Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.Dermatomyositis: A subacute or chronic inflammatory disease of muscle and skin, marked by proximal muscle weakness and a characteristic skin rash. The illness occurs with approximately equal frequency in children and adults. The skin lesions usually take the form of a purplish rash (or less often an exfoliative dermatitis) involving the nose, cheeks, forehead, upper trunk, and arms. The disease is associated with a complement mediated intramuscular microangiopathy, leading to loss of capillaries, muscle ischemia, muscle-fiber necrosis, and perifascicular atrophy.

The Pl(A2) polymorphism of integrin beta(3) enhances outside-in signaling and adhesive functions. (1/63)

Genetic factors are believed to influence the development of arterial thromboses. Because integrin alpha(IIb)beta(3) plays a crucial role in thrombus formation, we analyzed receptor adhesive properties using Chinese hamster ovary and human kidney embryonal 293 cells overexpressing the Pl(A1) or Pl(A2) polymorphic forms of alpha(IIb)beta(3). Soluble fibrinogen binding was no different between Pl(A1) and Pl(A2) cells, either in a resting state or when alpha(IIb)beta(3) was activated with anti-LIBS6. Pl(A1) and Pl(A2) cells bound equivalently to immobilized fibronectin. In contrast, significantly more Pl(A2) cells bound to immobilized fibrinogen in an alpha(IIb)beta(3)-dependent manner than did Pl(A1) cells. Disruption of the actin cytoskeleton by cytochalasin D abolished the increased binding of Pl(A2) cells. Compared with Pl(A1) cells, Pl(A2) cells exhibited a greater extent of polymerized actin and cell spreading, enhanced tyrosine phosphorylation of pp125(FAK), and greater fibrin clot retraction. These adhesion differences appear to depend on a signaling mechanism sensitive to receptor occupancy. Thus, the Pl(A2) polymorphism altered integrin-mediated functions of adhesion, spreading, actin cytoskeleton rearrangement, and clot retraction.  (+info)

Active GPIIb-IIIa conformations that link ligand interaction with cytoskeletal reorganization. (2/63)

Glycoprotein (GP) IIb-IIIa plays a critical role in platelet aggregation and platelet-mediated clot retraction. This study examined the intramolecular relationship between GPIIb-IIIa activation and fibrinogen binding, platelet aggregation, and platelet-mediated clot retraction. To distinguish between different high-affinity activation states of GPIIb-IIIa, the properties of an antibody (D3) specific for GPIIIa that induces GPIIb-IIIa binding to adhesive protein molecules and yet completely inhibits clot retraction were used. Clot retraction inhibition by D3 was not due to altered platelet-fibrin interaction; however, combination treatments of D3 and adenosine diphosphate (ADP) inhibited full-scale aggregation and decreased the amounts of GPIIb-IIIa and talin incorporated into the core cytoskeletons. Morphologic evaluation of the D3/ADP aggregates showed platelets that were activated but to a lesser extent when compared to ADP only. ADP addition to platelets caused an increase in the number of D3 binding sites indicating that ligand had bound to the GPIIb-IIIa receptor. These data suggest that high-affinity GPIIb-IIIa- mediated ligand binding can be separated mechanistically from GPIIb-IIIa-mediated clot retraction and that clot retraction requires additional signaling through GPIIb-IIIa after ligand binding. The conformation recognized by D3 represents the expression of a GPIIb-IIIa activation state that participates in full-scale platelet aggregation, cytoskeletal reorganization, and clot retraction.  (+info)

A structural and dynamic investigation of the facilitating effect of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors in dissolving platelet-rich clots. (3/63)

