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.
Hemorrhagic necrosis that was first demonstrated in rabbits with a two-step reaction, an initial local (intradermal) or general (intravenous) injection of a priming endotoxin (ENDOTOXINS) followed by a second intravenous endotoxin injection (provoking agent) 24 h later. The acute inflammation damages the small blood vessels. The following intravascular coagulation leads to capillary and venous THROMBOSIS and NECROSIS. Shwartzman phenomenon can also occur in other species with a single injection of a provoking agent, and during infections or pregnancy. Its susceptibility depends on the status of IMMUNE SYSTEM, coagulation, FIBRINOLYSIS, and blood flow.

A subnormal level of BLOOD PLATELETS.
A cell surface glycoprotein of endothelial cells that binds thrombin and serves as a cofactor in the activation of protein C and its regulation 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

It is used in the treatment of intractable ascites.
A disorder of HEMOSTASIS in which there is a tendency for the occurrence of THROMBOSIS.

Fitzgerald factor (high molecular weight kininogen) clotting activity in human plasma in health and disease in various animal plasmas. (1/581)

Fitzgerald factor (high molecular weight kininogen) is an agent in normal human plasma that corrects the impaired in vitro surface-mediated plasma reactions of blood coagulation, fibrinolysis, and kinin generation observed in Fitzgerald trait plasma. To assess the possible pathophysiologic role of Fitzgerald factor, its titer was measured by a functional clot-promoting assay. Mean +/- SD in 42 normal adults was 0.99+/-0.25 units/ml, one unit being the activity in 1 ml of normal pooled plasma. No difference in titer was noted between normal men and women, during pregnancy, or after physical exercise. Fitzgerald factor activity was significantly reduced in the plasmas of eight patients with advanced hepatic cirrhosis (0.40+/-0.09 units/ml) and of ten patients with disseminated intravascular coagulation (0.60+/-0.30 units/ml), but was normal in plasmas of patients with other congenital clotting factor deficiencies, nephrotic syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, or sarcoidosis, or under treatment with warfarin. The plasmas of 21 mammalian species tested appeared to contain Fitzgerald factor activity, but those of two avian, two repitilian, and one amphibian species did not correct the coagulant defect in Fitzgerald trait plasmas.  (+info)

Transcatheter arterial embolization for impending rupture of an isolated internal iliac artery aneurysm complicated with disseminated intravascular coagulation. (2/581)

A 90-year-old male, with impending rupture of an isolated internal iliac artery aneurysm (IIAA) complicated with disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) was successfully treated with transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE). After TAE, enlargement of the aneurysm was arrested and coagulation-fibrinolytic abnormalities induced by DIC improved without severe complications. Although IIAA is relatively rare, the post-operative mortality of patients with ruptures is reportedly high. We assessed the usefulness of this procedure for impending rupture of IIAA, especially for patients in high risk groups.  (+info)

Hemolysis associated with 25% human albumin diluted with sterile water--United States, 1994-1998. (3/581)

Since 1994, a shortage of 5% human albumin, a product used off-label during therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE), has existed in the United States. Because of this shortage, hospital pharmacists may prepare 5% solution of human albumin by diluting 25% human albumin with 0.9% NaCl or, when sodium load is a concern, 5% dextrose. However, if sterile water alone is used as the diluent, the osmolarity (tonicity) of the albumin solution is reduced and may cause hemolysis in recipients. This report describes two of 10 episodes of hemolysis (one fatal) among persons who received 25% human albumin diluted with sterile water and emphasizes that sterile water alone should not be used to dilute albumin.  (+info)

Inflammation, sepsis, and coagulation. (4/581)

