Disorders caused by abnormalities in platelet count or function.
Non-nucleated disk-shaped cells formed in the megakaryocyte and found in the blood of all mammals. They are mainly involved in blood coagulation.
The attachment of PLATELETS to one another. This clumping together can be induced by a number of agents (e.g., THROMBIN; COLLAGEN) and is part of the mechanism leading to the formation of a THROMBUS.
A transcription factor that dimerizes with the cofactor CORE BINDING FACTOR BETA SUBUNIT to form core binding factor. It contains a highly conserved DNA-binding domain known as the runt domain. Runx1 is frequently mutated in human LEUKEMIAS.
The parent cells that give rise to cells in the MEGAKARYOCYTE lineage, and ultimately BLOOD PLATELETS.
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).
A familial coagulation disorder characterized by a prolonged bleeding time, unusually large platelets, and impaired prothrombin consumption.
A subnormal level of BLOOD PLATELETS.
The number of PLATELETS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.
A congenital bleeding disorder with prolonged bleeding time, absence of aggregation of platelets in response to most agents, especially ADP, and impaired or absent clot retraction. Platelet membranes are deficient in or have a defect in the glycoprotein IIb-IIIa complex (PLATELET GLYCOPROTEIN GPIIB-IIIA COMPLEX).

Genes that influence the PHENOTYPE both in the homozygous and the heterozygous state.
Surface glycoproteins on platelets which have a key role in hemostasis and thrombosis such as platelet adhesion and aggregation. Many of these are receptors.
A CXC chemokine that is found in the alpha granules of PLATELETS. The protein has a molecular size of 7800 kDa and can occur as a monomer, a dimer or a tetramer depending upon its concentration in solution. Platelet factor 4 has a high affinity for HEPARIN and is often found complexed with GLYCOPROTEINS such as PROTEIN C.
Clonal expansion of myeloid blasts in bone marrow, blood, and other tissue. Myeloid leukemias develop from changes in cells that normally produce NEUTROPHILS; BASOPHILS; EOSINOPHILS; and MONOCYTES.
An enzyme formed from PROTHROMBIN that converts FIBRINOGEN to FIBRIN.
A biochemical messenger and regulator, synthesized from the essential amino acid L-TRYPTOPHAN. In humans it is found primarily in the central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, and blood platelets. Serotonin mediates several important physiological functions including neurotransmission, gastrointestinal motility, hemostasis, and cardiovascular integrity. Multiple receptor families (RECEPTORS, SEROTONIN) explain the broad physiological actions and distribution of this biochemical mediator.
Adenosine 5'-(trihydrogen diphosphate). An adenine nucleotide containing two phosphate groups esterified to the sugar moiety at the 5'-position.
The transfer of blood platelets from a donor to a recipient or reinfusion to the donor.
Platelet membrane glycoprotein complex important for platelet adhesion and aggregation. It is an integrin complex containing INTEGRIN ALPHAIIB and INTEGRIN BETA3 which recognizes the arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD) sequence present on several adhesive proteins. As such, it is a receptor for FIBRINOGEN; VON WILLEBRAND FACTOR; FIBRONECTIN; VITRONECTIN; and THROMBOSPONDINS. A deficiency of GPIIb-IIIa results in GLANZMANN THROMBASTHENIA.
Platelet membrane glycoprotein complex essential for normal platelet adhesion and clot formation at sites of vascular injury. It is composed of three polypeptides, GPIb alpha, GPIb beta, and GPIX. Glycoprotein Ib functions as a receptor for von Willebrand factor and for thrombin. Congenital deficiency of the GPIb-IX complex results in Bernard-Soulier syndrome. The platelet glycoprotein GPV associates with GPIb-IX and is also absent in Bernard-Soulier syndrome.
A platelet-specific protein which is released when platelets aggregate. Elevated plasma levels have been reported after deep venous thrombosis, pre-eclampsia, myocardial infarction with mural thrombosis, and myeloproliferative disorders. Measurement of beta-thromboglobulin in biological fluids by radioimmunoassay is used for the diagnosis and assessment of progress of thromboembolic disorders.
A series of progressive, overlapping events, triggered by exposure of the PLATELETS to subendothelial tissue. These events include shape change, adhesiveness, aggregation, and release reactions. When carried through to completion, these events lead to the formation of a stable hemostatic plug.
A major affective disorder marked by severe mood swings (manic or major depressive episodes) and a tendency to remission and recurrence.
A phospholipid derivative formed by PLATELETS; BASOPHILS; NEUTROPHILS; MONOCYTES; and MACROPHAGES. It is a potent platelet aggregating agent and inducer of systemic anaphylactic symptoms, including HYPOTENSION; THROMBOCYTOPENIA; NEUTROPENIA; and BRONCHOCONSTRICTION.
Laboratory examination used to monitor and evaluate platelet function in a patient's blood.
A form of rapid-onset LIVER FAILURE, also known as fulminant hepatic failure, caused by severe liver injury or massive loss of HEPATOCYTES. It is characterized by sudden development of liver dysfunction and JAUNDICE. Acute liver failure may progress to exhibit cerebral dysfunction even HEPATIC COMA depending on the etiology that includes hepatic ISCHEMIA, drug toxicity, malignant infiltration, and viral hepatitis such as post-transfusion HEPATITIS B and HEPATITIS C.
Severe inability of the LIVER to perform its normal metabolic functions, as evidenced by severe JAUNDICE and abnormal serum levels of AMMONIA; BILIRUBIN; ALKALINE PHOSPHATASE; ASPARTATE AMINOTRANSFERASE; LACTATE DEHYDROGENASES; and albumin/globulin ratio.

