Hemorrhagic and thrombotic disorders that occur as a consequence of inherited abnormalities in blood coagulation.
Hemorrhagic and thrombotic disorders that occur as a consequence of abnormalities in blood coagulation due to a variety of factors such as COAGULATION PROTEIN DISORDERS; BLOOD PLATELET DISORDERS; BLOOD PROTEIN DISORDERS or nutritional conditions.
The process of the interaction of BLOOD COAGULATION FACTORS that results in an insoluble FIBRIN clot.
A disorder characterized by procoagulant substances entering the general circulation causing a systemic thrombotic process. The activation of the clotting mechanism may arise from any of a number of disorders. A majority of the patients manifest skin lesions, sometimes leading to PURPURA FULMINANS.
A deficiency or absence of FIBRINOGEN in the blood.
Laboratory tests for evaluating the individual's clotting mechanism.
Spontaneous or near spontaneous bleeding caused by a defect in clotting mechanisms (BLOOD COAGULATION DISORDERS) or another abnormality causing a structural flaw in the blood vessels (HEMOSTATIC DISORDERS).
Clotting time of PLASMA recalcified in the presence of excess TISSUE THROMBOPLASTIN. Factors measured are FIBRINOGEN; PROTHROMBIN; FACTOR V; FACTOR VII; and FACTOR X. It is used for monitoring anticoagulant therapy with COUMARINS.
Endogenous substances, usually proteins, that are involved in the blood coagulation process.
The classic hemophilia resulting from a deficiency of factor VIII. It is an inherited disorder of blood coagulation characterized by a permanent tendency to hemorrhage.
The time required for the appearance of FIBRIN strands following the mixing of PLASMA with phospholipid platelet substitute (e.g., crude cephalins, soybean phosphatides). It is a test of the intrinsic pathway (factors VIII, IX, XI, and XII) and the common pathway (fibrinogen, prothrombin, factors V and X) of BLOOD COAGULATION. It is used as a screening test and to monitor HEPARIN therapy.
Surgical incision of the trachea.
Blood coagulation disorder usually inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, though it can be acquired. It is characterized by defective activity in both the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways, impaired thromboplastin time, and impaired prothrombin consumption.
A deficiency of blood coagulation factor V (known as proaccelerin or accelerator globulin or labile factor) leading to a rare hemorrhagic tendency known as Owren's disease or parahemophilia. It varies greatly in severity. Factor V deficiency is an autosomal recessive trait. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Heat- and storage-labile plasma glycoprotein which accelerates the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin in blood coagulation. Factor V accomplishes this by forming a complex with factor Xa, phospholipid, and calcium (prothrombinase complex). Deficiency of factor V leads to Owren's disease.
Constituent composed of protein and phospholipid that is widely distributed in many tissues. It serves as a cofactor with factor VIIa to activate factor X in the extrinsic pathway of blood coagulation.
Plasma glycoprotein clotted by thrombin, composed of a dimer of three non-identical pairs of polypeptide chains (alpha, beta, gamma) held together by disulfide bonds. Fibrinogen clotting is a sol-gel change involving complex molecular arrangements: whereas fibrinogen is cleaved by thrombin to form polypeptides A and B, the proteolytic action of other enzymes yields different fibrinogen degradation products.
Bleeding or escape of blood from a vessel.
Hemorrhage following any surgical procedure. It may be immediate or delayed and is not restricted to the surgical wound.
Activated form of factor X that participates in both the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways of blood coagulation. It catalyzes the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin in conjunction with other cofactors.
Heat- and storage-stable plasma protein that is activated by tissue thromboplastin to form factor VIIa in the extrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. The activated form then catalyzes the activation of factor X to factor Xa.
Storage-stable glycoprotein blood coagulation factor that can be activated to factor Xa by both the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways. A deficiency of factor X, sometimes called Stuart-Prower factor deficiency, may lead to a systemic coagulation disorder.
A plasma protein that is the inactive precursor of thrombin. It is converted to thrombin by a prothrombin activator complex consisting of factor Xa, factor V, phospholipid, and calcium ions. Deficiency of prothrombin leads to hypoprothrombinemia.
Storage-stable blood coagulation factor acting in the intrinsic pathway. Its activated form, IXa, forms a complex with factor VIII and calcium on platelet factor 3 to activate factor X to Xa. Deficiency of factor IX results in HEMOPHILIA B (Christmas Disease).
Use of a thrombelastograph, which provides a continuous graphic record of the physical shape of a clot during fibrin formation and subsequent lysis.
Activated form of factor VII. Factor VIIa activates factor X in the extrinsic pathway of blood coagulation.
An enzyme formed from PROTHROMBIN that converts FIBRINOGEN to FIBRIN.
A fibrin-stabilizing plasma enzyme (TRANSGLUTAMINASES) that is activated by THROMBIN and CALCIUM to form FACTOR XIIIA. It is important for stabilizing the formation of the fibrin polymer (clot) which culminates the coagulation cascade.
The time required by whole blood to produce a visible clot.
Blood-coagulation factor VIII. Antihemophilic factor that is part of the factor VIII/von Willebrand factor complex. Factor VIII is produced in the liver and acts in the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. It serves as a cofactor in factor X activation and this action is markedly enhanced by small amounts of thrombin.
