Agents acting to arrest the flow of blood. Absorbable hemostatics arrest bleeding either by the formation of an artificial clot or by providing a mechanical matrix that facilitates clotting when applied directly to the bleeding surface.

Evidence suggesting the regulation of a coagulation factor levels in rabbits by a transferable plasma agent. (1/4604)

New Zealand white rabbits were given 30 ml of goat serum intravenously. This procedure resulted in an immediate decrease in platelet count, fibrinogen, and levels of coagulation factors II, V, VII, and X, due to consumption coagulopathy. These factors returned toward baseline levels approximately 12 hr after the injection. Plasma from rabbits who had received goat serum 48 hr previously (donor rabbits) was injected into recipient rabbits. This procedure resulted in a slight rise in the level of coagulation factor II (range, 20%-30%) and a significant rise in factors V (35%-75%), VII (35%-235%), and X (35%-75%) in the recipients. When plasma from control donor rabbits who had not received goat serum was injected into recipients, there was no change in these coagulation factors. It is postulated that the reduction in coagulation factor levels in donor rabbits induces a "coagulopoietin" for each factor or one "coagulopoietin" for all factors which stimulates increased synthesis and/or release of these factors in recipient rabbits.  (+info)

Effect of intravenous dextran 70 and pneumatic leg compression on incidence of postoperative pulmonary embolism. (2/4604)

The incidence of pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis was measured in 50 matched pairs of patients undergoing common surgical procedures with preoperative and postoperative ventilation-perfusion lung scans and the fibrinogen uptake test. One patient in each pair was treated with intravenous dextran 70 and pneumatic leggings. The incidence of pulmonary embolism among the treated patients was significantly reduced from 24% to 8%, but the incidence of deep vein thrombosis was not significantly reduced (34% to 24%).  (+info)

Constitutional, biochemical and lifestyle correlates of fibrinogen and factor VII activity in Polish urban and rural populations. (3/4604)

BACKGROUND: Fibrinogen and factor VII activity are known to be related to atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease, but population differences in clotting factors and modifiable characteristics that influence their levels have not been widely explored. METHODS: This paper examines correlates of plasma fibrinogen concentration and factor VII activity in 2443 men and women aged 35-64 in random samples selected from the residents in two districts in urban Warsaw (618 men and 651 women) and from rural Tarnobrzeg Province (556 men and 618 women) screened in 1987-1988, and assesses which characteristics might explain urban-rural differences. Fibrinogen and factor VII activity were determined using coagulation methods. RESULTS: Fibrinogen was 12.9 mg/dl higher in men and 14.1 mg/dl higher in women in Tarnobrzeg compared to Warsaw. Factor VII activity was higher in Warsaw (9.2% in men and 15.3% in women). After adjustment for selected characteristics, fibrinogen was higher in smokers compared to non-smokers by 28 mg/dl in men and 22 mg/dl in women. In women, a 15 mg/dl increase in HDL-cholesterol was associated with a 10 mg/dl decrease in fibrinogen (P < 0.01). After adjustment for other variables, a higher factor VII activity in Warsaw remained significant (a difference of 9.4% in men and 14.8% in women). Lower fibrinogen in Warsaw remained significant only in women (15.4 mg/dl difference). CONCLUSIONS: The study confirmed that sex, age, BMI, smoking and blood lipids are related to clotting factors. However, with the exception of gender differences and smoking, associations between clotting factors and other variables were small and of questionable practical importance.  (+info)

Improvement of factor VII clotting activity following long-term NCPAP treatment in obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome. (4/4604)

Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) is a very common disorder. Patients with OSAS are at an increased risk for cardiovascular events. It has also been reported that a 25% rise in factor VII clotting activity (FVIIc) is associated with a 55% increase in ischaemic heart disease death during the first 5 years. We examined the effects of nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) treatment on FVIIc in patients with OSAS. FVIIc was investigated prospectively in 15 patients with OSAS before (mean +/- SEM apnoea and hypopnoea index (AHI) 61.5 +/- 4.2 and after (AHI 3.0 +/- 0.9) NCPAP treatment for immediate relief, at 1 month after treatment and at over 6 months. FVIIc levels gradually decreased after NCPAP treatment. After 6 months of NCPAP treatment, FVIIc levels had decreased significantly (before 141.1 +/- 11.7% vs. after 6 months 110.7 +/- 6.2%; p < 0.01). Six of the seven patients whose FVIIc levels were over 140% before the NCPAP treatment had FVIIc levels below 130% after 6 months or 1 year of NCPAP treatment. This decrease in FVIIc after long-term NCPAP treatment could improve mortality in OSAS patients. If patients, especially obese ones, present with high FVIIc of unknown origin, it would be prudent to check for OSAS.  (+info)

Elevated levels of C-reactive protein at discharge in patients with unstable angina predict recurrent instability. (5/4604)

BACKGROUND: In a group of patients admitted for unstable angina, we investigated whether C-reactive protein (CRP) plasma levels remain elevated at discharge and whether persistent elevation is associated with recurrence of instability. METHODS AND RESULTS: We measured plasma levels of CRP, serum amyloid A protein (SAA), fibrinogen, total cholesterol, and Helicobacter pylori and Chlamydia pneumoniae antibody titers in 53 patients admitted to our coronary care unit for Braunwald class IIIB unstable angina. Blood samples were taken on admission, at discharge, and after 3 months. Patients were followed for 1 year. At discharge, CRP was elevated (>3 mg/L) in 49% of patients; of these, 42% had elevated levels on admission and at 3 months. Only 15% of patients with discharge levels of CRP <3 mg/L but 69% of those with elevated CRP (P<0.001) were readmitted because of recurrence of instability or new myocardial infarction. New phases of instability occurred in 13% of patients in the lower tertile of CRP (/=8.7 mg/L, P<0.001). The prognostic value of SAA was similar to that of CRP; that of fibrinogen was not significant. Chlamydia pneumoniae but not Helicobacter pylori antibody titers significantly correlated with CRP plasma levels. CONCLUSIONS: In unstable angina, CRP may remain elevated for at >/=3 months after the waning of symptoms and is associated with recurrent instability. Elevation of acute-phase reactants in unstable angina could represent a hallmark of subclinical persistent instability or of susceptibility to recurrent instability and, at least in some patients, could be related to chronic Chlamydia pneumoniae infection.  (+info)

Association of plasma fibrinogen concentration with vascular access failure in hemodialysis patients. (6/4604)

BACKGROUND: Elevated plasma fibrinogen is an important risk factor for coronary artery disease in the general population and patients with chronic renal failure. High plasma fibrinogen may trigger thrombus formation in arteriovenous fistulas. We performed a prospective, cohort study to evaluate the association of plasma fibrinogen concentration with vascular access failure in patients undergoing long-term haemodialysis. METHODS: Between September 1989 and October 1995, 144 patients underwent a vascular access operation. In March 1997, 102 patients (56 M, 46 F) who had been followed up for more than 18 months (median; 37 months, range; 18-102 months) were included in the study. The median age of the patients was 52 years (range; 19-78 years). In 35 patients, renal disease was secondary to diabetes mellitus. The type of vascular access was a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) graft in 17 patients. Seventy-seven patients received recombinant human erythropoietin (r-HuEPO) therapy during the follow-up period. Plasma fibrinogen, albumin, total cholesterol, hematocrit, platelets and creatinine were measured at the time of operation. Vascular access failure was defined as the occurrence of complications requiring transluminal angioplasty, thrombolytic therapy or surgical repair. RESULTS: Thirty-eight patients had at least one vascular access failure and the incidence was 0.3 (range; 0-2.4) episodes per patient-year. The survival rate of vascular access was 78% (native fistula; 80%, PTFE graft; 71%) after 12 months and 70% (native fistula; 73%, PTFE graft; 51%) after 24 months. Older age, a PTFE graft, r-HuEPO therapy, higher hematocrit, lower albumin and higher fibrinogen levels were significantly associated with vascular access failure, whereas gender, diabetes mellitus, total cholesterol and platelet count were not. Plasma fibrinogen was inversely correlated with albumin (r=-0.38, P=0.001). The cumulative vascular access survival was significantly lower in patients with high plasma fibrinogen levels (> or = 460 mg/dl) compared with patients with low levels (< 460 mg/dl) (P=0.007). Independent risk factors for vascular access failure analysed by Cox's proportional hazards model were older age (RR; 1.36 by 10-year increment), higher fibrinogen level (RR; 1.20 by 100 mg/dl increment), PTFE graft (RR; 2.28) and r-HuEPO therapy (RR; 3.79). CONCLUSION: High plasma fibrinogen level is an independent risk factor for vascular access failure in haemodialysis patients.  (+info)