The gene for May-Hegglin anomaly localizes to a <1-Mb region on chromosome 22q12.3-13.1. (1/259)

The May-Hegglin anomaly (MHA) is an autosomal dominant platelet disorder of unknown etiology. It is characterized by thrombocytopenia, giant platelets, and leukocyte inclusion bodies, and affected heterozygotes are predisposed to bleeding episodes. The MHA gene has recently been localized, by means of linkage analysis, to a 13.6-cM region on chromosome 22, and the complete chromosome 22 sequence has been reported. We recently performed a genome scan for the MHA gene in 29 members of a large, multigenerational Italian family, and we now confirm that the MHA locus is on chromosome 22q12. 3-13.1. The maximal two-point LOD score of 4.50 was achieved with the use of marker D22S283, at a recombination fraction of.05. Haplotype analysis narrowed the MHA critical region to 6.6 cM between markers D22S683 and D22S1177. It is of note that the chromosome 22 sequence allowed all markers to be ordered correctly, identified all the candidate genes and predicted genes, and specifically determined the physical size of the MHA region to be 0. 7 Mb. These results significantly narrow the region in which the MHA gene is located, and they represent the first use of chromosome 22 data to positionally clone a disease gene.  (+info)

Ultrastructural aspects of interactions of platelets with microcrystalline collagen. (2/259)

Whole blood anticoagulated with EDTA was stirred with high concentrations of a microcrystalline bovine dermal collagen preparation in order to study the interactions of blood cells with collagen at the ultrastructural level. Blood from normal subjects and from patients congenitally deficient in Factors VIII or XII or with thrombasthenia or von Willebrands disease was used. In scanning and transmission electron microscopic studies with blood from normal subjects and patients, platelets were seen to adhere to collagen, develop cell surface undulations, form pseudopods, and undergo morphologic changes suggestive of the release reaction. Although thrombasthenic platelets adhered to collagen, pseudopods formed by these cells were remarkably angulated and nodular. Relatively few von Willebrands platelets adhered to collagen, but those platelets that did adhere underwent the usual sequence of morphologic changes.  (+info)

Low-density lipoprotein activates the small GTPases Rap1 and Ral in human platelets. (3/259)

Physiological concentrations of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) sensitize blood platelets to alpha-thrombin- and collagen-induced secretion, and after prolonged contact trigger secretion independent of other agonists. Here we report that LDL activates the small GTPases Rap1 and Ral but not Ras, as assessed by specific precipitation of the GTP-bound enzymes. In unstirred suspensions, the inhibitor SB203580 blocks Rap1 activation by 60-70%, suggesting activation via p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase and a second, unidentified route. Inhibitors of cyclooxygenase (indomethacin) and the thromboxane A(2) (TxA(2)) receptor (SQ30741) induce complete inhibition, indicating that Rap1 activation is the result of TxA(2) formation. Stirring reveals a second, TxA(2)-independent Rap1 activation, which correlates quantitatively with a slow induction of dense granule secretion. Both pathways are unaffected by inhibitors of ligand binding to integrin alpha(IIb)beta(3). The results suggest that Rap1 and Ral, but not Ras, may take part in signalling routes initiated by LDL that initially enhance the sensitivity of platelets to other agonists and later trigger LDL-dependent secretion.  (+info)