Glycoprotein IIb/IIIa (GP IIb/IIIa) inhibitors were shown recently to facilitate the rate and the extent of pharmacological thrombolysis. However, their synergistic potential with rtPA in dissolving thrombotic vaso-occlusions is not fully understood. We have therefore developed a dynamic and structural approach for analysis of fibrinolysis to assess the inhibiting effect of platelets and the facilitating effect of GPIIb/IIIa inhibitors in dissolving platelet-rich clots (PRCs). Fluorescent rtPA was used to study the architecture of PRCs, to follow the progression of the rtPA binding front, and to measure the lysis-front velocity using confocal microscopy. Fibrinolysis resistance of PRCs was related to a reduction of both rtPA binding and lysis-front velocities of platelet-rich areas compared with platelet-poor areas (2.4 +/- 0.2 versus 3.5 +/- 0.4 microm/min for rtPA binding velocity, P=0.04, and 1.2 +/- 0.6 versus 2.8 +/- 0.2 microm/min for lysis-front velocity, P=0.008, in platelet-rich and platelet-poor areas, respectively). Fibrinolysis appeared heterogeneous, leaving platelet-rich areas un-lysed. Adding pharmacological concentrations of abciximab (0.068 micromol/L) or eptifibatide (1 micromol/L) before clotting decreased the average surface of platelet-rich areas by 64% (P=0.0005) and 72% (P=0.0007), respectively. The resulting equalization of rtPA binding rate and rtPA binding-front velocity between platelet-rich and platelet-poor areas led to a 3-fold increase of the lysis-front velocity in platelet-rich areas of either abciximab-PRC (P=0.006) or eptifibatide-PRC (P=0.03). The overall lysis rate of treated-PRC was increased by 74% compared with control-PRC (P<0.01). These results demonstrate that fibrinolysis resistance of PRCs is related primarily to the heterogeneity in the clot structure between platelet-rich and platelet-poor areas. GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors facilitate the rate and the extent of fibrinolysis by improving rtPA binding velocity and, subsequently, the lysis rate in platelet-rich areas. These findings provide new insights on the synergistic potential of GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors and fibrinolytic agents.  (+info)

A naturally occurring Tyr143His alpha IIb mutation abolishes alpha IIb beta 3 function for soluble ligands but retains its ability for mediating cell adhesion and clot retraction: comparison with other mutations causing ligand-binding defects. (4/63)

The molecular basis for the interaction between a prototypic non-I-domain integrin, alpha(IIb)beta(3), and its ligands remains to be determined. In this study, we have characterized a novel missense mutation (Tyr143His) in alpha(IIb) associated with a variant of Glanzmann thrombasthenia. Osaka-12 platelets expressed a substantial amount of alpha(IIb)beta(3) (36%-41% of control) but failed to bind soluble ligands, including a high-affinity alpha(IIb)beta(3)-specific peptidomimetic antagonist. Sequence analysis revealed that Osaka-12 is a compound heterozygote for a single (521)T>C substitution leading to a Tyr143His substitution in alpha(IIb) and for the null expression of alpha(IIb) mRNA from the maternal allele. Given that Tyr143 is located in the W3 4-1 loop of the beta-propeller domain of alpha(IIb), we examined the effects of Tyr143His or Tyr143Ala substitution on the expression and function of alpha(IIb)beta(3) and compared them with KO (Arg-Thr insertion between 160 and 161 residues of alpha(IIb)) and with the Asp163Ala mutation located in the same loop by using 293 cells. Each of them abolished the binding function of alpha(IIb)beta(3) for soluble ligands without disturbing alpha(IIb)beta(3) expression. Because immobilized fibrinogen and fibrin are higher affinity/avidity ligands for alpha(IIb)beta(3), we performed cell adhesion and clot retraction assays. In sharp contrast to KO mutation and Asp163Ala alpha(IIb)beta(3), Tyr143His alpha(IIb)beta(3)-expressing cells still had some ability for cell adhesion and clot retraction. Thus, the functional defect induced by Tyr143His alpha(IIb) is likely caused by its allosteric effect rather than by a defect in the ligand-binding site itself. These detailed structure-function analyses provide better understanding of the ligand-binding sites in integrins.  (+info)

Similarities between platelet contraction and cellular motility during mitosis: role of platelet microtubules in clot retraction. (5/63)