Effect of prostanoids and their precursors on the aggregation of rainbow trout thrombocytes. (7/4604)

The role of prostanoids and their precursor fatty acids in the aggregatory response of thrombocytes (platelet equivalents of fish) from the rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, was studied. Aggregation of these cells was induced by the thromboxane mimetic U-46619 or arachidonic acid (AA) in the presence of human or trout fibrinogen. The production of TXB2/3 by thrombocytes in response to stimulation with AA was inhibited by aspirin, ibuprofen, and indomethacin. However, thrombocyte aggregation in response to AA stimulation was not significantly altered by these agents at the concentrations tested (10-100 microM), with the exception of indomethacin at 20 and 40 microM. Effects on cytosolic calcium concentration have been suggested as an alternative mechanism for the inhibitory action of indomethacin on human platelet aggregation. The present study, however, failed to identify this as a mechanism for the inhibition of U-46619-induced trout thrombocyte aggregation by indomethacin. The polyunsaturated fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid both exhibited an inhibitory effect on U-46619-induced thrombocyte aggregation similar to that observed with mammalian platelets. Unlike the case in mammalian hemostasis, prostacyclin inhibited thrombocyte aggregation only at high concentrations (>5 microM). Prostaglandin E2, however, inhibited thrombocyte aggregation at much lower concentrations (>0.01 microM), suggesting that it may be the major inhibitory eicosanoid in trout.  (+info)

Socioeconomic status and determinants of hemostatic function in healthy women. (8/4604)

Hemostatic factors are reported to be associated with coronary heart disease (CHD). Socioeconomic status (SES) is 1 of the determinants of the hemostatic profile, but the factors underlying this association are not well known. Our aim was to examine determinants of the socioeconomic differences in hemostatic profile. Between 1991 and 1994, we studied 300 healthy women, aged 30 to 65 years, who were representative of women living in the greater Stockholm area. Fibrinogen, factor VII mass concentration (FVII:Ag), activated factor VII (FVIIa), von Willebrand factor (vWF), and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) were measured. Educational attainment was used as a measure of SES. Low educational level and an unfavorable hemostatic profile were both associated with older age, unhealthful life style, psychosocial stress, atherogenic biochemical factors, and hypertension. Levels of hemostatic factors increased with lower educational attainment. Independently of age, the differences between the lowest (mandatory) and highest (college/university) education in FVII:Ag levels were 41 microg/L (95% confidence interval [CI], 15 to 66 microg/L, P=0.001), 0.26 g/L (95% CI, 0.10 to 0.42 g/L, P=0.001) in fibrinogen levels, and 0.11 U/mL (95% CI, 0.09 to 0.12 U/mL, P=0.03) in levels of vWF. The corresponding differences in FVIIa and PAI-1 were not statistically significant. With further adjustment for menopausal status, family history of CHD, marital status, psychosocial stress, lifestyle patterns, biochemical factors, and hypertension, statistically significant differences between mandatory and college/university education were observed in FVII:Ag (difference=34 microg/L; 95% CI, 2 to 65 microg/L, P=0.05) but not in fibrinogen (difference=0.03 g/L; 95% CI, -0.13 to 0.19 g/L, P=0.92) or in vWF (difference=0.06 U/mL; 95% CI, -0.10 to 0.22 U/mL, P=0.45). An educational gradient was most consistent and statistically significant for FVII:Ag, fibrinogen, and vWF. Age, psychosocial stress, unhealthful life style, atherogenic biochemical factors, and hypertension mediated the association of low educational level with elevated levels of fibrinogen and vWF. Psychosocial stress and unhealthful life style were the most important contributing factors. There was an independent association between education and FVII:Ag, which could not be explained by any of these factors.  (+info)

Cigarette smoking and hyperfibrinogenaemia are both significant risk factors for the development of cardiovascular disease. Two studies are described here which aimed to establish the metabolic mechanism responsible for the raised plasma fibrinogen concentration observed in smokers. Chronic smokers had a significantly elevated absolute rate of fibrinogen synthesis (ASR) compared with non-smokers (22.7±1.3 mg/kg per day versus 16.0±1.3 mg/kg per day; means±S.E.M., P , 0.01), with plasma levels of fibrinogen significantly correlated with fibrinogen synthesis (r = 0.65, P = 0.04). Unlike fibrinogen, plasma albumin concentrations were lower in smokers than in non-smokers (45±0.4 versus 47±0.7 g/l, P , 0.05), but there was no difference in rates of albumin synthesis between the two groups. Two weeks cessation from smoking by previously chronic smokers was associated with a rapid and marked fall in plasma fibrinogen concentration (from 3.06±0.11 g/l to 2.49±0.14 g/l, P , 0.001), and a ...
OBJECTIVES: This study was designed to investigate whether single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and haplotypes of the fibrinogen gene-cluster (fibrinogen chains alpha [FGA], beta [FGB], and gamma [FGG]) could explain the inter- and intraindividual variability of fibrinogen levels in patients with atherosclerosis. We also searched for genetic determinants affecting the responses of fibrinogen genes to proinflammatory stimulation. BACKGROUND: The mechanisms regulating fibrinogen levels are not fully understood, and they are likely to be regulated by complex gene-environment interactions. METHODS: In the AIRGENE study, 895 survivors of myocardial infarction from 5 European cities were followed prospectively for 6 to 8 months, and plasma fibrinogen, interleukin (IL)-6, and C-reactive protein levels were determined monthly. We analyzed 21 SNPs and the corresponding haplotypes in the 3 fibrinogen genes. RESULTS: Eight SNPs in FGA and FGB were significantly associated with fibrinogen levels. Similarly, 2
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Elevated levels of plasma fibrinogen, the major structural protein of blood clots, are strongly associated with cardiovascular disease. But while fibrinogen fulfills many etiological criteria, it remains unclear whether elevated levels of fibrinogen are an important cause of cardiovascular disease or an effect of it. This link between fibrinogen and cardiovascular disease may lie not only in the level of plasma fibrinogen, but also in its composition. We found that elevated levels of a minor fibrinogen isoform called gamma prime (gammaA/gamma) fibrinogen were associated with coronary artery disease. This observation is consistent with findings from an independent research group, who reported an association between the ratio of gammaA/gamma fibrinogen to total fibrinogen and arterial thrombosis. To date, however, no study has directly tested the association between gammaA/gamma fibrinogen and traditional cardiovascular disease risk factors (e.g. smoking, ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of ATP on ligand recognition of platelet fibrinogen receptor on GPIIb-IIIa. AU - Gawaz, M. P.. AU - Mayinger, P.. AU - Neumann, F. J.. PY - 1994. Y1 - 1994. N2 - The recent discovery of 8-azido-ATP binding sites on the platelet fibrinogen receptor glycoprotein complex GPIIb-IIIa suggests that extracellular ATP may directly modulate function of GPIIb-IIIa. In this study we investigated the effect of ATP on ligand binding to GPIIb-IIIa. Fibrinogen-mediated aggregation of washed platelets was inhibited by ATP and 8-azido-ATP in a dose-dependent manner, independent of the agonist (thrombin, collagen, epinephrine, phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate) used to induce platelet activation. In addition, 8-azido-ATP and ATP inhibited binding of 125I-labeled fibrinogen to thrombin- and phorbol ester-activated platelets. Interaction of nonstimulated platelets with solid-phase fibrinogen was also reduced by 8-azido-ATP and ATP. Moreover, fibrinogen mimetic peptide-induced conformational ...
Fibrinogen is a 340-kDa glycoprotein that circulates in healthy humans at 2 to 4 mg/mL; however, fibrinogen is an acute phase protein synthesized in the liver, and its circulating levels can exceed 7 mg/mL during acute inflammation. Elevated fibrinogen levels are associated with increased risk of incident cardiovascular disease (CVD).1,2 Healthy mice infused with unfractionated human fibrinogen and subjected to FeCl3-mediated carotid artery injury have a shortened time to vessel occlusion and increased resistance of thrombi to acute thrombolysis, suggesting that elevated fibrinogen independently contributes to thrombosis.3,4. See accompanying article on page 2700 of the December 2015 issue. Fibrinogen is composed of two sets of three polypeptide chains: Aα, Bβ, and γ. Alternative splicing of the γA chain leads to synthesis of a γ′ chain containing a unique 20-amino acid sequence at the C terminus. Between 8% and 15% of circulating fibrinogen in healthy individuals contains a γ′ chain ...