Improved platelet counting using two-dimensional laser light scatter. (4/259)

Clinical management of platelet disorders depends on accurate platelet counts. We evaluated a new analytic approach for platelet counting based on improved platelet discrimination. Current automated counting methods provide accurate platelet counts for most samples but often are unable to discriminate platelets accurately from nonplatelet particles such as microcytic RBCs, RBC fragments, and cellular debris that may falsely elevate platelet counts. The new approach measures 2 light-scatter angles of platelets and nonplatelet particles as they pass through a laser beam. The volume and refractive index of each platelet and particle are derived from the light-scatter measurements using the Mie scattering theory. Together, these 2 measurements provide improved platelet discrimination compared with 1-dimensional methods. With its improved discrimination, 2-dimensional platelet analysis provides more accurate platelet counts in samples containing interfering particles and may contribute to more effective clinical management of patients with platelet disorders.  (+info)

Mediterranean macrothrombocytopenia. (5/259)

Platelet count, platelet size, and circulating platelet biomass concentration estimates made with an erythrocyte-calibrated electronic sizing system on EDTA-anticoagulated blood samples gave population medians and 95% ranges for 145 asymptomatic Mediterranean and 200 healthy Northern European subjects. The Mediterraneans had lower platelet counts [161,000 (89,000-290,000)/mul compared with 219,000 (148,000-323,000)/mul] and higher arithmetic mean volumes [17.8 (10.8-29.2) cu mum compared with 12.4 (9.9-15.6) cu mum], while the individual lognormal platelet size distribution profiles were comparable [geomatric standard deviations of 1.78 (1.60-1.98) against 1.70 (1.54-1.88)]; and the platelet biomass concentrations, given by count per microliter times mean volume times 10- minus 7 and expressed as a volumetric percentage of whole blood, were almost identical [0.286% (0.216%-0.379%) against 0.272% (0.201%-0.367%)]. Mediterranean macrothrombocytopenia is, therefore, considered a benign morphologic variant that requires differentiation from thrombocytopenias in which the circulating platelet biomass concentration is decreased.  (+info)

A pregnancy complicated with Fechtner syndrome: a case report. (6/259)

A 21-year-old woman was diagnosed with Fechtner syndrome at 15 weeks gestation. She had a familial history of this disorder; her mother, two siblings and maternal grandmother were also affected. She presented with neither bleeding from the genital tract nor symptoms suggestive of placental abruption. Labor progressed uneventfully and resulted in the birth of a healthy female infant weighing 3436 g at 41 weeks of gestation. The puerperium was uneventful for both mother and infant.  (+info)

Autosomal-dominant giant platelet syndromes: a hint of the same genetic defect as in Fechtner syndrome owing to a similar genetic linkage to chromosome 22q11-13. (7/259)

Families with 3 different syndromes characterized by autosomal dominant inheritance of low platelet count and giant platelets were studied. Fechtner syndrome is an autosomal-dominant variant of Alport syndrome manifested by nephritis, sensorineural hearing loss, and cataract formation in addition to macrothrombocytopenia and polymorphonuclear inclusion bodies. Sebastian platelet syndrome is an autosomal-dominant macrothrombocytopenia combined with neutrophil inclusions that differ from those found in May-Hegglin syndrome or Chediak-Higashi syndrome or the Dohle bodies described in patients with sepsis. These inclusions are, however, similar to those described in Fechtner syndrome. Other features of Alport syndrome, though, including deafness, cataracts, and nephritis, are absent in Sebastian platelet syndrome. Epstein syndrome is characterized by macrothrombocytopenia without neutrophil inclusions, in addition to the classical Alport manifestations-deafness, cataracts, and nephritis-and it is also inherited in an autosomal-dominant mode. We mapped the disease-causing gene to the long arm of chromosome 22 in an Italian family with Fechtner syndrome, 2 German families with the Sebastian platelet syndrome, and an American family with the Epstein syndrome. Four markers on chromosome 22q yielded an LOD score greater than 2.76. A maximal 2-point LOD score of 3.41 was obtained with the marker D22S683 at a recombination fraction of 0.00. Recombination analysis placed the disease-causing gene in a 3.37-Mb interval between the markers D22S284 and D22S693. The disease-causing gene interval in these 3 syndromes is similar to the interval described recently in an Israeli family with a slightly different Fechtner syndrome than the one described here. Recombination analysis of these 3 syndromes refines the interval containing the disease-causing gene from 5.5 Mb to 3.37 Mb. The clinical likeness and the similar interval containing the disease-causing gene suggest that the 3 different syndromes may arise from a similar genetic defect.  (+info)