The molecular links between inflammation and coagulation are unquestioned. Inflammation promotes coagulation by leading to intravascular tissue factor expression, eliciting the expression of leukocyte adhesion molecules on the intravascular cell surfaces, and down regulating the fibrinolytic and protein C anticoagulant pathways. Thrombin, in turn, can promote inflammatory responses. This creates a cycle that logically progresses to vascular injury as occurs in septic shock. Most complex systems are regulated by product inhibition. This inflammation-coagulation cycle seems to follow this same principle with the protein C pathway serving as the regulatory mechanism. The molecular basis by which the protein C pathway functions as an anticoagulant is relatively well established compared to the mechanisms involved in regulating inflammation. As one approach to identifying the mechanisms involved in regulating inflammation, we set out to identify novel receptors that could modulate the specificity of APC in a manner analogous to the mechanisms by which thrombomodulin modulates thrombin specificity. This approach led to the identification of an endothelial cell protein C receptor (EPCR). To understand the mechanism, we obtained a crystal structure of APC (lacking the Gla domain). The crystal structure reveals a deep groove in a location analogous to anion binding exosite 1 of thrombin, the location of interaction for thrombomodulin, platelet thrombin receptor and fibrinogen. Thrombomodulin blocks the activation of platelets and fibrinogen without blocking reactivity with chromogenic substrates or inhibitors. Similarly, in solution, EPCR blocks factor Va inactivation without modulating reactivity with protease inhibitors. Thus, these endothelial cell receptors for the protein C system share many properties in common including the ability to be modulated by inflammatory cytokines. Current studies seek to identify the substrate for the APC-EPCR complex as the next step in elucidating the mechanisms by which the protein C pathway modulates the response to injury and inflammation.  (+info)

Incidence and possible reasons for discordant results between positive FDP and negative D-dimer latex assays in clinical specimens. (5/581)

In general, FDP and D-dimer values have a correlation in clinical conditions associated with disseminated intravascular coagulation(DIC) or coagulation activation. However, there are some patients with discordant results who demonstrate elevated FDP and negative D-dimer results by latex agglutination assays. The incidence and possible reasons for the discordance between FDP and D-dimer results were investigated through simultaneous measurements (n = 763) from clinical patients with suspected DIC or coagulation activation. 24.8% (189/763) of samples with elevated FDP were negative for D-dimer assays by the latex agglutination method. Further detailed analysis on randomly-selected discordant samples (n = 41) revealed that the most common reason for the discordance was the lower sensitivity of the semiquantitative latex agglutination method for D-dimer, compared with quantitative enzyme or other latex immunoassay. The other contributing factors to the discordance were accelerated fibrinogenolysis without secondary fibrinolysis, elevated soluble fibrin monomer and rheumatoid factor.  (+info)

Hypercalcemia and parathyroid hormone-related protein in a dog with undifferentiated nasal carcinoma. (6/581)

Hypercalcemia was discovered in a 7-year-old, castrated male basset hound with a suspected nasal tumor. The dog died the day after admission and nasal carcinoma and disseminated intravascular coagulation were diagnosed on postmortem. Detectable levels of serum PTHrP support a diagnosis of hypercalcemia of malignancy.  (+info)

Review: infectious diseases and coagulation disorders. (7/581)

Infection, both bacterial and nonbacterial, may be associated with coagulation disorders, resulting in disseminated intravascular coagulation and multiorgan failure. In the last few decades a series of in vivo and in vitro studies has provided more insight into the pathogenetic mechanisms and the role of cytokines in these processes. Because of the growing interest in this field, the complexity of the subject, and the fact that many physicians must deal with a variety of infections, current data are reviewed on the association between infectious diseases and the coagulation system. Novel therapeutic intervention strategies that will probably become available in the near future are mentioned, along with those of special interest for infectious disorders for which only supportive care can be given.  (+info)

Disseminated thrombosis and bone infarction in female rats following inhalation exposure to 2-butoxyethanol. (8/581)

Groups of 10 male and 10 female F344/N rats were exposed to 0, 31, 62.5, 125, 250, and 500 ppm of 2-butoxyethanol (BE) by inhalation, 6 hr/day, 5 days/wk, for 13 wk. Four moribund female rats from the 500 ppm group were sacrificed during the first 4 days of exposure, and 1 moribund female from the same group was sacrificed during week 5. Dark irregular mottling and/or loss of the distal tail were noted in sacrificed moribund rats. Similar gross lesions were noted in the terminally sacrificed females exposed to 500 ppm BE. Histologic changes noted in the day 4 sacrificed moribund rats included disseminated thrombosis involving the coccygeal vertebrae, cardiac atrium, lungs, liver, pulp of the incisor teeth, and the submucosa of the anterior section of the nasal cavity. Alterations noted in coccygeal vertebrae from the 500 ppm sacrificed moribund rats included ischemic necrosis and/or degeneration of bone marrow cells, bone-lining cells, osteocytes (within cortical and trabecular bone), and chondrocytes (both articular and growth plate), changes that are consistent with an infarction process. The moribund female rat that was sacrificed during week 5 and those female rats treated with 500 ppm and sacrificed following 13 wk of treatment lacked thrombi, but they had coccygeal vertebral changes consistent with prior infarction and transient or complete bone growth arrest. No bone lesions or thrombi were noted in the male rats treated with the same doses of BE. In conclusion, exposure to 500 ppm BE vapors caused acute disseminated thrombosis and bone infarction in female rats. Possible pathogenic mechanisms are discussed.  (+info)