N2 - The C-terminal dodecapeptide from human fibrinogen γ-chain, residues 400- 411, HHLG-GAKQAGDV (γ12), is known to inhibit fibrinogen-mediated platelet cell aggregation via competitive interactions with platelet glycoprotein integrin receptor GPIIb/IIIa. NMR studies of γ12 in the presence of purified GPIIb/IIIa (230 kDa) demonstrate that two γ12 binding states (γ12-I and γ12-II) are present on the integrin receptor. The N-terminal sequence HHLG is crucial to formation of γ12 state I since in a shorter γ-chain octapeptide, GAKQAGDV, γ12-I is not observed. Addition of the hexapeptide GRGDSP to the γ12-receptor preparation effectively ...
Fibrinogen γ-chain dodecapeptide, 5 mg. The synthetic dodecapeptide HHLGGAKQAGDV represents the specific platelet receptor recognition site of the human fibrinogen �� chain (residues 400-411).
Platelet aggregation requires the binding of fibrinogen to its receptor, a heterodimer consisting of the plasma-membrane glycoproteins (GP) IIb and IIIa. Although the GPIIb-IIIa complex is present on the surface of unstimulated platelets, it binds fibrinogen only after platelet activation. We have used an immunogold-surface replica technique to study the distribution of GPIIb-IIIa and bound fibrinogen over broad areas of surface membranes in unstimulated, as well as thrombin-activated and ADP-activated human platelets. We found that the immunogold-labeled GPIIb-IIIa was monodispersed over the surface of unstimulated platelets, although the cell surface lacked immunoreactive fibrinogen. On thrombin-stimulated platelets, approximately 65% of the GPIIb-IIIa molecules were in clusters within the plane of the membrane. Fibrinogen, which had been released from the alpha-granules of these cells, bound to GPIIb-IIIa on the cell surface and was similarly clustered. To determine whether the receptors ...
Fibrinogen can transform fibrin through an agglutination reaction, finally forming fibrin polymer with grid structure. The density and viscosity of the reaction system changes drastically during the course of agglutination. In this research, we apply an independently-developed piezoelectric agglutination sensor to detect the fibrinogen agglutination reaction in patients with coronary heart diseases. The terminal judgment method of determining plasma agglutination reaction through piezoelectric agglutination sensor was established. In addition, the standard curve between plasma agglutination time and fibrinogen concentration was established to determinate fibrinogen content quantitatively. The results indicate the close correlation between the STAGO paramagnetic particle method and the method of piezoelectric agglutination sensor for the detection of Fibrinogen. The correlation coefficient was 0.91 (γ = 0.91). The determination can be completed within 10 minutes. The fibrinogen concentration in the

TY - JOUR. T1 - The coagulation system, but not circulating fibrinogen, contributes to liver injury in rats exposed to lipopolysaccharide from gram-negative bacteria. AU - Hewett, J. A.. AU - Roth, R. A.. PY - 1995. Y1 - 1995. N2 - Evidence suggests that components of the coagulation system contribute to the pathogenesis of liver injury after exposure to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) from gram-negative bacteria. Although the mechanism by which the coagulation system mediates liver injury remains unknown, it has been proposed that the conversion of fibrinogen to insoluble fibrin and consequent deposition in liver microvasculature may contribute to the development of liver injury. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that the coagulation system contributes to LPS hepatotoxicity by a mechanism which is dependent on circulating fibrinogen. A marked reduction in plasma fibrinogen concentration occurred in rats after LPS exposure. The decrease in circulating fibrinogen, which marked ...
Fibrinogen is a clot-regulating protein and biological indicator of the stickiness and thickness of blood. Fibrinogen is essential for the formation of a blood clot. A deficiency in fibrinogen can produce mild to severe bleeding disorders. A fibrinogen activity test is a blood test used to detect a possible bleeding disorder, abnormal clotting activity or thrombotic episodes. This test may also be used in conjunction with other cardiac risk markers such as C-reactive protein (CRP), to help obtain additional information when evaluating risk for coronary heart disease and to help guide therapeutic interventions. Tobacco use increases fibrinogen levels.. ...
Increased plasma fibrinogen levels have been identified as a risk indicator for myocardial infarction, stroke, and thrombosis. Both environmental and genetic factors make an important contribution to plasma fibrinogen levels in humans. In the present study we evaluated, in patients with serum cholesterol levels between 4 and 8 mmol/L, the relation of plasma levels and polymorphisms of fibrinogen with coronary artery disease (CAD), cross-sectionally at baseline and after a 2-year follow-up period in which they received either a placebo or pravastatin. Higher plasma fibrinogen levels (3.9 g/L) were observed at baseline in patients with the -455AA genotype than in patients with the -455GA (3.2 g/L) and -455GG (3.1 g/L) genotypes of the -455G/A fibrinogen β gene polymorphism (P , .05). Plasma levels of fibrinogen were not related to the baseline angiographic variables (mean segment diameter [MSD] and minimum obstruction diameter [MOD]), nor to the quantitative changes in these angiographic ...
Methods are provided for the stable storage of ready-to-use, biocompatible human fibrinogen, which despite its concentration, remains available in fluid form, and which will permit long-term rapid and easy processing into a tissue adhesive preparation. Also provided is the sterile, storage-stable aqueous fibrinogen product resulting from the use of the present methods, wherein the fibrinogen remains long term in ready-to-use in liquid form, it has not spontaneously clotted (i.e., formed a clot even in the absence of an activator, such as thrombin/Ca++), and it retains its biological activity (i.e., the ability to rapidly form a fibrin clot upon exposure and vigorous mixing with thrombin and Ca++).
Background. COPD acute exacerbation and COPD stable led to an increase of airways and systemic inflammation that triggers the release of several proinflammatory cytokines into the blood circulation. This inflammatory process stimulates the liver to produce acute phase proteins such as CRP and fibrinogen. Increased levels of fibrinogen in patients with COPD showed the risk for hospitalization did increase to 70% and any increase in fibrinogen levels 1 g/l increase the risk of death 4 times in patients with COPD. Objective. To assess whether there are differences in the levels of fibrinogen in acute exacerbations of COPD and stable COPD. Materials and Methods. This is a cross sectional descriptive analytic study. Subjects admitted into the emergency room with acute exacerbations of COPD who fits the inclusion criteria were inquired for ; smoking or exposure to air pollution, previous exacerbation history, other diseases, BMI examination, leucocyte level, serum fibrinogen level during acute COPD ...