Platelets from a patient heterozygous for the defect of P2CYC receptors for ADP have a secretion defect despite normal thromboxane A2 production and normal granule stores: further evidence that some cases of platelet 'primary secretion defect' are heterozygous for a defect of P2CYC receptors. (8/259)

Two unrelated patients with a congenital bleeding diathesis associated with a severe defect of the platelet ADP receptor coupled to adenylate cyclase (P2(CYC)) have been described so far. In one of them, platelet secretion was shown to be abnormal. We recently showed that platelets with the primary secretion defect (PSD; characterized by abnormal secretion but normal granule stores, thromboxane A(2) production, and ADP-induced primary wave of aggregation) have a moderate defect of P2(CYC). Therefore, the interaction of ADP with the full complement of its receptors seems to be essential for normal platelet secretion, and PSD patients may be heterozygotes for the congenital severe defect of P2(CYC). In this study, we describe 2 new related patients with a severe defect of P2(CYC) and the son of one of them, who is to be considered an obligate heterozygote for the defect. The 2 patients with the severe defect had lifelong histories of abnormal bleeding, prolonged bleeding times, abnormalities of platelet aggregation and secretion, lack of inhibition of adenylate cyclase by ADP, and a deficiency of platelet-binding sites for [(33)P]2 MeS-ADP (240 and 225 sites per platelet; normal range, 530 to 1102). The son of one of them had a mildly prolonged bleeding time and abnormalities of platelet aggregation and secretion similar to those found in patients with PSD. In addition, his platelets showed a moderate defect of binding sites for [(33)P]2 MeS-ADP (430 sites per platelet) and of adenylate cyclase inhibition by ADP. This study of a family with the platelet disorder characterized by a defect of the platelet P2(CYC) receptor supports our hypothesis that the full complement of the platelet ADP receptors is essential for normal platelet secretion and that some patients with the common, ill-defined diagnosis of PSD are actually heterozygous for the defect.  (+info)

Some common types of blood platelet disorders include:

1. Thrombocytopenia: This is a condition in which there are too few platelets in the blood. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including autoimmune disorders, bone marrow disorders, and certain medications.
2. Bernard-Soulier syndrome: This is a rare inherited disorder that affects the function of platelets and causes easy bruising and prolonged bleeding.
3. Glanzmann's thrombasthenia: This is a rare inherited disorder that affects the platelets' ability to clot properly, leading to excessive bleeding.
4. Platelet dysfunction: This can be caused by a variety of factors, including certain medications, infections, and autoimmune disorders. It can lead to excessive bleeding or prolonged bleeding after injury or surgery.
5. Congenital amegakaryocytic thrombocytopenia: This is a rare inherited disorder that affects the development of platelets in the bone marrow, leading to a lack of platelets in the blood.
6. Grey platelet syndrome: This is a rare inherited disorder that affects the structure of platelets, making them more prone to rupture and lead to easy bruising and prolonged bleeding.
7. Platelet-type von Willebrand disease: This is a mild bleeding disorder caused by a deficiency of von Willebrand factor, a protein that helps platelets stick together to form clots.
8. acquired platelet dysfunction: This can be caused by various conditions such as infections, medications, and autoimmune disorders.

These disorders can be diagnosed through blood tests, including a complete blood count (CBC) and a platelet function test. Treatment options vary depending on the specific disorder and may include medication, surgery, or lifestyle changes.

