...

3 patients with Behcet's disease were studied for their fibrinolytic status during exacerbation of the disease accompanied with thrombotic complications. All 3 patients exhibited low euglobulin fibrinolytic activity. This, however, could be attributed to an artificially increased coprecipitation of inhibitors, i.e., C1-inactivator in the...