A potential extracellular target for inositol phosphates and analogues with anticancer properties is identified. Proteins from detergent-solubilised HeLa cell lysates bound to a novel affinity column of myo-inositol 1,3,4,5,6-pentakisphosphate (InsP5) coupled to Affigel-10. One high-affinity ligand was fibrinogen Bβ. Inositol phosphates and analogues were able to elute purified fibrinogen from this matrix. InsP5 and the inositol phosphate mimic biphenyl 2,3,4,5,6-pentakisphosphate (BiPhP5) bind fibrinogen in vitro, and block the effects of fibrinogen in A549 cell-based assays of proliferation and migration. They are also able to prevent the fibrinogen-mediated activation of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase. These effects of fibrinogen appear to be mediated through the intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), as cells not expressing ICAM-1 fail to respond. In contrast, myo-inositol hexakisphosphate and the epimeric scyllo-inositol 1,2,3,4,5-pentakisphosphate were without effect. These findings are
TY - JOUR. T1 - Identification of a binding site on human FGF-2 for fibrinogen. AU - Peng, Hu. AU - Sahni, Abha. AU - Fay, Philip. AU - Bellum, Stephen. AU - Prudovsky, Igor. AU - Maciag, Thomas. AU - Francis, Charles W.. PY - 2004/3/15. Y1 - 2004/3/15. N2 - Endothelial cell adhesive interactions are mediated by both fibrinogen and fibrin, and growth is stimulated by fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF-2). We have shown previously that FGF-2 binds specifically and with high affinity to fibrinogen and fibrin and that fibrinogen potentiates the proliferative capacity of FGF-2 and also protects it from proteolytic degradation. To further characterize this interaction we have performed FGF-2 mutagenesis to identify the interactive site. Because FGF-1 has a similar structure to FGF-2 but does not bind to fibrinogen, we used a strategy of cassette and site-directed mutagenesis, exchanging residues from FGF-1 and FGF-2 and correlating structural changes with fibrinogen binding. Two cassette interchange ...
The current study demonstrates that higher baseline fibrinogen is an independent predictor of 2‐year MACE after elective or urgent PCI, and is driven by objective, clinically relevant ischemic cardiovascular events, independent of periprocedural MI. Additionally, index PCI for an ACS, longer total implanted stent length, use of BMS, and use of small‐caliber stents are also independent predictors of 2‐year MACE, while measures of platelet reactivity using the VerifyNow P2Y12 assay are not. Post hoc analyses using objective, clinically relevant definitions of ischemic events as well as a 24‐hour landmark provide insight into the relation between baseline fibrinogen level and post‐PCI MACE beyond prior reports at 6 and 12 months of follow‐up.. Kaplan-Meier survival curves, based on the fibrinogen cutoff of 280 mg/dL, show early and persistent separation during 2‐year follow‐up after index PCI. A 24‐hour landmark analysis demonstrates that this relation persists after excluding ...
Since fibrinogen plays a key role in hemostasis and it is rapidly depleted during cardiac surgery, many cardiac surgeons give fibrinogen to control bleeding during surgery for high-risk patients. The efficacy of this treatment, however, had not been previously confirmed in large, randomized clinical trials. A recent study in the Netherlands randomized 120 high-risk cardiac surgery patients with intraoperative bleeding to receive either fibrinogen concentrate or a placebo during elective surgery. Over 70% of the surgeries were either coronary artery bypass grafts or valve repair or replacements, and the surgeries on average lasted more than three hours. Intraoperative blood loss was similar in both groups-the median blood loss in the patients that received fibrinogen concentrate was 50 mL (IQR 29-100 mL) while the group receiving the placebo lost a median of 70 mL of blood (IQR 33-145 mL; p=0.19). Furthermore, additional adverse events occurred in the patients who received fibrinogen up to 30 ...
The effect of low dose heparin therapy on fibrinogen survival in patients with cirrhosis was studied in six patients. Survival of 1-125 radiolabeled fibrinogen was measured using both autologous and homologous material. Average fibrinogen half-life before heparin therapy was 52 hours and after 3000 units of intravenous heparin every 6 hours was 101.8 hours. Median survival before heparin therapy was 56 hours and after therapy was 91 hours. In every instance fibrinogen survival was improved by heparin administration. These data indicate that low dose heparin improves fibrinogen survival in cirrhosis and suggest that disseminated intravascular coagulation is a primary process in the defibrination syndrome associated with cirrhosis. ...
Between 91-94.5% of the subjects included in this analysis reached platelet levels of ,50,000/mm3 at the end of DCS (Group ISS,25 87.1% vs. Group ISS ≤ 25 96%). In contrast, for the case of serum fibrinogen at the end of surgery (reported in 74.3% of the subjects), levels of ,150 mg/dl were only reached in 52-55% overall, with a non-significant low rate in the group with more severe lesions [41.4% vs. 60.6%. OR 2.17 (95% CI 0.77-6.15); p = 0.1]. Sensitivity analysis showed that in the best of the cases, mínimum accepted levels of temperature and serum fibrinogen at the end of DCS was reached only in 72% and 65%, respectively.. Discussion. This safety analysis focused in patients with penetrating injuries is part of an institutional multidisciplinary effort to improve care results in these patients. This prospective registry was performed at a referral university center that continuously schedules multidisciplinary sessions and promotes a constant effort to assure availability of technologies ...
An elevated concentration of fibrinogen in blood is a significant risk factor during many pathological diseases, as it leads to an increase in red blood cells (RBC) aggregation, resulting in hemorheological disorders. Despite the biomedical importance, the mechanisms of fibrinogen-induced RBC aggregation are still debatable. One of the discussed models is the non-specific adsorption of fibrinogen macromolecules onto the RBC membrane, leading to the cells bridging in aggregates. However, recent works point to the specific character of the interaction between fibrinogen and the RBC membrane. Fibrinogen is the major physiological ligand of glycoproteins receptors IIbIIIa (GPIIbIIIa or αIIββ3 or CD41/CD61). Inhibitors of GPIIbIIIa are widely used in clinics for the treatment of various cardiovascular diseases as antiplatelets agents preventing the platelets’ aggregation. However, the effects of GPIIbIIIa inhibition on RBC aggregation are not sufficiently well studied. The objective of
Fibrinogen is a protein that is essential for blood clot formation. Fibrinogen deficiency can result in excessive bleeding and high levels can cause inappropriate blood clot formation. Abnormal fibrinogen levels are also found in various other conditions such as severe infections, inflammation and cancers.
In this protocol, we will investigate fibrinogen metabolism in burn and trauma patients, using an 8h infusion of stable isotopes labeled amino acids (1-13C-phenylalanine, 2H5-phenylalanine, and 2H3-ketoisocaporate). The increase of the labeled amino acids incorporating into fibrinogen during the infusion and the decay of labeled fibrinogen after stopping the isotopes infusion (as measured by GC-MS) will be used to calculate fibrinogen synthesis and degradation. Stable isotopes are non-radioactive ...
The cytoadhesins represent a group of RGD receptors that belongs to the integrin superfamily of adhesion molecules. Members of this cytoadhesin family include the platelet GPIIb-IIIa and the vitronectin receptors. These glycoproteins share the same beta-subunit, which is associated with different alpha subunits to form an alpha/beta heterodimer. In the present study, we have analyzed the fine recognition specificy of the cytoadhesins from platelets and endothelial cells for the adhesive protein, fibrinogen. Two sets of synthetic peptides, RGDX peptides and peptides corresponding to the COOH terminus of the fibrinogen gamma chain, were compared for their structure-function relationships in the two cellular systems. The results indicate that: (a) both RGDX and gamma-chain peptides inhibit the binding of fibrinogen to platelets and endothelial cells; (b) a marked influence of the residue at the COOH- and NH2-terminal positions of each peptide set can be demonstrated on the two types; and (c) RGDX ...
BACKGROUND: The relationship between fibrinogen concentration and traumatic death has been poorly explored after severe trauma. Existing studies analysed this relationship in unselected trauma population, often considering fibrinogen concentration as a categorical variable. The aim of our study was to model the relationship between fibrinogen concentration and in-hospital mortality in severe trauma patients requiring massive transfusion using fibrinogen on admission as a continuous variable. METHODS: We designed a retrospective observational study based on prospectively collected data from 2009 to 2015 in seven French level-I trauma centres. All consecutive patients requiring a transfusion of at least 10 packed red blood cells (RBC) within 24 h were included. To assess the relationship between in-hospital death and fibrinogen concentration on admission, we performed generalized linear and additive models with death as a dependent variable. We also assessed the relationship between fibrinogen ...
A major challenge for biology in the genomic era is to find and map the QTLs for variation in medically important complex traits such as cardiovascular disease. Usually, it is extremely difficult to find these QTLs when the study focuses directly on the disease status (disease or no disease). Then, intermediate risk factors can be analyzed in the genetic search because they tend to be more proximal to gene action and thus provide less attenuated genetic signals than when a discrete clinical end point such as disease is analyzed. Also, risk or susceptibility to disease is primarily a quantitative process that reflects an unobservable continuous liability. Quantitative risk factors preserve the essential continuous nature of the liability relationship and thus contain additional genetic information that disease state by itself lacks.38. One of these intermediate risk factors is fibrinogen level, which is widely recognized as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease.39 The published ...