There are several types of hemorrhagic disorders, including:

1. Hemophilia: A genetic disorder that affects the blood's ability to clot and stop bleeding. People with hemophilia may experience spontaneous bleeding or bleeding after injury or surgery.
2. von Willebrand disease: A mild bleeding disorder caused by a deficiency of a protein called von Willebrand factor, which is important for blood clotting.
3. Platelet disorders: Disorders that affect the platelets, such as thrombocytopenia (low platelet count) or thrombocytosis (high platelet count).
4. Bleeding and clotting disorders caused by medications or drugs.
5. Hemorrhagic stroke: A type of stroke that is caused by bleeding in the brain.
6. Gastrointestinal bleeding: Bleeding in the digestive tract, which can be caused by a variety of factors such as ulcers, inflammation, or tumors.
7. Pulmonary hemorrhage: Bleeding in the lungs, which can be caused by a variety of factors such as pneumonia, injury, or tumors.
8. Retinal hemorrhage: Bleeding in the blood vessels of the retina, which can be caused by high blood pressure, diabetes, or other eye disorders.

Symptoms of hemorrhagic disorders can vary depending on the specific condition and the location of the bleeding. Common symptoms include bruising, petechiae (small red spots on the skin), nosebleeds, gum bleeding, and heavy menstrual periods. Treatment for hemorrhagic disorders depends on the underlying cause and may include medications, blood transfusions, or surgery.

The syndrome is caused by mutations in the ITGA2B gene, which encodes a protein called integrin alpha-IIb. This protein is essential for platelet adhesion and aggregation, which are important steps in the formation of blood clots. Individuals with BSS may experience mild to severe bleeding, including spontaneous bruising, petechiae (small red or purple spots on the skin), and prolonged bleeding after injury or surgery.

The symptoms of BSS can vary in severity and may include:

1. Mild to moderate bleeding episodes, which may be spontaneous or triggered by trauma or surgery.
2. Prolonged bleeding after injury or surgery.
3. Easy bruising, especially in the extremities (hands and feet).
4. Petechiae (small red or purple spots on the skin).
5. Nosebleeds.
6. Gingival bleeding (bleeding from the gums).
7. Post-injury bleeding.
8. Prolonged bleeding after dental extractions or other medical procedures.
9. Bleeding into the joints (hemarthrosis).

BSS is diagnosed based on a combination of clinical findings, laboratory tests, and genetic analysis. Treatment for BSS typically involves platelet transfusions and/or medications to improve platelet function. In severe cases, liver or bone marrow transplantation may be considered.

The prognosis for BSS varies depending on the severity of the disorder and the presence of other medical conditions. In general, individuals with mild forms of the syndrome may experience few complications and can lead relatively normal lives. However, those with more severe forms of the disorder may have a higher risk of bleeding complications and may require more frequent platelet transfusions or other treatments to manage their condition.

Genetic counseling is important for individuals with BSS, as the disorder can be inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. This means that a single copy of the mutated gene can cause the condition, and each child of an affected parent has a 50% chance of inheriting the mutation. Family members may wish to consider genetic testing to determine their risk of developing BSS.

Overall, BSS is a rare but potentially serious bleeding disorder that requires careful management and monitoring to prevent complications. With appropriate treatment and support, individuals with BSS can lead fulfilling lives and manage their condition effectively.

There are several possible causes of thrombocytopenia, including:

1. Immune-mediated disorders such as idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
2. Bone marrow disorders such as aplastic anemia or leukemia.
3. Viral infections such as HIV or hepatitis C.
4. Medications such as chemotherapy or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
5. Vitamin deficiencies, especially vitamin B12 and folate.
6. Genetic disorders such as Bernard-Soulier syndrome.
7. Sepsis or other severe infections.
8. Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), a condition where blood clots form throughout the body.
9. Postpartum thrombocytopenia, which can occur in some women after childbirth.

Symptoms of thrombocytopenia may include easy bruising, petechiae (small red or purple spots on the skin), and prolonged bleeding from injuries or surgical sites. Treatment options depend on the underlying cause but may include platelet transfusions, steroids, immunosuppressive drugs, and in severe cases, surgery.

In summary, thrombocytopenia is a condition characterized by low platelet counts that can increase the risk of bleeding and bruising. It can be caused by various factors, and treatment options vary depending on the underlying cause.