Activated form of factor XI. In the intrinsic pathway, Factor XI is activated to XIa by factor XIIa in the presence of cofactor HMWK; (HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT KININOGEN). Factor XIa then activates factor IX to factor IXa in the presence of calcium.
The natural enzymatic dissolution of FIBRIN.
Substances, usually endogenous, that act as inhibitors of blood coagulation. They may affect one or multiple enzymes throughout the process. As a group, they also inhibit enzymes involved in processes other than blood coagulation, such as those from the complement system, fibrinolytic enzyme system, blood cells, and bacteria.
Agents that cause clotting.
A plasma alpha 2 glycoprotein that accounts for the major antithrombin activity of normal plasma and also inhibits several other enzymes. It is a member of the serpin superfamily.
The process which spontaneously arrests the flow of BLOOD from vessels carrying blood under pressure. It is accomplished by contraction of the vessels, adhesion and aggregation of formed blood elements (eg. ERYTHROCYTE AGGREGATION), and the process of BLOOD COAGULATION.
A vitamin-K dependent zymogen present in the blood, which, upon activation by thrombin and thrombomodulin exerts anticoagulant properties by inactivating factors Va and VIIIa at the rate-limiting steps of thrombin formation.
Activated form of factor IX. This activation can take place via the intrinsic pathway by the action of factor XIa and calcium, or via the extrinsic pathway by the action of factor VIIa, thromboplastin, and calcium. Factor IXa serves to activate factor X to Xa by cleaving the arginyl-leucine peptide bond in factor X.
Starches that have been chemically modified so that a percentage of OH groups are substituted with 2-hydroxyethyl ether groups.
A major affective disorder marked by severe mood swings (manic or major depressive episodes) and a tendency to remission and recurrence.
Clotting time of PLASMA mixed with a THROMBIN solution. It is a measure of the conversion of FIBRINOGEN to FIBRIN, which is prolonged by AFIBRINOGENEMIA, abnormal fibrinogen, or the presence of inhibitory substances, e.g., fibrin-fibrinogen degradation products, or HEPARIN. BATROXOBIN, a thrombin-like enzyme unaffected by the presence of heparin, may be used in place of thrombin.
Activated form of factor XII. In the initial event in the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation, kallikrein (with cofactor HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT KININOGEN) cleaves factor XII to XIIa. Factor XIIa is then further cleaved by kallikrein, plasmin, and trypsin to yield smaller factor XII fragments (Hageman-Factor fragments). These fragments increase the activity of prekallikrein to kallikrein but decrease the procoagulant activity of factor XII.
Agents that prevent clotting.
A protein derived from FIBRINOGEN in the presence of THROMBIN, which forms part of the blood clot.
Any liquid used to replace blood plasma, usually a saline solution, often with serum albumins, dextrans or other preparations. These substances do not enhance the oxygen- carrying capacity of blood, but merely replace the volume. They are also used to treat dehydration.
Stable blood coagulation factor involved in the intrinsic pathway. The activated form XIa activates factor IX to IXa. Deficiency of factor XI is often called hemophilia C.
Stable blood coagulation factor activated by contact with the subendothelial surface of an injured vessel. Along with prekallikrein, it serves as the contact factor that initiates the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. Kallikrein activates factor XII to XIIa. Deficiency of factor XII, also called the Hageman trait, leads to increased incidence of thromboembolic disease. Mutations in the gene for factor XII that appear to increase factor XII amidolytic activity are associated with HEREDITARY ANGIOEDEMA TYPE III.
A hereditary deficiency of blood coagulation factor XI (also known as plasma thromboplastin antecedent or PTA or antihemophilic factor C) resulting in a systemic blood-clotting defect called hemophilia C or Rosenthal's syndrome, that may resemble classical hemophilia.
A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.
Psychiatric illness or diseases manifested by breakdowns in the adaptational process expressed primarily as abnormalities of thought, feeling, and behavior producing either distress or impairment of function.
Endogenous factors and drugs that directly inhibit the action of THROMBIN, usually by blocking its enzymatic activity. They are distinguished from INDIRECT THROMBIN INHIBITORS, such as HEPARIN, which act by enhancing the inhibitory effects of antithrombins.
An absence or reduced level of blood coagulation factor XII. It normally occurs in the absence of patient or family history of hemorrhagic disorders and is marked by prolonged clotting time.
Soluble protein fragments formed by the proteolytic action of plasmin on fibrin or fibrinogen. FDP and their complexes profoundly impair the hemostatic process and are a major cause of hemorrhage in intravascular coagulation and fibrinolysis.
Persistent and disabling ANXIETY.
Those disorders that have a disturbance in mood as their predominant feature.
Activated form of factor VIII. The B-domain of factor VIII is proteolytically cleaved by thrombin to form factor VIIIa. Factor VIIIa exists as a non-covalent dimer in a metal-linked (probably calcium) complex and functions as a cofactor in the enzymatic activation of factor X by factor IXa. Factor VIIIa is similar in structure and generation to factor Va.
Formation and development of a thrombus or blood clot in the blood vessel.
Non-nucleated disk-shaped cells formed in the megakaryocyte and found in the blood of all mammals. They are mainly involved in blood coagulation.
Activated form of factor V. It is an essential cofactor for the activation of prothrombin catalyzed by factor Xa.