Vascular complications, such as HAT, are an important cause of graft loss and recipient mortality. We aimed to characterize post-transplant thrombotic events in a cohort of liver transplant recipients, and identify independent risk factors for these complications. We conducted a thrombophilic study of 293 orthotopic liver transplants performed in the Digestive Surgery Department of the 12 de Octubre Hospital (Madrid, Spain) between January 2001 and December 2006. The most frequent post-transplant thrombotic events were HAT (9%) and PVT (1.7%). The one variable associated with post-transplant thrombotic event was a high fibrinogen level in the global cohort of liver transplantation. But toxicity as event post-OLT has been associated with post-transplant thrombotic event in the retrospective group and high fibrinogen level and low protein C levels were associated post-transplant thrombotic event in the prospective group. Liver disease relapse (HR 6.609, p | 0.001), high levels of FVIII (HR 1.008, p = 0

N2 - Adhesive interactions of platelet integrin αIIbβ 3 with fibrinogen and fibrin are central events in hemostasis and thrombosis. However, the mechanisms by which αIIbβ 3 binds these ligands remain incompletely understood. We have recently demonstrated that αIIbβ3 binds the γ365-383 sequence in the γC-domain of fibrin(ogen). This sequence contains neither the AGDV nor the RGD recognition motifs, known to bind αIIbβ3, suggesting the different specificity of the integrin. Here, using peptide arrays, mutant fibrinogens, and recombinant mutant γC-domains, we have examined the mechanism whereby αIIbβ3 binds γ365-383. The αIIbβ3-binding ...
microglia phenotype. Supporting this, we show fibrinogen conditioned microglia medium caused extensive CGC death to a level comparable with fibrin or LPS. There was also significant induction of pro-inflammatory factors from both primary microglia and CGC cultures after exposure to fibrin or fibrinogen. The increase of these factors in CGC cultures was attributed to microglia because leucine methyl ester (LME) depletion of microglia significantly attenuated the response. We propose that both fibrin and fibrinogen have the potential to cause indirect neurotoxicity via a microglia mediated pathway involving pro-inflammatory factors, but only fibrinogen is directly neurotoxic.. ...
Cardiac surgery in children may be associated with excessive perioperative bleeding. Perioperative excessive bleeding is associated with need of transfusion with allogeneic blood products such as red blood cells, fresh frozen plasma, platelet pools, and cryoprecipitate. Furthermore, bleeding may result in re-exploration, which is associated with increased morbidity and mortality.Recent studies have shown that patients and children undergoing cardiac surgery with pump often experience a significant drop in their levels and function of fibrinogen, and it would be in part responsible for the bleeding. In most centre world-wide, it is common practice to treat bleeding in these patients with cryoprecipitate in order to substitute fibrinogen. Fibrinogen concentrate (Haemocomplettan P)may reduce perioperative bleeding, requirements of blood transfusion and clinical outcomes in children undergoing cardiac surgery with pump, compared to cryoprecipitate ...
The fibrinogen activity test is also known as a Factor I assay. Its used to determine the level of fibrinogen in your blood.

Diluted plasma is clotted with a high concentration of Thrombin. The tested plasma is diluted (usually 1:10 but this may vary if the Fibrinogen concentration is very low or very high) to minimize the effect of inhibitory substances within the plasma e.g. heparin, elevated levels of FDPs. The use of a high concentration of Thrombin (typically 100 U/ml) ensures that the clotting times are independent of Thrombin concentration over a wide range of Fibrinogen levels. The test requires a reference plasma with a known Fibrinogen concentration and that has been calibrated against a known international reference standard. A calibration curve is constructed using this reference plasma by preparing a series of dilutions (1:5 -1:40) in the buffer to give a range of Fibrinogen concentrations. The clotting time of each of these dilutions is established (using duplicate samples) and the results (clotting time(s)/Fibrinogen concentration (g/L) are plotted on Log-Log graph paper. The 1:10 concentration is ...

Upon stimulation, polymorphonuclear leucocytes (PMNs) release potent serine proteases, i.e. elastase, cathepsin C and proteinase 3, which contribute to the degradation of tissue and plasma components. Here, we describe the development of a plasma test to assess PMN-mediated fibrinogenolysis as a biochemical marker for actual PMN-derived proteolysis in vivo, useful for monitoring therapeutic efficacy, i.e. of elastase inhibitors. We generated a monoclonal antibody (MAb), designated 1-1/B3, with a high affinity for elastase-degraded fibrinogen (EDF). The epitope for 1-1/B3 becomes exposed in a time-dependent manner during digestion of fibrinogen with purified PMN-derived serine proteases and with isolated PMNs in vitro. However, 1-1/B3 does not react with plasma fibrinogen or with fibrin(ogen) degradation products generated by plasmin or by other active proteases that may occur locally, i.e. metalloproteases and lysosomal cathepsins. On the basis of MAb 1-1/B3, we developed a plasma test for the ...

The present study is the premier clinical attempt to scrutinize the practicability of prophylactic fibrinogen infusion in patients undergoing heart transplantation (HT). A total of 67 consecutive patients who had undergone HT between January 2012 and December 2014 were assessed. After exclusion of some patients, 23 patients were given preoperative 2 g fibrinogen concentrate over a period of 15 minutes after the termination of cardiopulmonary bypass pump and complete reversal of heparin, and 30 patients were not given. Some laboratories were measured before general anesthesia and at 6 and 24 hours after surgery. In addition, major adverse events were also evaluated during hospitalization. The mean age of the patients was 39.5 ± 11.4 years, with a predominance of male sex (77.4%). All laboratories at baseline were comparable between groups. The length of hospital stay was longer in the control group compared to the fibrinogen group (20 [16-22] ...
Nitric oxide (NO) release can promote healthy tissue regeneration. A PEG-fibrinogen adhesive hydrogel that would allow for inducible NO release was created with mechanical properties that could be tailored to specific applications and tissue types. PEG (4-arm)-fibrinogen hydrogels of varying ratios were derivatized with S-nitroso-N-acetyl-D, L-penicillamine (SNAP)-thiolactone to create an active NO donor material. Controlled release from gels was established using light as the activating source, although temperature, pH, and external mechanical loading are also means to induce active NO release. Gels with varying ratios of fibrinogen to PEG were made, derivatized, and tested. Gels below a ratio of 1.5:1 (fibrinogen:PEG) did not gel, while at ratio of 1.5:1 gelation occurs and NO release can be induced. Interestingly, the release from 1.5:1 gels was significantly lower compared to 2:1 and 3:1 gel formulations. Rheometric data show that lower ratio gels are more elastic than viscous. Derivatized gels

SUMMARY Hereditary fibrinogen abnormalities make up two classes of plasma fibrinogen defects: (1) type I, afibrinogenemia or hypofibrinogenemia, in which there are low or absent plasma fibrinogen antigen levels (quantitative fibrinogen deficiencies), and (2) type II, dysfibrinogenemia or hypodysfibrinogenemia, in which there are normal or reduced antigen levels associated with disproportionately low functional activity (qualitative fibrinogen deficiencies). In afibrinogenemia, most mutations of the three encoding genes of fibrinogen chains are null. In some cases, missense or late-truncating nonsense mutations allow synthesis of the corresponding fibrinogen chain, but intracellular fibrinogen assembly and/or secretion is impaired. In certain hypofibrinogenemic cases, the mutant fibrinogen molecules are produced and retained in the rough endoplasmic reticulum of hepatocytes in the form of inclusion bodies, causing endoplasmic reticulum storage disease. Afibrinogenemia is associated with mild to ...
Obkective: Fibrinogen levels and fibrinogen clot structure have been implicated in pathogenesis of vascular disease. We examined fibrinogen levels and variation in fibrinogen genes (fibrinogen γ (FGG), α (FGA) and β (FGB)), associated with fibrin clot structure and fibrinogen levels, in relation to cerebral small vessel disease (SVD). Methods and Results This study was performed in the Rotterdam Scan Study, a population-based study among 1077 elderly with cerebral magnetic resonance imaging. Plasma fibrinogen levels and haplotypes were determined. We examined the association of fibrinogen levels and haplotypes with silent brain infarcts and white matter lesions by means of logistic regression models. We constructed seven haplotypes (frequency ,0.01) that describe the total common variation in the FGG and FGA genes. Haplotype 2 (G-A-T-A-G-T-G) was associated with presence of silent brain infarcts when compared to the most frequent haplotype (G-G-T-G-G-T-A) (odds ratio (OR) 1.41, 95% CI ...
OBJECTIVE--To assess the effect of physical activity on plasma fibrinogen and factor VII activity and thus on the risk of ischaemic heart disease. DESIGN--Cross sectional survey. SETTING--Ten group practices in the Medical Research Councils General Practice Research Framework. PATIENTS--3967 men aged 45-69 attending screening clinics for the thrombosis prevention trial. METHODS--Structured interview to elicit the intensity and frequency of physical exercise during past month. Measurement of fibrinogen, factor VII activity, cholesterol concentration, blood pressure, and other indices of ischaemic heart disease risk. RESULTS--Strenuous exercise was associated with significantly lower fibrinogen concentrations than mild exercise, implying a difference of about 15% in the risk of ischaemic heart disease. Strenuous exercise was also associated with lower cholesterol concentrations. More frequent strenuous exercise was associated with lower factor VII activity. CONCLUSIONS--With the recognition of ...