The term "thrombasthenia" comes from the Greek words "thrombos," meaning clot, and "basis," meaning foundation. It was first used by the British physician Sir William Osler in the late 19th century to describe a group of rare bleeding disorders characterized by abnormal platelet function.

There are three main types of thrombasthenia:

1. Bernard-Soulier syndrome: This is the most common type of thrombasthenia and is caused by a defect in the gene that codes for the protein known as platelet membrane glycoprotein (PMG) IIb. People with this condition have large, fragile platelets that are prone to bleeding.
2. Glanzmann's thrombasthenia: This is a rare type of thrombasthenia caused by a defect in the gene that codes for the protein known as platelet membrane glycoprotein (PMG) IIIa. People with this condition have small, irregular platelets that are unable to form proper blood clots.
3. Gray platelet syndrome: This is a rare type of thrombasthenia caused by a defect in the gene that codes for the protein known as alpha-granule membrane protein (AGM). People with this condition have small, gray-colored platelets that are prone to bleeding.

Thrombasthenia can be diagnosed through blood tests that evaluate platelet function and genetic testing to identify the specific defect responsible for the disorder. Treatment typically involves avoiding medications that can exacerbate bleeding, using platelet transfusions to increase platelet numbers, and in some cases, undergoing surgery to repair or remove affected blood vessels.

AML is a fast-growing and aggressive form of leukemia that can spread to other parts of the body through the bloodstream. It is most commonly seen in adults over the age of 60, but it can also occur in children.

There are several subtypes of AML, including:

1. Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL): This is a subtype of AML that is characterized by the presence of a specific genetic abnormality called the PML-RARA fusion gene. It is usually responsive to treatment with chemotherapy and has a good prognosis.
2. Acute myeloid leukemia, not otherwise specified (NOS): This is the most common subtype of AML and does not have any specific genetic abnormalities. It can be more difficult to treat and has a poorer prognosis than other subtypes.
3. Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML): This is a subtype of AML that is characterized by the presence of too many immature white blood cells called monocytes in the blood and bone marrow. It can progress slowly over time and may require ongoing treatment.
4. Juvenile myeloid leukemia (JMML): This is a rare subtype of AML that occurs in children under the age of 18. It is characterized by the presence of too many immature white blood cells called blasts in the blood and bone marrow.

The symptoms of AML can vary depending on the subtype and the severity of the disease, but they may include:

* Fatigue
* Weakness
* Shortness of breath
* Pale skin
* Easy bruising or bleeding
* Swollen lymph nodes, liver, or spleen
* Bone pain
* Headache
* Confusion or seizures

AML is diagnosed through a combination of physical examination, medical history, and diagnostic tests such as:

1. Complete blood count (CBC): This test measures the number and types of cells in the blood, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
2. Bone marrow biopsy: This test involves removing a small sample of bone marrow tissue from the hipbone or breastbone to examine under a microscope for signs of leukemia cells.
3. Genetic testing: This test can help identify specific genetic abnormalities that are associated with AML.
4. Immunophenotyping: This test uses antibodies to identify the surface proteins on leukemia cells, which can help diagnose the subtype of AML.
5. Cytogenetics: This test involves staining the bone marrow cells with dyes to look for specific changes in the chromosomes that are associated with AML.

Treatment for AML typically involves a combination of chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and in some cases, bone marrow transplantation. The specific treatment plan will depend on the subtype of AML, the patient's age and overall health, and other factors. Some common treatments for AML include:

1. Chemotherapy: This involves using drugs to kill cancer cells. The most commonly used chemotherapy drugs for AML are cytarabine (Ara-C) and anthracyclines such as daunorubicin (DaunoXome) and idarubicin (Idamycin).
2. Targeted therapy: This involves using drugs that specifically target the genetic abnormalities that are causing the cancer. Examples of targeted therapies used for AML include midostaurin (Rydapt) and gilteritinib (Xospata).
3. Bone marrow transplantation: This involves replacing the diseased bone marrow with healthy bone marrow from a donor. This is typically done after high-dose chemotherapy to destroy the cancer cells.
4. Supportive care: This includes treatments to manage symptoms and side effects of the disease and its treatment, such as anemia, infection, and bleeding. Examples of supportive care for AML include blood transfusions, antibiotics, and platelet transfusions.
5. Clinical trials: These are research studies that involve testing new treatments for AML. Participating in a clinical trial may give patients access to innovative therapies that are not yet widely available.