Disorders of coagulation have long been associated with inflammatory bowel disease. Children, as well as adults, with both active and inactive ulcerative colitis have been found to have abnormal coagulation and fibrinolysis. Disseminated intravascular coagulation arises from an overwhelming of the haemostatic regulatory mechanisms leading to an excessive generation of thrombin and a failure of the normal inhibitory pathways to prevent systemic effects of this enzyme. Ulcerative colitis has been associated with disseminated intravascular coagulation in conjunction with septicemia, toxic megacolon and surgery. A fourteen-year-old boy with a history of poorly controlled ulcerative colitis presented with nonbilious emesis, hematochezia, and hematuria. Laboratory workup revealed disseminated intravascular coagulation. He was placed on triple antibiotics therapy. An infectious workup came back negative. A computerized tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen revealed a marked thickening and irregularity of the

This observational cohort compared 70 consecutive liver transplantations (OLT) with no intra-abdominal drain and 70 control subjects C with an intra-abdominal drain who were operated immediately prior to them. We sought to assess the impact of abdominal drainage on the diagnosis and prevention of early postoperative complications of hemoperitoneum, reinterventions, biliary leaks or percutaneous drainage. We assessed variables related to the recipient (age, indication, pretransplant ascites, body mass index, Model for End-stage Liver Disease score, and rejection episodes, to the donor (age, steatosis and, ischemia time) as well as intra- and postoperative factors (surgery time, blood product use, and coagulopathy ...
The findings on reversing the anticoagulant effect of rivaroxaban in the study of Godier et al .7 are largely in keeping with the results of previous studies. Perzborn et al . showed that rFVIIa partially restored thrombin generation in human platelet-rich plasma because higher doses of rivaroxaban were necessary for the same amount of thrombin inhibition if rFVIIa was present (as presented at the 21st Congress of the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis, Oxford, United Kingdom, August 2007). In rats treated with 2 mg/kg rivaroxaban, Tinel et al . found that a supratherapeutic dose of rFVIIa (400 μg/kg) partially normalized PT and thrombin generation (as presented at the 21st Congress of the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis, Oxford, United Kingdom, August 2007). Finally, in baboons given 0.9 mg/kg rivaroxaban, Gruber et al .11 found that 210 μg/kg rFVIIa shortened bleeding time and PT by approximately 30%. Thus, we may speculate that rFVIIa may help to mitigate ...
I did not realize how important it was to understand your risk in regards to hospitalization and VTE because I have only been in the hospital for a DVT and PE. I have never been hospitalized for any major surgeries or injuries. I currently have a family member who is in the hospital for major surgery combined with cancer treatment and I was fortunate enough to be present in the hospital room when blood clots were being discussed. Risk was assessed and my family member was prescribed twice daily injections of lovenox to prevent blood clots. Prior to the surgery, a filter was inserted to hopefully prevent any PE complications after the procedure. Seeing the pain my loved one is already going through because of the diagnosis, I suddenly realized why it is also important to consider blood clots. With all of the things to worry about in terms of diagnosis and longterm recovery, I feel relieved that the hospital has skillfully and thoroughly done the best it can to reduce the risk of blood clots. ...