Life-threatening thrombosis in mice with targeted Arg48-to-Cys mutation of the heparin-binding domain of antithrombin. (1/38)

Antithrombin (AT) inhibits thrombin and some other coagulation factors in a reaction that is dramatically accelerated by binding of a pentasaccharide sequence present in heparin/heparan-sulfate to a heparin-binding site on AT. Based on the involvement of R47 in the heparin/AT interaction and the frequent occurrence of R47 mutations in AT deficiency patients, targeted knock-in of the corresponding R48C substitution in AT in mice was performed to generate a murine model of spontaneous thrombosis. The mutation efficiently abolished the effect of heparin-like molecules on coagulation inhibition in vitro and in vivo. Mice homozygous for the mutation (AT(m/m) mice) developed spontaneous, life-threatening thrombosis, occurring as early as the day of birth. Only 60% of the AT(m/m) offspring reached weaning age, with further loss at different ages. Thrombotic events in adult homozygotes were most prominent in the heart, liver, and in ocular, placental, and penile vessels. In the neonate, spontaneous death invariably was associated with major thrombosis in the heart. This severe thrombotic phenotype underlines a critical function of the heparin-binding site of antithrombin and its interaction with heparin/heparan-sulfate moieties in health, reproduction, and survival, and represents an in vivo model for comparative analysis of heparin-derived and other antithrombotic molecules.  (+info)