The effects of inhibitors of mitosis, energy metabolism and protein synthesis on clot retraction were investigated. The results show that (1) Incubation of colchicine (0-01-0-1 mM) with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) inhibits the subsequent retraction of clots derived from diluted PRP. (2) Inhibition of clot retraction by high concentrations of colchicine (up to 40 mM) can be overcome by increasing the platelet concentration in the system. (3) Incubation of clots in colchicine or 80% D2O solutions inhibits their retraction. Exposure of partially retracted clots to these agents is without effect. (4) Hydrostatic pressure retards clot retraction. (5) Incubation of PRP with either 2-deoxy-D-glucose or antimycin alone does not affect clot retraction, but a combination of these agents is inhibitory. (6) Clot retraction is not inhibited by puromycin or cycloheximide. (7) Platelets in retracting clots have constricted regions containing microfilaments and pseudopods containing microtubules. Fibrin strands are progressively condensed around the constricted regions as retraction advances. (8) The development of platelet constriction, platelet pseudopods and the intracellular microfilaments are delayed in colchicinized clots, corresponding to the retardation of retraction. Following the initial delay of retraction colchicinized clots, like controls, show condensation of fibrin strands adjacent to these constricted areas of platelets containing microfilaments. The formation of pseudopods is impaired and no microtubules are found in platelets in the presence of colchicine. The above results suggest that the thrombin-induced platelet contraction during clot retraction is a coordinated movement, which, under optimal conditions involves both microtubules and microfilaments. The contraction of microfilaments produces the constriction of platelets and brings about clot retraction by reducing the angle between fibrin strands. Platelet microtubules are related to the development of pseudopods and play a supplementary role in facilitating microfilament-mediated cellular constriction. The similarities between platelet contraction and cellular motility in mitosis is discussed.  (+info)

Identification of a new congenital defect of platelet function characterized by severe impairment of platelet responses to adenosine diphosphate. (6/63)

This study characterizes a congenital hemorrhagic disorder caused by a platelet function defect with the following features: (1) severely impaired platelet aggregation and fibrinogen or von Willebrand factor (vWF) binding induced by adenosine diphosphate (ADP); (2) defective aggregation, release reaction, and fibrinogen or vWF binding induced by other agonists; (3) normal aggregation and release reaction induced by high concentrations of thrombin or collagen; (4) no further inhibition by ADP scavengers of aggregation, release reaction, and fibrinogen or vWF binding, comparable with those observed for normal platelets in the presence of ADP scavengers; (5) normal membrane glycoprotein (GP) composition and normal binding of the anti-GP IIb/IIIa monoclonal antibody 10E5; (6) no acceleration by ADP of binding of the anti-GP IIb/IIIa monoclonal antibody 7E3; (7) normal platelet-fibrin clot retraction if induced by thrombin or reptilase plus epinephrine, absent if induced by reptilase plus ADP; (8) no inhibition by ADP of the prostaglandin E1-induced increase in platelet cyclic adenosine monophosphate, but normal inhibition by epinephrine; (9) defective mobilization of cytoplasmic Ca2+ by ADP; (10) normal binding of 14C-ADP to fresh platelets, but defective binding of [2-3H]-ADP to formalin-fixed platelets. This congenital platelet function defect is characterized by selective impairment of platelet responses to ADP, caused by either decreased number of platelet ADP receptors or abnormalities of the signal-transduction pathway of platelet activation by ADP.  (+info)

Inhibition of clot lysis and decreased binding of tissue-type plasminogen activator as a consequence of clot retraction. (7/63)

Tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) is less active in vivo and in vitro against clots that are enriched in platelets, even at therapeutic concentrations. The release of radioactivity from 125I-fibrin-labeled clots was decreased by 47% 6 hours after the addition of t-PA 400 U/mL when formed in platelet-rich versus platelet-poor plasma. This difference was not due to the release of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) by platelets. Thus, the fibrinolytic activity of t-PA in the supernatant was similar in the two preparations and fibrin autography demonstrated only a minor degree of t-PA-PAI-1 complex formation. Furthermore, a similar platelet-dependent reduction in clot lysis was seen with a t-PA mutant resistant to inhibition by PAI-1. The reduction in t-PA activity correlated with a decrease in t-PA binding to platelet-enriched clot (60% +/- 3% v platelet-poor clot, n = 5). This reduction in binding was also shown using t-PA treated with the chloromethylketone, D-Phe-Pro-Arg-CH2Cl (PPACK) (36% +/- 13%, n = 3), and with S478A, a mutant t-PA in which the active site serine at position 478 has been substituted by alanine (43% +/- 6%, n = 3). In contrast, fixed platelets and platelet supernatants had no effect on the binding or lytic activity of t-PA. Pretreatment with cytochalasin D 1 mumol/L, which inhibits clot retraction, also abolished the platelet-induced inhibition of lysis and t-PA binding by platelets. These data suggest that platelets inhibit clot lysis at therapeutic concentrations of t-PA as a consequence of clot retraction and decreased access of fibrinolytic proteins.  (+info)