Acquired hypofibrinogenemia is due either to a decreased rate of fibrinogen production in the liver or to an increased rate of disappearance from the circulating blood. The latter mechanism can be the result of intravascular coagulation or accelerated fibrinolysis. Whereas the development of thrombolytic therapy has introduced a unique tool for investigation of pure fibrinolytic states, it is not possible to induce intravascular coagulation experimentally in man. Progress in the basic understanding of this condition is therefore dependent on careful investigation of human cases of acquired hypofibrinogenemia.. The case reported below is an example of acquired acute hypofibrinogenemia in a ...
We evaluated the effects of pentoxifylline and indomethacin and heparin in a rabbit model of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) induced by infusion of 100 μg/kg/hour of Escherichia coli endotoxin lipoplysaccharide (LPS) for 6 hour. Heparin, indomethacin, pentoxifylline or saline were administered simultaneously with LPS. In addition, a control group was formed which was administered only saline. Hemostatic markers at 0, 1/2, 2, and 6 hour as well as histopathologic changes in the organs and the mortality at 24 hour were determined. The infusion of LPS caused a severe impairment in hemostasis and fibrin accumulation in the pulmonary vasculature. Heparin significantly improved hemostatic impairment and reduced the fibrin accumulation in the pulmonary vasculature. Pentoxifylline and indomethacin had no significant effect on DIC, except that pentoxifylline prevented the decrement in platelet count slightly (p, 0.05). None of the drugs, including heparin, had any effect on mortality. As a ...
A rare case is described of acute disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) following isolated mild head injury with acute subdural haematoma, coagulopathy onset preceding craniotomy. Surgical treatment of the cause followed by swift diagnosis and treatment soon after surgery enabled a good outcome. Post-operative recollection of subdural and extadural blood was treated by further surgery. DIC following isolated mild head injury without axonal damage is rare, but fatal if missed. Thrombocytopaenia in head injured patients should be investigated expediently. Post-operative interim imaging (if not standard practice) should also be considered to exclude haemorrhagic recollection requiring further surgery.
This trial will evaluate the safety and efficacy of thrombomodulin alfa i patients with disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) with hematologic
SOLFM : Fibrin monomers are intermediate products formed during the proteolysis of fibrinogen by thrombin. During intravascular coagulation, low levels of thrombin are available in the blood, but the quantity of fibrin monomers formed are not sufficient to aggregate and form a clot; instead, they associate themselves with fibrinogen or fibrinogen-degradation products to form soluble complexes (ie, soluble fibrin monomer complex: SFMC). Intravascular coagulation and fibrinolysis (ICF) or disseminated intravascular coagulation: DIC is a clinical diagnosis; no single test is completely sensitive or specific for ICF.
Bleeding and bruising are common symptoms in the primary care setting. The patient history can help determine whether the bruising or bleeding is abnormal. The International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis has developed a bleeding assessment tool that can be used to indicate possible pathology. A family history of bleeding problems may suggest a hereditary coagulation defect. Such a history is especially important in children who may not have experienced a major bleeding episode. Medication review can identify pharmacologic causes of the bleeding or bruising. Physical examination findings such as mucocutaneous bleeding suggest that the underlying condition is caused by platelet dysfunction, whereas hemarthroses or hematomas are more common in coagulopathy.

Confronting an irked rattlesnake or other venomous snake is definitely a situation any person, dog or cat wishes to avoid. But a new study indicates that cats are twice as likely to survive a venomous snake bite than dogs. In terms of size, most dogs are larger than most cats. However, a research team at the University of Queensland pinned down the reason cats survive venom from snakes on a condition called venom-induced consumptive coagulopathy. Thats a lengthy string of words to describe the condition when an animal loses his ability to clot blood and as a consequence, bleeds to death.. The Queensland team, led by associate professor Bryan Fry studied findings of venomous bites caused by the eastern brown snake in Australia. While only 31 percent of dogs survive being bitten by an eastern brown snake without antivenom, cats are twice as likely to survive - at 66 percent, Dr. Fry reported to Science Daily.. ...