It's important to note that the treatment plan for AML is highly individualized, and the specific treatments used will depend on the patient's age, overall health, and other factors. Patients should work closely with their healthcare team to determine the best course of treatment for their specific needs.

Bipolar Disorder Types:

There are several types of bipolar disorder, including:

1. Bipolar I Disorder: One or more manic episodes with or without depressive episodes.
2. Bipolar II Disorder: At least one major depressive episode and one hypomanic episode (a less severe form of mania).
3. Cyclothymic Disorder: Periods of hypomania and depression that last at least 2 years.
4. Other Specified Bipolar and Related Disorders: Symptoms that do not meet the criteria for any of the above types.
5. Unspecified Bipolar and Related Disorders: Symptoms that do not meet the criteria for any of the above types, but there is still a noticeable impact on daily life.

Bipolar Disorder Causes:

The exact cause of bipolar disorder is unknown, but it is believed to involve a combination of genetic, environmental, and neurobiological factors. Some potential causes include:

1. Genetics: Individuals with a family history of bipolar disorder are more likely to develop the condition.
2. Brain structure and function: Imbalances in neurotransmitters and abnormalities in brain structure have been found in individuals with bipolar disorder.
3. Hormonal imbalances: Imbalances in hormones such as serotonin, dopamine, and cortisol have been linked to bipolar disorder.
4. Life events: Traumatic events or significant changes in life circumstances can trigger episodes of mania or depression.
5. Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as multiple sclerosis or stroke, can increase the risk of developing bipolar disorder.

Bipolar Disorder Symptoms:

The symptoms of bipolar disorder can vary depending on the individual and the specific type of episode they are experiencing. Some common symptoms include:

1. Manic episodes: Increased energy, reduced need for sleep, impulsivity, and grandiosity.
2. Depressive episodes: Feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest in activities.
3. Mixed episodes: A combination of manic and depressive symptoms.
4. Hypomanic episodes: Less severe than full-blown mania, but still disrupt daily life.
5. Rapid cycling: Experiencing four or more episodes within a year.
6. Melancholic features: Feeling sad, hopeless, and worthless.
7. Atypical features: Experiencing mania without elevated mood or grandiosity.
8. Mood instability: Rapid changes in mood throughout the day.
9. Anxiety symptoms: Restlessness, feeling on edge, and difficulty concentrating.
10. Sleep disturbances: Difficulty falling or staying asleep, or oversleeping.
11. Substance abuse: Using drugs or alcohol to cope with symptoms.
12. Suicidal thoughts or behaviors: Having thoughts of harming oneself or taking actions that could lead to death.

It's important to note that not everyone with bipolar disorder will experience all of these symptoms, and some people may experience additional symptoms not listed here. Additionally, the severity and frequency of symptoms can vary widely between individuals.


1. Viral hepatitis (hepatitis A, B, or C)
2. Overdose of medications or supplements
3. Toxic substances (e.g., alcohol, drugs, or chemicals)
4. Sepsis or other infections that spread to the liver
5. Certain autoimmune disorders (e.g., hemochromatosis, Wilson's disease)
6. Cancer that has metastasized to the liver
7. Blood vessel blockage or clotting in the liver
8. Lack of blood flow to the liver


1. Jaundice (yellowing of skin and eyes)
2. Nausea and vomiting
3. Abdominal swelling and discomfort
4. Fatigue, weakness, and loss of appetite
5. Confusion or altered mental state
6. Seizures or coma
7. Pale or clay-colored stools
8. Dark urine


1. Physical examination and medical history
2. Laboratory tests (e.g., liver function tests, blood tests, imaging studies)
3. Biopsy of the liver tissue (to rule out other liver diseases)


1. Supportive care (fluids, nutrition, and medication to manage symptoms)
2. Addressing underlying causes (e.g., stopping alcohol or drug use, treating infections)
3. Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), a procedure that creates a new pathway for blood to flow through the liver
4. Liver transplantation (in severe cases where other treatments have failed)

The prognosis for acute liver failure depends on the underlying cause of the condition and the severity of the liver damage. In general, the earlier the diagnosis and treatment, the better the outcome. However, acute liver failure can be a life-threatening condition, and the mortality rate is high, especially in cases where there is severe liver damage or no available donor liver for transplantation.