Integrin-dependent interaction of lipid rafts with the actin cytoskeleton in activated human platelets. (8/63)

Dynamic connections between actin filaments and the plasma membrane are crucial for the regulation of blood platelet functions. Protein complexes associated with alphaIIbbeta3 integrin-based cytoskeleton structures are known to play a role in these processes. However, mechanisms involving lateral organizations of the plasma membrane remain to be investigated. Here, we demonstrate that a large fraction of platelet lipid rafts specifically associates with the actin cytoskeleton upon activation. This association was inhibited by antagonists of fibrinogen-alphaIIbbeta3 binding and did not occur in type I Glanzman's thrombasthenic platelets. The raft-cytoskeleton interaction is a reversible process correlating with the intensity and stability of platelet aggregation. Although only a minor fraction of alphaIIbbeta3 was recovered in rafts upon activation, this integrin specifically upregulated the level of PtdIns(4,5)P2 in membrane microdomains and induced the recruitment of several actin-modulating proteins known to directly or indirectly interact with this lipid. Controlled disruption of rafts did not affect alphaIIbbeta3-mediated platelet aggregation in response to high concentrations of thrombin but significantly inhibited fibrin clot retraction. We propose that rafts participate in the organization of membrane-cytoskeleton interactions where alphaIIbbeta3-mediated tension forces apply during the late phase of platelet activation.  (+info)

Hyperattenuating signs are observed on unenhanced CT scans when an acute thrombus has formed in a blood vessel. It can be seen in various vascular diseases, including cerebral infarction; pulmonary thromboembolism; aortic dissection with a thrombosed false lumen; deep venous thrombosis; and, of course, CVST.8⇓-10 The increase in attenuation is caused by clot retraction, eliminating water and thereby raising the concentrations of red blood cells and hemoglobin. This mechanism results in increased attenuation of the thrombus to 60-90 HU. As time passes, the thrombus ages and is rechanneled so that the red blood cells and hemoglobin are degraded. Subsequently, the attenuation gradually decreases for approximately 7-14 days, at which point the thrombi cannot be differentiated from normal blood or may even appear hypoattenuating relative to blood.11. Hyperattenuating signs can serve as unique findings indicating an acute stage, at a time when treatment is most likely to be effective and to have a ...

There are many different types of cells, chemicals and particles circulating in the bloodstream. Some of these substances exist for the purpose of clotting. When activated, these substances trigger a cascade of reactions that leads to the formation of a blood clot. It plugs the break in the blood vessel and bleeding should therefore stop. Eventually the body heals the break in the blood vessel and dissolves the clot.. Although a blood clot should form only when there is a break in a blood vessel, sometimes it can form within the blood vessel (artery or vein) even if it is not injured. A blood clot is more correctly known as a thrombus. As the thrombus gets bigger it may reduce the flow of blood and eventually block off this flow altogether. Depending on where it occurs, it can have different effects.. If the blood flow to the vital organs like the lungs, heart or brain is obstructed then it can be deadly because even minor injury to these organs can result in death. Not all blood clots that ...
A retraction mechanism allows the full distal retraction of the firing drive from various positions. The retraction mechanism has been developed for use with a hand held surgical apparatus. An embodiment of the retraction mechanism includes a drive member, a first pulley, a second pulley, and a firing drive. The drive mechanism is configured to be driven by a motor. The first pulley is configured to rotate when the motor drives the drive mechanism. The second pulley is movable relative to the first pulley between a proximal position and a distal position. The firing drive is movable relative to the first pulley between proximal and distal positions. In operation, the first pulley rotates in a first direction in response to a distal translation of the firing drive and wherein the firing drive moves proximally upon rotation of the first pulley in a second direction.