Congenital bleeding disorders. (2/38)

Both clinical and basic problems related to the congenital bleeding disorders continue to confront hematologists. On the forefront are efforts to bring genetic correction of the more common bleeding disorders such as hemophilia A to the clinic in a safe and accessible manner. A second issue, particularly for patients with hemophilia, is the development of inhibitors-questions of how they arise and how to prevent and treat these problems that confound otherwise very successful replacement therapy and allow patients to maintain normal lifestyles. A third issue is the continuing question of diagnosis and management of von Willebrand disease, the most common congenital bleeding disorder, especially in individuals who have borderline laboratory values, but have a history of clinical bleeding. In Section I, Dr. Christopher Walsh discusses general principles of effective gene transfer for the hemophilias, specific information about viral vectors and non-viral gene transfer, and alternative target tissues for factor VIII and factor IX production. He highlights information about the immune response to gene transfer and reviews data from the hemophilia gene transfer trials to date. The future prospects for newer methods of therapy such as RNA repair and the use of gene-modified circulating endothelial progenitors are presented as possible alternatives to the more traditional gene therapy approaches. In Section II, Dr. Nigel Key focuses on inhibitor development in patients with hemophilia A. He reviews the progress in our understanding of the risk factors and presents newer information about the immunobiology of inhibitor development. He discusses the natural history of these inhibitors and the screening, laboratory diagnosis, and treatment, including the use of different modalities for the treatment of acute bleeding episodes. Dr. Key also presents information about the eradication of inhibitors by immune tolerance induction and reviews recent information from the international registries regarding the status and success of immune tolerance induction. In Section III, Dr. Margaret Rick discusses the diagnosis, classification, and management of von Willebrand disease. Attention is given to the difficulty of diagnosis in patients with mild bleeding histories and borderline laboratory test results for von Willebrand factor. She presents the value of different laboratory assays for both diagnosis and classification, and she relates the classification of von Willebrand disease to the choice of treatment and to the known genetic mutations. Practical issues of diagnosis and treatment, including clinical cases, will be presented.  (+info)

Recessively inherited coagulation disorders. (3/38)

Deficiencies of coagulation factors other than factor VIII and factor IX that cause bleeding disorders are inherited as autosomal recessive traits and are rare, with prevalences in the general population varying between 1 in 500 000 and 1 in 2 million for the homozygous forms. As a consequence of the rarity of these deficiencies, the type and severity of bleeding symptoms, the underlying molecular defects, and the actual management of bleeding episodes are not as well established as for hemophilia A and B. We investigated more than 1000 patients with recessively inherited coagulation disorders from Italy and Iran, a country with a high rate of recessive diseases due to the custom of consanguineous marriages. Based upon this experience, this article reviews the genetic basis, prevalent clinical manifestations, and management of these disorders. The steps and actions necessary to improve the condition of these often neglected patients are outlined.  (+info)

Analysis of biological phenotypes from 42 patients with inherited factor VII deficiency: can biological tests predict the bleeding risk? (4/38)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Inherited factor VII (FVII) deficiency is a rare bleeding disorder characterized by a poor relationship between reported FVII clotting activity (FVII:C) and bleeding tendency. Our study was aimed at defining biological parameters that are possibly predictive for bleeding risk in this condition. DESIGN AND METHODS: Forty-two FVII-deficient patients (FVII:C <30%) were classified into two opposite clinical groups defined as severe and non-or-mild bleeders. For each patient, plasma samples were collected and then investigated for FVII:C (using a sensitive method and human recombinant thromboplastin as the reagent), FVII antigen, activated FVII coagulant activity (FVIIa:C) and the free-form of tissue factor pathway inhibitor. RESULTS: None of these tests could be used as highly accurate predictors of bleeding. Nevertheless, both FVII:C and FVIIa:C differed significantly between the two clinical groups. Using ROC-curve analysis, two critical values of 8% and 3mIU/mL for FVII:C and FVIIa:C, respectively, could be proposed to discriminate between severe bleeders and non-or-mild bleeders. INTERPRETATION AND CONCLUSIONS: A highly accurate diagnostic test for predicting bleeding tendency in inherited FVII deficiency still eludes definition, highlighting the fact that factors other than FVII itself interfere with the expression of bleeding phenotypes in this condition. Nevertheless, potential critical values using sensitive FVII:C and FVIIa:C methods may be useful in clinical laboratories for FVII-deficient patients. Those patients with FVII:C levels higher than 8% FVII:C or FVIIa:C higher than 3 mIU/mL, with no other hemostatic defect, seem to have a minimal risk of severe bleeding. Extended clinical studies are needed to support these findings.  (+info)