Aim In the Apixaban for Reduction in Stroke and Other Thromboembolic Events in Atrial Fibrillation (ARISTOTLE) trial, apixaban compared with warfarin reduced the risk of stroke, major bleed, and death in patients with atrial fibrillation. In this ancillary study, we evaluated clinical consequences of major bleeds, as well as management and treatment effects of warfarin vs. apixaban.. Methods and results Major International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis bleeding was defined as overt bleeding accompanied by a decrease in haemoglobin (Hb) of ≥2 g/dL or transfusion of ≥2 units of packed red cells, occurring at a critical site or resulting in death. Time to event [death, ischaemic stroke, or myocardial infarction (MI)] was evaluated by Cox regression models. The excess risk associated with bleeding was evaluated by separate time-dependent indicators for intracranial (ICH) and non-intracranial haemorrhage. Major bleeding occurred in 848 individuals (4.7%), of whom 126 (14.9%) died within ...

Acute promyelocytic leukaemia, a subtype of acute myelocytic leukaemia (AML) that usually occurs in patients younger than 40 years of age, accounts for approximately 10-15% of AML cases. Acute promyelocytic leukemia is characterised by the chromosomal translocation t(15;17). The translocation occurs between the retinoic acid receptor a (RARA) gene on chromosome 17 and the promyelocytic leukaemia (PML) gene on chromosome 151-3. This rearrangement results in a leukaemogenic PML-RARA fusion gene which alters the growth and differentiation of certain myeloid cells3. The hallmark of APL is the uncontrolled proliferation of abnormal promyelocytes and disseminated intravascular coagulopathy (DIC)1,4,5. Prior to the introduction of ATRA therapy, APL was the most aggressive form of AML with death resulting from severe coagulopathy and bleeding diathesis on average in one month1. Effective treatment for APL with ATRA was developed between the years 1983-19881,6. Until recently therapy included ATRA plus ...

Introduction: Proning is the standard of care for patients with severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), however, this position presents challenges to patient care, especially when patients are unable to tolerate supine positioning. Central venous catheters (CVCs) are typically placed into the internal jugular, subclavian, or femoral veins in supine patients, and with the introduction of ultrasound, internal jugular vein (IJV) central line placement is typically via the anterior or lateral approach in a supine patient. In a prone patient, only the IJV can be accessed, however, it is not easily approached anteriorly or laterally. We describe utilizing a posterior approach to place a CVC into the IJV in a patient with severe ARDS who was unable to tolerate supine positioning and needed emergent leukapheresis. Case: A morbidly obese thirty-three year old female presented with epistaxis, and found to have a leukocytosis of 45,000, findings consistent with disseminated intravascular coagulopathy,

It is important to be able to distinguish the presence of DIC from other hemostatic disorders and a few key laboratory features should be appreciated. Because DIC results in consumption platelets as well as all the coagulation factors, it is the only hemostatic disorder that yields defects in all laboratory indices of hemostasis. It is characterized by thrombocytopenia along with increases in both PT and PTT. Because of widespread consumption of fibrinogen and the subsequent generation of fibrin split products, DIC is also characterized by reduced fibrinogen] levels and increased D-dimer levels ...

Amniotic Fluid Embolism (AFE) is rare, but associated with high mortality and as well morbidity rates for the binomial maternal-fetal , due to long-term neurological sequels. Although mortality due to Amniotic Fluid Embolism has decreased in recent surveys, it still remains among the most important causes of maternal death in the world. The syndrome seems to have a higher incidence than has been published because only the most exuberant clinical cases are reported. In Brazil, the underregistration of death declaration, hampers further the real monitoring of complications. Several revisions were written on the topic but the pathogenesis of the syndrome remains unclear. The AFE has still complex pathophysiology that leads to pulmonary hypertension, heart failure and disseminated intravascular coagulation. The diagnosis is based on clinical signs and symptoms after excluding other possibilities, because there is still not any laboratory or imaging method able to confirm the Amniotic fluid embolism. ...
Individuals who are heterozygotes for these deficiencies have been traditionally considered to be at high risk of developing DIC without an underlying disorder. Cases linking these defects with DIC and neonatal purpura fulminans have are well documented in the literature [76-78]. Protein C is a glycoprotein which circulates in plasma in an inactive form. Its a vitamin K dependent factor which also requires the presence of protein S and anionic phospholipids for its activity [77]. Protein C gets converted into its active form [APC] by the action of thrombin-thrombomodulin complex. Thrombomodulin (TM) is a membrane-bound glycoprotein initially identified on vascular endothelium [9], and later on leucocytes, smooth muscle cell, platelet, and cardiomyocyte [10, 11]. TM is also expressed in some cancer cells and influences cancer growth and metastasis [12, 13]. TM protein has 557 amino acids, and its structure consists of 5 domains including a highly charged N-terminal lectin-like domain (D1), a ...