A major finding of our present study is that integrin α4β7 can be activated by selectively breaking two conserved disulfide bonds, α4C589-C594 and β7C494-C526, located at the knees of integrin. Interestingly, integrin activated by this mechanism has a unique active conformation that is different from the global conformation induced by Mn2+ stimulation. In addition, activated α4β7 integrin can spontaneously cluster on the cell membrane and trigger integrin outside-in signaling independent of ligand binding.. All integrins contain a large number of disulfide bonds that are generally believed to facilitate protein folding and stabilize three-dimensional structures (Calvete et al., 1991). The two disulfide bonds at the knees of integrin α4β7 are exposed to solution, making them easily accessible to reducing agents. In this study, these two disulfide bonds were selectively reduced by 0.1 mM DTT, which induced the activation of integrin α4β7 and triggered outside-in signaling. Accumulating ...

The ability for blood to clot is a mechanism for keeping us from bleeding to death when we receive minor injuries. People with the genetic condition hemophilia lack the substance in their blood that spurs it to clot. This can lead to death at a young age due to hemorrhage. When we first receive a cut, platelets in our blood collect at the site to form a temporary barrier. Then these platelets send out chemical signals that cause the bloods clotting factors to replace the platelets with fibrin, which is tougher and more durable than the platelet barrier. When the bleeding is sufficiently stopped, anti-clotting proteins are then released that stop the clot from growing larger and spreading.. However, sometimes blood clots develop in an abnormal fashion or break off and travel to other parts of the body where they can cause serious medical problems, such as a stroke or heart attack. More than one in every thousand people develops a venous thrombosis (blood clot in a vein), which may prove fatal. ...
A clot is a semi-solid substance that blood forms, especially when it is in air. When a person bleeds, the blood turns into a clot at the injury. A blood clot is also called a thrombus. The process is called coagulation. If a person gets a cut on their body, that person may bleed. To stop the bleeding, the human body does several things. First, the brain orders the liver to produce chemicals that will help the clot to form. When the chemicals released by the liver arrive at the injury, the coagulation begins. In the mean time, the brain also lessens the blood flow near the injury (by tightening the veins and arteries in that area), so that not as much blood is lost. There is a limit to how quickly a clot can form. If the cut is very deep and the person bleeds too much, a clot may not be able to form and a lot of blood may be lost. ...

The disease atherosclerosis involves the buildup of fatty tissue within arterial walls, creating unstable structures known as plaques. These plaques grow until they burst, rupturing the wall and causing the formation of a blood clot within the artery. These clots also grow until they block blood flow; in the case of the coronary artery, this can cause a heart attack. New research from the University of Pennsylvania has shown that clots forming under arterial-flow conditions have an unexpected ability to sense the surrounding blood moving over them. If the flow stops, the clot senses the decrease in flow and this triggers a contraction similar to that of a muscle. The contraction squeezes out water, making the clot denser. Better understanding of the clotting dynamics that occur in atherosclerosis, as opposed to the dynamics at play in closing a wound, could lead to more effective drugs for heart attack prevention. The research was conducted by graduate student Ryan Muthard and Dr. Scott Diamond, ...
Blood clot. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a blood clot. Red blood cells (erythrocytes, red) are seen trapped in filaments of fibrin protein (brown). Blood clotting is the solidification of blood that occurs when blood vessels are damaged, limiting blood loss. Blood vessel damage activates blood cells called platelets, which in turn help to stimulate the formation of fibrin filaments at the site of injury. These filaments enmesh platelets and red and white blood cells, contracting around them to form a solid clot. Inappropriate clotting is a major cause of strokes and heart attacks.

The study, which will be reported Sept. 26 at the 2011 European Multidisciplinary Cancer Congress in Stockholm, found that as many as one in five patients risk developing a blood clot called venous thromboembolism, or VTE, within a year of getting treatment for some types of cancers.. In up to 2 percent of cases the complication is deadly. Clots that form in veins deep in the legs or pelvis can travel to the arteries of the lungs and block blood flow. VTEs are also costly. Cancer patients who develop the clots require medication and hospitalizations that contribute to an average care bill of $110,362, compared to $77,984 for those who do not have VTEs, the study authors reported.. "Direct medical costs of healthcare are significantly greater among cancer patients experiencing a VTE and still do not include caregiver expenses, out of pocket costs and the intangible costs of pain and suffering," said lead author Gary H. Lyman, M.D., M.P.H., a professor of medicine and director of the Comparative ...