A novel missense mutation in ABCA1 results in altered protein trafficking and reduced phosphatidylserine translocation in a patient with Scott syndrome. (5/38)

Scott syndrome (SS) is a bleeding disorder characterized by a failure to expose phosphatidylserine (PS) to the outer leaflet of the platelet plasma membrane. Because the adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-binding cassette transporter A1 (ABCA1) is implicated in the exofacial translocation of PS, we assessed its role in the pathophysiology of a patient with SS. Substantially reduced levels of ABCA1 mRNA were found in the patient's leukocytes, compared with controls. The SS patient was heterozygous for a novel missense mutation c.6064G>A (ABCA1 R1925Q), absent from unaffected family members and controls. Both mutant and wild-type alleles were reduced in mRNA expression, and no causative mutation for this phenomenon was identified in the ABCA1 gene or its proximal promoter, suggesting a putative second mutation in a trans-acting regulatory gene may also be involved in the disorder in this patient. In vitro expression studies showed impaired trafficking of ABCA1 R1925Q to the plasma membrane. Overexpression of wild-type ABCA1 in SS lymphocytes complemented the Ca2+-dependent PS exposure at the cell surface. These data identify a mutation in ABCA1 that contributes to the defective PS translocation phenotype in our patient with SS.  (+info)

Perinatal renal venous thrombosis: presenting renal length predicts outcome. (6/38)

BACKGROUND: Renal venous thrombosis (RVT) is the most common form of venous thrombosis in neonates, causing both acute and long term kidney dysfunction. Historical predisposing factors include dehydration, maternal diabetes, and umbilical catheters, but recent reports highlight associations with prothrombotic abnormalities. STUDY: Twenty three patients with neonatal RVT were analysed over 15 years. Predisposing factors, presentation, and procoagulant status were compared with renal outcome using multilevel modelling. RESULTS: Median presentation was on day 1: 19/23 (83%) had pre/perinatal problems, including fetal distress (14), intrauterine growth retardation (five), and pre-identified renal abnormalities (two); 8/18 (44%) had procoagulant abnormalities, particularly factor V Leiden mutations (4/18). Long term abnormalities were detected in 28/34 (82%) affected kidneys; mean glomerular filtration rate was 93.6 versus 70.2 ml/min/1.73 m2 in unilateral versus bilateral cases (difference 23.4; 95% confidence interval 6.4 to 40.4; p = 0.01). No correlation was observed between procoagulant tendencies and outcome, but presenting renal length had a significant negative correlation: mean fall in estimated single kidney glomerular filtration rate was 3 ml/min/1.73 m2 (95% confidence interval 3.7 to -2.2; p = 0.001) per 1 mm increase, and kidneys larger than 6 cm at presentation never had a normal outcome. CONCLUSIONS: This subgroup of neonatal RVT would be better termed perinatal RVT to reflect antenatal and birth related antecedents. Prothrombotic defects should be considered in all patients with perinatal RVT. Kidney length at presentation correlated negatively with renal outcome. The latter, novel observation raises the question of whether larger organs should be treated more aggressively in future.  (+info)