Rabbits in two groups were given different doses of sodium fluoride i.e. low dose (10 mg NaF/kg body weight) and high dose (50 mg NaF/kg body weight). Blood was drawn from both groups on certain specific days after fluoride administration. The two different doses of sodium fluoride gave different response with regards to the fibrinogen levels in blood plasma. It is suggested that administration of low doses of sodium fluoride, induce new bone formation enhancing fibrinogen levels. But in high doses of sodium fluoride, moderate tissue damage results in high levels of plasma fibrinogen. ...
BACKGROUND: After cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), acquired coagulopathy often leads to post-CPB bleeding. Though multifactorial in origin, this coagulopathy is often aggravated by deficient fibrinogen levels. OBJECTIVE: To assess whether laboratory and thrombelastometric testing on CPB can predict plasma fibrinogen immediately after CPB weaning. PATIENTS / METHODS: This prospective study in 110 patients undergoing major cardiovascular surgery at risk of post-CPB bleeding compares fibrinogen level (Clauss method) and function (fibrin-specific thrombelastometry) in order to study the predictability of their course early after termination of CPB. Linear regression analysis and receiver operating characteristics were used to determine correlations and predictive accuracy. RESULTS: Quantitative estimation of post-CPB Clauss fibrinogen from on-CPB fibrinogen was feasible with small bias (+0.19 g/l), but with poor precision and a percentage of error |30%.

Fibrinogen is a glycoprotein having a molecular weight of 340kDA, which is widely employed for its clinical application in treating bleeding disorders worldwide. The drug posology recommended when the fibrinogen blood levels are unknown is 70 mg/kg body weight, and the rate of injection should not exceed 5ml per minute.. Congenital fibrinogen deficiency is representing the largest market share in the clinical application segment for the fibrinogen market. According to the latest statistics provided by the Orphanet Journal of Rare Diseases the global prevalence rate of congenital fibrinogen deficiency is 1-9 per 1 00,0000 individuals worldwide. It occurs due to the genetic mutations occurring in the FGG, FGA, and FGB genes, it is important to note that afibrinogenemia is autosomal recessive, whereas the dysfibrinogenemia and hypofibrinogenemia are autosomal dominant. Coagulopathic bleeding is set to showcase exemplary market performance during the forecast period on account of the supportive ...
Finally, on a more speculative note, we would like briefly to discuss why there is evidently a physiologic mechanism that enables inflammatory cells to recognize the partially denatured fibrinogen that accumulates on implant surfaces. Fibrin and fibrinogen degradation products, but not soluble fibrinogen, are known to participate in many situations that lead to inflammation and/or phagocyte recruitment. These include delayed-type hypersensitivity reactions, trauma, fibrosis, the reaction to many different types of solid tumors, and wound-healing reactions (49-58). It follows that surface-immobilized fibrinogen may resemble fibrin or fibrin degradation products. Fibrinolysis and fibrin degradation products are probably not involved in biomaterial-mediated inflammatory responses, because the powerful protease inhibitor, Trasylol, has no effect in vivo on the extent of acute inflammatory responses to biomaterial implants (59). Rather, the denatured fibrinogen bound to biomaterial implants may ...
Fibrinogen is a plasma protein that has been reported to be associated with an increased risk of atherothrombotic diseases and venous thrombosis. The most common polymorphism that has been studied so far in different populations is the G-455→A polymorphism in the promoter region of the β-fibrinogen gene. We studied 160 healthy unrelated Lebanese individuals for the prevalence of -455G-G, -455G-A and -455A-A genotypes of the β-fibrinogen gene and the frequency of G and A alleles using a reverse hybridization PCR assay. The prevalence of the G-G, G-A, and A-A genotypes were found to be 60.6, 31.9 and 7.5percent, respectively. The frequency of the G and A alleles were found to be 0.77 and 0.23, respectively. As compared to other ethnic groups, the Lebanese individuals were found to have a relatively high prevalence of the A allele which may predispose them to develop cardiovascular diseases as well as thrombotic events. This study provides additional unique genetic information pertaining to the ...

BACKGROUND: Dysfibrinogenemia is a rare group of qualitative fibrinogen disorders caused by structural abnormalities in the fibrinogen molecule. The laboratory diagnosis of dysfibrinogenemia is controversial. Fibrinogen Paris V, clinically termed Dusart Syndrome, is a dysfibrinogenemia caused by a single base substitution in the gene coding for the Aα-chain of the fibrinogen molecule. OBJECTIVES: To diagnose the first Scandinavian family with Fibrinogen Paris V affecting several family members; the proband, a seven-year-old boy with cerebral vein thrombosis. METHODS: The diagnosis was established following the ISTH guideline for laboratory testing supplemented with fibrin structure analysis and fibrinogen gene analysis. RESULTS: Prolonged thrombin time and reduced ratio between the functional and the protein concentration of fibrinogen were observed in four family members who also were characterized by significantly reduced fibrin polymerization (p , 0.001), reduced fibrin fibre diameter (p , ...
Objectives The inhalation of dust from swine confinement buildings causes inflammatory responses in the airways with a rise of interleukin-6 (IL-6). The purpose of this study was to confirm the increase in serum IL-6 after inhalation of swine dust and investigate a possible increase in plasma fibrinogen.. Methods Eight healthy nonsmoking volunteers inhaled dust for 4 hours inside a swine confinement building. Inhalable dust and endotoxin were sampled. The concentrations of IL-6 and fibrinogen were determined in serum and plasma.. Results The study showed a clear increase in the concentrations of IL-6 and fibrinogen after exposure.. Conclusion As fibrinogen is an important risk factor for ischemic heart disease, the increased concentration of fibrinogen among persons exposed to swine dust may increase the risk for this disease.. ...

S-Nitrosoglutathione, (50 muM) inhibited the initial rate of thrombin-catalyzed fibrinogen polymerization by ∼80%. The fact that the same concentration of S-nitrosoglutathione had no effect on thrombin-dependent hydrolysis of tosylglycylprolylarginine-4-nitranilide acetate suggested that the nitrosothiol was affecting fibrinogen structure. This was confirmed by circular dichroism spectroscopy where S-nitrosoglutathione and S-nitrosohomocysteine increased the alpha-helical content of fibrinogen by ∼19% and 11% respectively. S-carboxymethylamido derivatives of glutathione or Hcys had no effect on the fibrinogen 2° structure. The S-nitrosothiol-dependent 2° structural effects were reversed upon gel filtration chromatography suggesting that the effects were allosteric. Further evidence for fibrinogen-S-nitrosoglutathione interactions were obtained from S-nitrosoglutathione-dependent quenching of the intrinsic fibrinogen Trp fluorescence as well as the quenching of the S-NO circular dichroic absorbance

AU - Winther Jensen, Bjorn. AU - Griesser, Hans J.. PY - 2006/1/3. Y1 - 2006/1/3. N2 - Interaction forces between surfaces designed to be protein resistant and fibrinogen (Fg) were investigated in phosphate-buffered saline with colloid probe atomic force microscopy. The surfaces of the silica probes were coated with a layer of fibrinogen molecules by adsorption from the buffer. The technique of low-power, pulsed AC plasma polymerization was used to make poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG)-like coatings on poly(ethylene teraphthalate) by using diethylene glycol vinyl ether as the monomer gas. The degree of PEG-like nature of the films was controlled by use of a different effective plasma power in the chamber for each coating, ranging from 0.6 to 3.6 W. This produced a series of thin films with a different number ...
To determine the significance of the gamma2 calcium-binding site in fibrin polymerization, we synthesized the fibrinogen variant, gammaD298,301A. We expected these two alanine substitutions to prevent calcium binding in the gamma2 site. We examined the influence of calcium on the polymerization of gammaD298,301A fibrinogen, evaluated its plasmin susceptibility, and solved 2.7 and 2.4 A crystal structures of the variant with the peptide ligands Gly-Pro-Arg-Pro-amide (GPRP) and Gly-His-Arg-Pro-amide (GHRP), respectively. We found that thrombin-catalyzed polymerization of gammaD298,301A fibrinogen was modestly impaired, whereas batroxobin-catalyzed polymerization was significantly impaired relative to normal fibrinogen. Notably, the influence of calcium on polymerization was the same for the variant and for normal fibrinogen. Fibrinogen gammaD298,301A was more susceptible to plasmin proteolysis in the presence of GPRP. This finding suggests structural changes in the near-by a polymerization site. ...