Many critically ill patients develop hemostatic abnormalities, ranging from isolated thrombocytopenia or prolonged global clotting tests to complex defects, such as disseminated intravascular coagulation. There are many causes for a deranged coagulation in critically ill patients and each of these underlying disorders may require specific therapeutic or supportive management. In recent years, new insights into the pathogenesis and clinical management of many coagulation defects in critically ill patients have been accumulated and this knowledge is helpful in determining the optimal diagnostic and therapeutic strategy.
Distinguishing between the coagulation abnormalities of liver disease vs. Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) can be difficult as clinical and biochemical findings are similar.. However, Factor VIII levels are usually increased or normal in liver disease. Whereas, Factor VIII levels are decreased in DIC.. WHY? Factor VIII is produced in endothelial cells rather than the liver; hence it is not affected by the process of cirrhosis.. REFERENCES. ...
D-dimer, a fibrin degradation product generated as a result of plasmin mediated clot dissolution processes, is an indicator of recent clot formation and subsequent fibrinolysis. Analysis of D-dimer concentration is employed in the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and disseminated intravascular coagulation. More recently, D-dimer levels have been correlated with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. In a recent case-control study of biomarkers for cardiovascular disease in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected adults, baseline D-dimer levels strongly correlated with all-cause mortality. Notably, the association between baseline D-dimer levels and death due to cardiovascular disease was less significant.. At present, the pathophysiology underlying the association of elevated D-dimer concentrations with mortality in HIV is not understood. This study seeks to identify possible mechanisms underlying D-dimer elevations in HIV-infected adults by investigating a number of ...
BACKGROUND: Recently published articles describe an increasing incidence of acute pancreatitis (AP) in both children and adults. The prevalence of acute pancreatitis is estimated between 6-45 per 100.000 adults per year and between 3,6 and 13,2 cases per 100.000 children. The severity of acute pancreatitis can range from mild disease to a severe life-treatening disease associated with multiple complications.Therefore, there is a need for an ideal prognostic marker of disease severity that can help the pediatricians to predict clinical course and possible outcome of AP. Coagulation abnormalities always occur in AP, ranging from localized intravascular thrombosis to severe disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and are related to disease severity. Several biochemical markers and haemostatic parameters have been used to assess severity and outcome of AP. Some previous studies reported that D-dimer level, commonly used parameter in the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis as well as ...

Significant thrombocytopenia in patients with severe COVID-19 infection is surprisingly uncommon, with only around 5% of hospitalised patients and 8% of those on the intensive care unit (ICU) developing a platelet count below 100×109/L.1 This is inconsistent with our expectation of patients with serious infective/inflammatory conditions where endogenous and iatrogenic factors affect the platelet count; for example, liver impairment, sepsis, heparin, antibiotics, antivirals and other commonly used agents.2. The coagulopathy associated with COVID-19, with very elevated D-dimers, is different from classic disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), where platelet and fibrinogen levels fall as a result of consumption in the coagulation process. Autopsies from patients who have died with COVID-19 pneumonia show microvascular thrombosis throughout the small vessels of the lungs and alveolar capillaries, suggesting thrombi are likely to be the end point of localised inflammation.3 This inflammation ...
Tissue factor (TF; CD142) is the principal initiator of the coagulation cascade. This 45kDa protein is constitutively expressed in extravascular cells and as such forms a protective haemostatic envelope surrounding the vasculature ready to initiate coagulation on vascular injury. When bound to its cofactor factor VII/VIIa in the normal bloodstream, it forms a highly catalytic complex (TF/VIIa) which triggers the activation of factors IX and X and ultimately the formation of a fibrin clot. Peripheral blood cells do not, in a resting state, express TF allowing maintenance of the fluidity of the blood. However, agonists such as bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and immune complexes, if present in the bloodstream can induce the expression of TF on monocytes resulting in activation of the clotting process. This induction of Monocyte TF has been clearly implicated in the pathology of various disease processes such as disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) following endotoxaemia, thromboembolic ...