Compound heterozygosity of novel missense mutations in the gamma-glutamyl-carboxylase gene causes hereditary combined vitamin K-dependent coagulation factor deficiency. (7/38)

Hereditary combined vitamin K-dependent (VKD) coagulation factor deficiency is an autosomal recessive bleeding disorder associated with defects in either the gamma-carboxylase, which carboxylates VKD proteins to render them active, or the vitamin K epoxide reductase (VKORC1), which supplies the reduced vitamin K cofactor required for carboxylation. Such deficiencies are rare, and we report the fourth case resulting from mutations in the carboxylase gene, identified in a Tunisian girl who exhibited impaired function in hemostatic VKD factors that was not restored by vitamin K administration. Sequence analysis of the proposita did not identify any mutations in the VKORC1 gene but, remarkably, revealed 3 heterozygous mutations in the carboxylase gene that caused the substitutions Asp31Asn, Trp157Arg, and Thr591Lys. None of these mutations have previously been reported. Family analysis showed that Asp31Asn and Thr591Lys were coallelic and maternally transmitted while Trp157Arg was transmitted by the father, and a genomic screen of 100 healthy individuals ruled out frequent polymorphisms. Mutational analysis indicated wild-type activity for the Asp31Asn carboxylase. In contrast, the respective Trp157Arg and Thr591Lys activities were 8% and 0% that of wild-type carboxylase, and their compound heterozygosity can therefore account for functional VKD factor deficiency. The implications for carboxylase mechanism are discussed.  (+info)

A novel fibrinogen variant (fibrinogen Seoul II; AalphaGln328Pro) characterized by impaired fibrin alpha-chain cross-linking. (8/38)

We report a novel fibrinogen variant (fibrinogen Seoul II), which has a heterozygous point mutation from CAA to CCA leading to AalphaGln328Pro. The mutation site is among several glutamine residues that serve as alpha-chain cross-linking acceptor sites. Fibrinogen Seoul II was found in a 51-year-old male patient and his family in Seoul, Korea. The patient was diagnosed with myocardial infarction at age 43. Eight years later he was admitted to the emergency room due to recurrence of the disease, where he expired under treatment with tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA). Fibrin polymerization curves, made using purified fibrinogen from the patient's relatives, showed a decreased final turbidity, suggesting Seoul II fibrin clots are composed of thinner fibers. This supposition was verified using scanning electron microscopy. Alpha-polymer formation by the mutant fibrinogen upon thrombin treatment in the presence of factor XIII and calcium was distinctly impaired. This result confirms that the residue Aalpha328 plays a pivotal role in alpha-chain cross-linking.  (+info)

CLINICAL PROFILE OF PATIENTS WITH RARE INHERITED COAGULATION DISORDERS: A RETROSPECTIVE ANALYSIS OF 67 PATIENTS FROM NORTHERN INDIA
Liver transplant is a life-saving procedure in patients with end-stage liver disease. However, this procedure may be associated with transmission of various deficiencies of proteins synthesized by the liver. Factor I (fibrinogen) deficiency is one of the rare inherited coagulation disorders with an extremely low risk of transmission by liver transplant. We report a case of a patient with no inherited coagulation disorders but who demonstrated disturbance of fibrinogen after liver transplant. This case highlights the ever-present risk of donor-to-recipient disease transmission during transplant and emphasizes the difficulty in procuring organs from donors in which standard blood tests are insufficient to determine the likelihood of this event ...

In this exclusive interview, Peter Duesberg, PhD, discusses his controversial cancer theory and why the scientific community and the mainstream media are forced to ignore it.. Question: Your recently proposed theory of cancer, based on the notion of abnormal numbers of chromosomes, runs contrary to currently accepted theory of genetic mutation. Can you give a brief overview of the theory for the uneducated reader?. Answer: Briefly, there are two very different mechanisms of mutation, gene mutation for minor adjustments within a species and chromosome number mutation for big dominant changes, good or bad.. All chromosome number mutations, such as the normal ones that determine sex and a new species and the abnormal ones that happen at conception or in rare cells after birth, change the phenotype dramatically, or dominantly as we say in the business. The accidental chromosome number mutations that occur at conception and after birth all generate abnormal chromosome numbers, called aneuploidy, ...