The new-generation devices have an improved design that allows them to more easily surround and remove the clot. The first clot retrieval device for stroke was invented at UCLA.. "When it comes to treating stroke, every minute counts," said study senior author Dr. Jeffrey Saver, director of the UCLA Stroke Center. "The faster you can restore the blood flow to normal, the better the chances of a good recovery. Our study shows that the currently used stent clot retrieval devices are a tremendous improvement from the older technologies." Saver said a number of changes should be implemented immediately across the entire spectrum of stroke care - including improving public awareness about the signs and symptoms of stroke, educating emergency medical crews to route patients to the appropriate medical centers, and monitoring the quality of care that people receive in the hospital.. Other studies have looked at the impact of speed of clot retrieval, but those studies analyzed data from outdated trials ...
The device works by filling a nano-capsule with a clot-destroying compound. The nano-capsules exterior harbors an antibody that viciously targets platelets, the cells that are the main creator of clots. Once the nano-particle arrives at a clot, thrombin (a molecule crucial to the unclotting process) breaks through the nano-capsules shell. The thrombin breakthrough releases an anti-clotting compound contained in the center of the nano-capsule, which goes to work, demolishing the undesired clot coagulation ...

In Wieselthalers case, blood eventually broke out of his patients pulmonary network into the lower right lung, heading directly for the bronchial tree. After days of coughing up much smaller clots, Wieselthalers patient bore down on a longer, deeper cough and, relieved, spit out a large, oddly shaped clot, folded in on itself. Once Wieselthaler and his team carefully unfurled the bundle and laid it out, they found that the architecture of the airways had been retained so perfectly that they were able to identify it as the right bronchial tree based solely on the number of branches and their alignment. ...

The frequency and severity of bacteremic infections has increased over the last decade and bacterial endovascular infections (i.e., sepsis or endocarditis) are associated with high morbidity and mortality. Bacteria or secreted bacterial products modulate platelet function and, as a result, affect platelet accumulation at sites of vascular infection and inflammation. However, whether bacterial products regulate synthetic events in platelets is not known. In the present study, we determined if prolonged contact with staphylococcal α-toxin signals platelets to synthesize B-cell lymphoma (Bcl-3), a protein that regulates clot retraction in murine and human platelets. We show that α-toxin induced αIIbβ3-dependent aggregation (EC50 2.98 µg/mL ± 0.64 µg/mL) and, over time, significantly altered platelet morphology and stimulated de novo accumulation of Bcl-3 protein in platelets. Adherence to collagen or fibrinogen also increased the expression of Bcl-3 protein by platelets. α-toxin altered Bcl-3

Blood clots are typically a very useful mechanism within the body. When you get a papercut or other minor injury, you may notice that the blood eventually stops flowing. This stoppage happens because of blood clots at the site of the wound, preventing you from losing all of your blood through one small cut. When the blood within your veins forms a clot, however, this same mechanism that usually protects you can turn deadly instead. Blood clots in your veins can break off and travel to important organs, causing a heart attack or stroke, among other issues. It is important to know what the common causes of blood clots are, to find out if you may be at a higher risk for this complication.. ...
Stephan Moll, MD writes… Women are at increased risk for blood clots (DVT, PE, stroke and heart attacks) during pregnancy and in the weeks after delivery. If the risk is high enough, then preventive blood thinners (anticoagulants) are recommended, such as in a woman with a history of a previous blood clot. Guidelines exist as to which woman should be considered for blood thinners (ACOG 2012 guideline; ref 1).. The period after delivery is a particularly high-risk period for forming blood clots. It has typically been defined as being the 6 weeks after giving birth. Therefore, if blood thinners are chosen after delivery, they are classically given for 6 weeks. A study recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine (ref 2) examined whether the risk for blood clots is increased only for 6 weeks postpartum or whether the risk persists beyond the first 6 weeks.. Study Methods. The investigators analyzed data of 1,687,930 women who gave birth in a hospital in California between 2005 and ...