Human plasma containing the Australia (hepatitis-associated) antigen was fractionated by the cold ethanol method of Cohn, Strong, Hughes, Mulford, Ashworth, Melin, and Taylor (1946) and small aliquots were examined for the presence of this antigen by immunodiffusion and by electron microscopy. The findings were in general agreement with the postulated risk of transmitting hepatitis by blood derivatives. The Australia (hepatitis-associated) antigen was detected in fibrinogen, thrombin, and antihaemophilic globulin as well as in other fractions. The antigen was not found in gamma globulin (immunoglobulin fraction) nor in albumin.. The use of radioiodinated fibrinogen for the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis is discussed and it is concluded that the use of fibrinogen for diagnostic procedures should be assessed against the possible risk of hepatitis.. ...
Kirsty McAleese, PhD, of Newcastle University, Newcastle, UK, discusses her research into fibrinogen leakage in the white matter of Alzheimers disease and normal aged brains, and the implications of the findings for fibrinogen as a biomarker. Dr McAleese highlights the notable results for extravascular fibrinogen and cerebral small vessel disease pathology. This interview took place at the Alzheimers Research UK (ARUK) Conference 2019, held in Harrogate, UK.
Blood-brain barrier disruption, microglial activation and neurodegeneration are hallmarks of multiple sclerosis. However, the initial triggers that activate innate immune responses and their role in axonal damage remain unknown. Here we show that the blood protein fibrinogen induces rapid microglial responses toward the vasculature and is required for axonal damage in neuroinflammation. Using in vivo two-photon microscopy, we demonstrate that microglia form perivascular clusters before myelin loss or paralysis onset and that, of the plasma proteins, fibrinogen specifically induces rapid and sustained microglial responses in vivo. Fibrinogen leakage correlates with areas of axonal damage and induces reactive oxygen species release in microglia. Blocking fibrin formation with anticoagulant treatment or genetically eliminating the fibrinogen binding motif recognized by the microglial integrin receptor CD11b/CD18 inhibits perivascular microglial clustering and axonal damage. Thus, early and ...

CD61, also called integrin beta-3, belongs to the integrin protein family that participates in cell adhesion and cell-surface mediated signalling by forming heterodimers of alpha and beta integrin chains. Integrin alpha-V/beta-3 is a receptor for cytoactin, fibronectin, laminin, matrix metalloproteinase-2, osteopontin, osteomodulin, prothrombin, thrombospondin, vitronectin and von Willebrand factor. Integrin alpha-IIb/beta-3 is a receptor for fibronectin, fibrinogen, plasminogen, prothrombin, thrombospondin and vitronectin. These two integrins recognize the sequence RGD in a wide array of ligands. Integrin IIb/IIIa recognizes the sequence HHLGGGAKQAGDV in fibrinogen gamma chain. Following activation, integrin alpha-IIb/beta-3 supports platelet/platelet interaction through binding of soluble fibrinogen, leading to rapid platelet aggregation which physically plugs ruptured endothelial surface. Defects in CD61 are a cause of Glanzmann thrombasthenia, a blot clot disorder ...
The minimization of blood loss represents a significant clinical need in the arena of surgery, trauma, and emergency response medicine. Fibrinogen is our bodys native polymer system activated in response to tissue and vasculature injury, and forms the foundation of the most widely employed surgical sealant and hemostatic agent. Non-covalent knob:hole interactions are central to the assembly of fibrin that leads to network and clot formation. This project exploits these affinity interactions as a strategy to direct fibrin polymerization dynamics and network structure so as to develop a temperature-triggered polymerizing fibrin mixture for surgical applications. Short peptides modeled after fibrin knob sequences have been shown to alter fibrin matrix structure by competing with native fibrin knobs for binding to the available holes on fibrinogen and fibrin. The fusion of such knob peptides to a non-native component should facilitate binding of the fused component to fibrinogen/fibrin, and may ...

Fibrinogen is a pleiotropic blood protein that regulates coagulation, inflammation and tissue repair. Fibrinogen extravasates in the nervous system after injury or disease associated with vascular damage or blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption. Fibrinogen is not merely a marker of BBB disruption, but plays a causative role in neurologic disease as a potent inducer of inflammation and an inhibitor of neurite outgrowth. Fibrinogen mediates functions in the nervous system as a ligand for cell-specific receptors. In microglia, fibrinogen mediates activation of Akt and Rho via the CD11b/CD18 integrin receptor, while in neurons fibrinogen induces phosphorylation of epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor via the alphavbeta3 integrin. Pharmacologic targeting of the interactions of fibrinogen with its nervous system receptors could provide novel strategies for therapeutic intervention in neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases. ...

BACKGROUND:. There is debate about the value of assessing levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) and other biomarkers of inflammation for the prediction of first cardiovascular events.. METHODS:. We analyzed data from 52 prospective studies that included 246,669 participants without a history of cardiovascular disease to investigate the value of adding CRP or fibrinogen levels to conventional risk factors for the prediction of cardiovascular risk. We calculated measures of discrimination and reclassification during follow-up and modeled the clinical implications of initiation of statin therapy after the assessment of CRP or fibrinogen.. RESULTS:. The addition of information on high-density lipoprotein cholesterol to a prognostic model for cardiovascular disease that included age, sex, smoking status, blood pressure, history of diabetes, and total cholesterol level increased the C-index, a measure of risk discrimination, by 0.0050. The further addition to this model of information on CRP or ...

AU - Newcomer, K. A.. AU - Jansholt, A. L.. AU - Carretta, R. F.. AU - Rose, A. W.. PY - 1977. Y1 - 1977. N2 - Analysis of 55 positive tests of a total of 300 tests by conventional criteria revealed that 125I-fibrinogen provides useful information early enough for clinical management. Of the tests which were ultimately interpreted as positive by conventional criteria, at least one was positive at 3-4 hours in 67% of the tests and 98% of the tests were positive at 24 hours after the administration of 125I-fibrinogen. A 20% difference between contralateral identical locations of the legs and a 20% difference between adjacent locations of the ipsilateral leg were found with almost equal frequency in the positive tests, whereas a 20% increase at the same location was less sensitive. The 125I-fibrinogen ...
Fibrinogen, coagulation factor VII (FVII), and factor VIII (FVIII) and its carrier von Willebrand factor (vWF) play key roles in hemostasis. Previously identified common variants explain only a small fraction of the trait heritabilities, and additional variations may be explained by associations with rarer variants with larger effects. The aim of this study was to identify low-frequency (minor allele frequency [MAF] ≥0.01 and ,0.05) and rare (MAF ,0.01) variants that influence plasma concentrations of these 4 hemostatic factors by meta-analyzing exome chip data from up to 76 000 participants of 4 ancestries. We identified 12 novel associations of low-frequency (n = 2) and rare (n = 10) variants across the fibrinogen, FVII, FVIII, and vWF traits that were independent of previously identified associations. Novel loci were found within previously reported genes and had effect sizes much larger than and independent of previously identified common variants. In addition, associations at KCNT1, HID1, ...

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) can degrade a number of proteins that constitute the extracellular matrix. Previous studies have shown that atherosclerotic plaques contain substantial amounts of fibrin(ogen)-related antigen, and more recently, MMPs have been identified in such lesions. The hypothesis that MMPs play a role in the degradation of fibrinogen (Fg) and cross-linked fibrin (XL-Fb) was investigated. Fibrinogen became thrombin-unclottable when treated with matrix metalloproteinase 3 (MMP-3, stromelysin 1) but not with matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP-2, gelatinase A). Incubation of XL-Fb clots (made with 125I-Fg) with MMP-3 resulted in complete lysis after 24 h. A D monomer-like fragment was generated by MMP-3 degradation of fibrinogen, XL-Fb, and fragment DD. Immunoreactivity with monoclonal antibody (MoAb)/4-2 (anti-gamma 392-406) but not with MoAb/4A5 (anti-gamma 397-411) suggested that a major cleavage site was within the sequence participating in the cross-linking of two gamma-chains.

The pathogenic potential of S. aureus is a consequence of its multitude of VFs that have evolved to interact with a number of host molecules. As a result, S. aureus can survive and thrive at many tissue sites in the host and cause a wide range of diseases. Fg is a surprisingly common target for many of the staphylococcal VFs. The known Fg binding staphylococcal proteins largely fall into two groups: a family of structurally related cell wall-anchored proteins of the MSCRAMM (microbial surface components recognizing adhesive matrix molecules) type, which include ClfA, ClfB, FnbpA, FnbpB, and Bbp/SdrE (24) and a group of secreted smaller proteins (sometimes referred to as the SERAMs [secretable expanded repertoire adhesive molecules]), which include Efb, Coa, vWbp, Emp (extracellular matrix binding protein), and Eap (extracellular adherence protein) (25). The Fg binding sites in the MSCRAMMs are located in a segment of the proteins composed of two IgG folded subdomains that interact with Fg by ...