The Canadian Hemophilia Society has awarded Dr. Ronald Barr of McMaster University, and co-investigators at three other Canadian centres, a research grant to analyze data from a national survey of women and men with inherited bleeding disorders. The survey was undertaken because a pilot study had shown that women with the most common bleeding disorder, von Willebrands disease, had much poorer overall health than men with the same disease and about the same level of poor health as severe hemophiliacs who are infected with the AIDS virus. It was proposed that bleeding disorders in women, by causing heavy menstrual bleeding, lead to chronic iron deficiency, poor overall health and low educational achievement. All regional hemophilia centres in Canada supported the national survey that collected information and blood samples (to determine iron levels) from a total of 408 people. A questionnaire asked about 14 important aspects of overall health, highest level of education and use of iron ...
The re-classification of sickle cell and thalassaemia (recessively inherited blood disorders (IBDs) within prevention and management of birth defects by the WHO, in 2011, marks an important moment in the framing of these disorders as an emergent global health crisis.

For non-complex CFIDS, changing one item may be sufficient for the body to deal with other items.

My personal opinion is that CFIDS is a complex disease with many different paths but that there is a general pattern. The different paths are due to different infections (that share some similar characteristics -- often the immune response generated), different genetic factors (for example, inherited coagulation defects) and environmental factors (including items like mercury [increases Th2 ...

by Donna McCollum The return for drug seizures is often a large check from the U.S. Marshals office. U. S. Marshal John Moore said Tuesday, It is great privilege this afternoon to present a check to the Deep East Texas Narcotics Task Force in the amount of $123,359. Moore is the man who makes sure those agencies on the front line get their fair share. It is what we find is a very fair and equitable process to dole out those funds in direct relationship to the activity, Moore explained. The check is vitally important when federal grants pay for less than half of task force operating budget. Sheriff Thomas Kerss said, These seizures are what helps keep those resources out in the community throughout East Texas fighting drugs. Since a concerted law enforcement effort called, Meth Busters was initiated last summer federal prosecutors have lost track of all the meth cases theyve prosecuted. But they never lose sight of their importance. U.S. Attorney Malcolm Bales said theres been, very ...

size isnt the only factor but its one of the most important factors. Elite NFL defensive ends are 64, 265. You dont want a tackle or TE out there at 62 270 trying to block him. The bigger the player, the better reach and potential ability to hold up better physically. Hitting the genetic lottery is gold. If Shaq was 63, he probably doesnt play in the nba...heck he might be a football player. Would Randy Moss be a hall of fame member if he was 59. His skill was winning jump balls and using his long stride to out run dbs. Steph Curry dad was 65 NBA player that was an incredible shooter and his mom was a Div.1 volleyball player. He hit the lotto when he was created (his little brother also in the NBA). . Dont believe them when they say size doesnt matter...lol ...

By Dr. Ben Lerner Your body will adapt or un-adapt to whatever stresses you do or dont impose on it. Consider these opposing forces.. Law of Adaption. If you run long distances, your muscles, joints, lungs and heart will adapt in a way that allows you to go the distance. This is a good thing, and the reason a marathon runner actually looks like one. And, if youre a sprinter, your body adapts for short distances. Thats why sprinters look like and or train like body builders.. So if you want to improve stamina and cardio functioning, you run for a long time and your body adapts in a way to support that. If you want to increase strength and power, you do short sprints and you adapt for that.. If you want big, strong round muscles, you lift really heavy weights over a short period of time -- like a power lifter. If you want a more athletic build -- like a gymnast -- you lift weights or perform activities that create more sustained pressure.. Law of Un-Adaption. So what about the opposite ...