There are several causes of liver failure, including:

1. Alcohol-related liver disease: Prolonged and excessive alcohol consumption can damage liver cells, leading to inflammation, scarring, and eventually liver failure.
2. Viral hepatitis: Hepatitis A, B, and C are viral infections that can cause inflammation and damage to the liver, leading to liver failure.
3. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD): A condition where there is an accumulation of fat in the liver, leading to inflammation and scarring.
4. Drug-induced liver injury: Certain medications can cause liver damage and failure, especially when taken in high doses or for extended periods.
5. Genetic disorders: Certain inherited conditions, such as hemochromatosis and Wilson's disease, can cause liver damage and failure.
6. Acute liver failure: This is a sudden and severe loss of liver function, often caused by medication overdose or other toxins.
7. Chronic liver failure: A gradual decline in liver function over time, often caused by cirrhosis or NAFLD.

Symptoms of liver failure can include:

1. Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)
2. Fatigue
3. Loss of appetite
4. Nausea and vomiting
5. Abdominal pain
6. Confusion and altered mental state
7. Easy bruising and bleeding

Diagnosis of liver failure is typically made through a combination of physical examination, medical history, and laboratory tests, such as blood tests to check for liver enzymes and bilirubin levels. Imaging tests, such as ultrasound and CT scans, may also be used to evaluate the liver.

Treatment of liver failure depends on the underlying cause and severity of the condition. In some cases, a liver transplant may be necessary. Other treatments may include medications to manage symptoms, such as nausea and pain, and supportive care to maintain nutrition and hydration. In severe cases, hospitalization may be required to monitor and treat complications.

Prevention of liver failure is important, and this can be achieved by:

1. Avoiding alcohol or drinking in moderation
2. Maintaining a healthy weight and diet
3. Managing underlying medical conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure
4. Avoiding exposure to toxins, such as certain medications and environmental chemicals
5. Getting vaccinated against hepatitis A and B
6. Practicing safe sex to prevent the spread of hepatitis B and C.

This condition is most commonly seen in people with advanced liver disease, such as cirrhosis or liver cancer. It can also be caused by other conditions that affect the liver, such as hepatitis or portal hypertension.

Symptoms of hepatic encephalopathy can include confusion, disorientation, slurred speech, memory loss, and difficulty with coordination and balance. In severe cases, it can lead to coma or even death.

Diagnosis of hepatic encephalopathy is typically made through a combination of physical examination, medical history, and diagnostic tests such as blood tests and imaging studies. Treatment options include medications to reduce the production of ammonia in the gut, antibiotics to treat any underlying infections, and transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS) to improve liver function. In severe cases, a liver transplant may be necessary.

Overall, hepatic encephalopathy is a serious condition that can have significant impact on quality of life and survival in people with advanced liver disease. Early detection and prompt treatment are essential to prevent complications and improve outcomes.

The definition of DILI has been revised several times over the years, but the most recent definition was published in 2013 by the International Consortium for DILI Research (ICDCR). According to this definition, DILI is defined as:

"A clinically significant alteration in liver function that is caused by a medication or other exogenous substance, and is not related to underlying liver disease. The alteration may be biochemical, morphological, or both, and may be acute or chronic."

The ICDCR definition includes several key features of DILI, including:

1. Clinically significant alteration in liver function: This means that the liver damage must be severe enough to cause symptoms or signs of liver dysfunction, such as jaundice, nausea, vomiting, or abdominal pain.
2. Caused by a medication or other exogenous substance: DILI is triggered by exposure to certain drugs or substances that are not related to underlying liver disease.
3. Not related to underlying liver disease: This means that the liver damage must not be caused by an underlying condition such as hepatitis B or C, alcoholic liver disease, or other genetic or metabolic disorders.
4. May be acute or chronic: DILI can occur as a sudden and severe injury (acute DILI) or as a slower and more insidious process (chronic DILI).

The ICDCR definition provides a standardized way of defining and diagnosing DILI, which is important for clinicians and researchers to better understand the cause of liver damage in patients who are taking medications. It also helps to identify the drugs or substances that are most likely to cause liver injury and to develop strategies for preventing or treating DILI.