Such conduits in use today have a low patency rate, leaving room for much improvement. METHODS: This experimental study investigated the dynamics of the early attachment of radiolabelled platelets, leucocytes and fibrinogen to endothelial cell-seeded Dacron venous conduits in sheep. Grafts were placed as jugular vein interposition grafts, seeded on one side, not seeded on the other, and followed for 4 h. RESULTS: No difference could be demonstrated between the two graft types. Platelets showed an increasing attachment during the whole period, leucocytes an immediate attachment followed by an undulating pattern, and fibrinogen an immediate attachment with a tendency to decrease. Measurements on the vein itself showed a high attachment and, for platelets, an extremely high attachment when measured after the graft in the direction ...
The concluding paragraph of this abstract ends with this sentence: DNA analysis is therefore mandatory, regardless of family history, in all patients with renal amyloidosis with selective glomerular involvement, in whom AA or AL fibril type cannot be definitively confirmed. In other words, the authors recommend that in cases where a kidney biopsy shows amyloid deposits primarily in the glomeruli, and AA or AL amyloidosis cannot be confirmed, DNA analysis should be done to look for fibrinogen mutations. That makes sense based on the biopsy findings that have been reported in all the cases up to this point. There are always deposits in the glomeruli, with occasional deposits elsewhere to a lesser extent. The amyloid often cannot be typed, even with immunohistochemistry. We dont need to look any further than Moms biopsy report to see an example of this. The diagnosis was amyloidosis, with this comment: There is Lambda greater than Kappa staining but not significant enough to definitively state ...

  • In this study, we measured fibrinogen production and whole-body protein turnover under both basal and hyperinsulinemic states, in hypertensive [H] and control [C] subjects, using a leucine stable isotope tracer and precursor-product relationships. (
  • METHODS AND RESULTS: Since hypertension is often a feature of the 'metabolic', insulin resistance syndrome, which in turn affects both fibrinogen kinetics and whole-body protein turnover, we selected hypertensive subjects without the metabolic syndrome. (

(
  • In 613 patients with end-stage liver disease who underwent liver transplantation between 2008 and 2019, preoperative low fibrinogen levels were associated with more blood loss but not worse 1-y survival in univariate and multivariate statistical models. (
  • This new report identifies intravenous fibrinogen usage from over 70 countries in 2019 and 2020 based on actual usage data in markets surveyed by the MRB. (
  • In any model of coagulation, fibrinogen is the substrate required to create an effective clot and provide hemostasis. (
  • Like most components of hemostasis, fibrinogen is synthesized by the liver and reduced in severe liver disease. (
  • Additionally, and maybe more commonly‚ dysfibrinogenemia occurs in liver disease resulting in defects of the fibrinogen structure with undetermined effects on hemostasis. (
  • The assumption is that fibrinogen levels that are below 3 g/L before surgery may decrease more during transplantation to a level that actually impairs hemostasis. (
  • The primary physiologic role of fibrinogen is in hemostasis. (
  • These results render it unlikely that any relationship between the Ib polymorphism and arterial thrombosis is mediated by a significant effect on fibrinogen binding. (
  • Fibrinogen levels can also contribute to thrombosis, in which the blood clots too much. (
  • [ 1 ] Dysfibrinogenemia is a qualitative defect in fibrinogen (type II) marked by functional abnormalities of fibrinogen who carry one abnormal allele that may result in either bleeding or thrombosis. (
  • Acquired fibrinogen deficiency can be associated with several clinical conditions including excessive blood loss in the setting of surgery, trauma or postpartum hemorrhage, hemodilution from from massive transfusion, liver disease, increased consumption in the setting of cancer, DIC or tPA therapy, or assay interference with direct or other thrombin inhibitors. (
  • Fibrinogen as an intravenous purified plasma product has two markets: a small congenital deficiency replacement market and a much larger acquired fibrinogen deficiency market for patients with massive hemorrhage. (
  • Fibrinogen disorders can be quantitative (afibrinogenemia) or qualitative (dysfibrinogenemia), and they may be congenital or acquired. (
  • The true prevalence of congenital fibrinogen disorders is unknown. (
  • The approval extends the market authorisation for fibryga ® , which is already approved for use in patients with congenital fibrinogen deficiency. (
  • Unlike with rare congenital fibrinogen deficiencies, AFD arises when excessive blood loss, and so clotting, caused by trauma or major surgery use up the fibrinogen reserves in the blood. (
  • Congenital abnormalities of fibrinogen are divided into two types: type I, or quantitative abnormalities (afibrinogenemia and hypofibrinogenemia), and type II, or qualitative abnormalities (dysfibrinogenemia and hypodysfibrinogenemia). (
  • This stress-induced elevation of fibrinogen is due to the fact that fibrinogen helps to provide some protection against excessive bleeding. (
  • You won't see the word "fibrinogen" in any of those articles, but some excellent detective work by somebody (not me) did uncover the fact that fibrinogen amyloidosis is the type this family has. (
  • Results of this study suggest that fibrinogen may be a useful adjunct diagnostic for measuring inflammation in this species. (
  • These results suggest that fibrinogen has a novel cryptic determinant, which can exert apoptosis-inducing activity on endothelial cells when exposed, and polypeptides containing this determinant have therapeutic potential. (
  • There is a good evidence to suggest that hypofibrinogenemia in trauma is associated with worse outcomes and it is postulated that early replacement of fibrinogen and red blood cells packages may reduce hemorrhage and improve outcomes even in the pre-hospital phase of care. (
  • Afibrinogenemia is defined as a deficiency or absence of fibrinogen (coagulation factor I) in the blood. (
  • However, patients treated with fibryga ® experienced more rapid and pronounced replenishment of plasma fibrinogen levels and blood clot firmness. (
  • When the body needs the blood to clot, a reaction between fibrinogen and thrombin is created, turning the fibrinogen into fibrin , a stringy substance which slowly mats over to create a clot of blood. (
  • Fibrinogen plays an important role in blood clot formation. (
  • I must have normal levels of fibrinogen, because even though it takes several minutes for a bleeding wound to clot, it always does so without any issues. (
  • In the final step of the coagulation cascade, fibrinogen is converted to fibrin, with formation of a fibrin clot. (
  • Although the primary function of fibrinogen is in fibrin clot formation, it has a multitude of other functions, including nonsubstrate thrombin binding, platelet aggregation, and fibrinolysis. (
  • Exposure of its nonsubstrate thrombin-binding sites after fibrin clot formation promotes the antithrombotic properties of fibrinogen. (
  • Fibrinogen and coagulation factor XIII (FXIII) are the key proteins involved in clot formation producing a stable clot resistant to degradation. (
  • A prolonged CFT suggests impaired or slow clot propagation, often a PLT issue or low fibrinogen. (
  • Fibrinogen levels are typically also tested as part of the DIC panel ( fibrin , fibrin monomer, platelet, prothrombin time [PT], partial thromboplastin time [PTT], international normalized ratio for prothrombin time, D-dimer ). (
  • A growing body of evidence has identified fibrinogen as an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease, the major cause of death in the U.S. The objective of including this measure was to provide data on laboratory, clinical, and socio-demographic correlates of fibrinogen levels. (
  • Of particular importance in NHANES, the data can be used to study the relationship between fibrinogen levels and clinically measured lower extremity arterial blood flow as assessed by the Ankle-Brachial Index in the Lower Extremity Disease component. (
  • In this issue of Transplantation , Carrier et al 1 describe a study that assesses the effect of preoperative fibrinogen levels on perioperative bleeding and outcomes. (
  • This effect was most prominent when fibrinogen levels were below 3 g/L before surgery. (
  • The results of Carrier et al suggest that low preoperative fibrinogen levels may be an indicator that a patient is at risk for increased intraoperative bleeding. (
  • This risk of bleeding increased when fibrinogen levels were below 3 g/L before surgery, a level that is far higher than what has traditionally been considered a concerning threshold. (
  • An association with bleeding (even in a multivariate model) does not necessarily mean that replacing fibrinogen with levels over 3 g/L will reduce the risk of bleeding. (
  • Plasma fibrinogen levels in normal and sick cows. (
  • Numerous studies have shown that elevated levels of fibrinogen are a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease. (
  • Elevated fibrinogen levels are considered to be as much of a serious a risk factor for cardiovascular disease as hypertension, cigarette smoking, and diabetes. (
  • Despite the extensive research there is still some debate among experts as to whether or not elevated levels of fibrinogen actually cause health problems. (
  • Because elevated levels of fibrinogen could also be the result of other pathological conditions, it is unclear as to exactly how harmful excessive fibrinogen is to the body. (
  • Fibrinogen levels are elevated in times of stress. (