Your doctor will perform a physical evaluation and likely ask a few questions. You might also undergo a throat swab saliva sample to be tested for bacteria.

Using an air humidifier is also a good idea to make sure the air your breathing isnt dry and damaging. Most sore throats are viral in nature and no medication is recommended. However, some sore throats stemming from bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics. Your doctor will best know how to determine the right options for you.. ...
The strong association of de novo CNVs with ASD is consistent with such mutations being a primary cause in most cases rather than merely contributory. A further line of evidence to support this claim is the higher proportion of females among cases with de novo mutations, where the genders of patients consisted of 9 males and 5 females (1.8:1) compared with 163 males and 32 females (5:1) in our overall sample. This reduced gender ratio suggests that de novo CNVs that are detectable by our method have increased penetrance and, thus, contribute to disease more equally in females and males.. A lower rate of de novo mutation in multiplex families is also consistent with a causal role for the mutations reported in this study. An alternative hypothesis is that de novo CNVs are associated with autism indirectly, the consequence of a fragile-genome disorder in which many lesions in addition to the ones we detected occur due to an unknown environmental or heritable factor. We regard this alternative as ...

There was a study conducted by Dr. Madeline Behrendt on fertility and chiropractic care. In addition, the study was published in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research in the May 2003 issue. The study revealed that 14 out of 15 women were able to become pregnant after going through 2 to 24 months of chiropractic care. There was woman in the study who was told by doctors that she had only a 5% of conceiving a baby. It didnt matter if the woman used invasive procedures or fertility drugs. Those methods wouldnt increase the woman chances of having a baby. The woman didnt have a menstrual cycle for 12 years. In addition, the woman went through two months of chiropractic care and she started back with her period. In 4 months, the woman was able to conceive and had a healthy baby within 9 months. The doctor said her pregnancy was impossible ...
Coagulation disorders, also called clotting disorders, are a group of diseases where the blood does not clot properly. As a result, patients with coagulation disorders bleed for a long time after injuries, during menstruation, or with surgery. Depending on the severity of the disease, there may often be spontaneous bleeding into the joints, muscles or other parts of the body. A tendency to bleed comes from defects in the blood components such as coagulation proteins and platelets. The body produces 13 different coagulation proteins, which are also known as coagulation factors or clotting factors.If one or more of these factors is missing or not working properly, a coagulation disorder may result. Coagulation disorders are relatively rare and some of them, such as haemophilia, may be either congenital (hereditary) or acquired. Congenital coagulation disorders are caused by genetic defects and are already present at birth. Treatment in each case depends on the disease and its severity. With proper ...

DALLAS, Texas, April 13 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) - A collective group of animal organizations - Animal Owners Association of Texas, Professional Canine Breeder Association, East Texas Dog Lovers and individuals - have come together to stand against a bill that they say is unconscionable. While thousands of teachers, police and firemen are losing jobs, Texas lawmakers are proposing the passage of HB 1451 designed to implement a costly kennel inspection program, says Linda Rogers of Animal Owners Association of Texas. Its unconscionable for lawmakers to even consider trading scarce funds for human needs and services to implement costly kennel inspections. According to this collective, HB 1451 imposes numerous regulations that would not improve the health and welfare of dogs, but would unconstitutionally violate the rights of responsible breeders at great expense to Texas taxpayers. If passed, the bill is slated to increase state spending by 1.3 million per year. Even though the bill indicates ...

Charlotte Clarkes influence on the practice of social work and the betterment of the human condition is profound and extends beyond the geographic area of east Texas where she has lived since the late 1970s.

The founding of Holt House, Inc. of Tyler, Texas clearly demonstrates Ms. Clarkes sustained commitment to making a difference for a vulnerable segment of the population. Her vision was of a place where elderly persons could find assistance and support services to allow them to age in place. That vision developed from watching her own parents slowly disengage from activities, friends and support as they aged and became less able. In 1985, with her own personal resources and sheer will, Ms. ...
