Values of three coagulation screening tests of precolostral calves. (1/733)

Prothrombin times, partial thromboplastin times and platelet counts were performed to determine normal values and to screen for coagulation defects of precolostral calves. The precolostral calves were in two groups: one group of a few calves was tested two years before the second larger group. The results for both groups were similar. The tests were performed on postcolostral calves and on mature cows to compare their values with those of precolostral calves. The mean values of prothrombin times and partial thromboplastin times of precolostral calves in the first group were 18.8 seconds and 54.8 seconds respectively. The mean values of prothrombin times and partial thromboplastin times of precolostral calves in the second group were 18.8 seconds and 50.8 seconds respectively. The mean platelet count was 422,400/cmm for the first group and 482,800/cmm for the second group.  (+info)

Factor VII as a marker of hepatocellular synthetic function in liver disease. (2/733)

Factor VII levels have been measured in 100 patients with liver disease following parenteral vitamin K1 therapy. There was good agreement between specific factor VII measurements and the one-stage prothrombin time apart from six patients with compensated cirrhosis in whom the prothrombin time was prolonged despite the presence of normal factor VII levels. A mean activity of 58% was found in patients with cirrhosis. Cirrhotic patients with features of hepatic decompensation had a significantly lower mean level of activity (40%) than the "contrast" patients with surgical obstruction of the major bile ducts (93%). Patients with chronic active liver disease had moderate depression of factor VII levels and those with non-cirrhotic liver damage had mean activities similar to the contrast group. Factor VII levels could not be correlated with BSP retention but there was a correlation with serum albumin concentration. It is concluded that the prothrombin time using Quick test with a standardized thromboplastin showing good sensitivity to factor VII, eg, the Manchester reagent (BCT), provides a reliable index of coagulability in chronic liver disease, and specific factor VII assays are not indicated.  (+info)

Medical liability risk avoidance: a case for adopting the International Normalized Ratio (INR) system. (3/733)

Since bleeding is a common adverse effect associated with the oral anticoagulant warfarin, maximizing the therapeutic potential of this drug requires close laboratory monitoring. The International Normalized Ratio (INR) is a system that has been developed to improve and standardize the assessment of the intensity of oral anticoagulation therapy. Clinical information and medicolegal arguments supporting the adoption of this system are reviewed. The potential for improvement in patient outcomes and minimization of medical liability favors the adoption of the INR system.  (+info)

Effect of liver disease and transplantation on urea synthesis in humans: relationship to acid-base status. (4/733)

It has been suggested that hepatic urea synthesis, which consumes HCO-3, plays an important role in acid-base homeostasis. This study measured urea synthesis rate (Ra urea) directly to assess its role in determining the acid-base status in patients with end-stage cirrhosis and after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). Cirrhotic patients were studied before surgery (n = 7) and on the second postoperative day (n = 11), using a 5-h primed-constant infusion of [15N2]urea. Six healthy volunteers served as controls. Ra urea was 5.05 +/- 0.40 (SE) and 3.11 +/- 0.51 micromol. kg-1. min-1, respectively, in controls and patients with cirrhosis (P < 0. 05). Arterial base excess was 0.6 +/- 0.3 meq/l in controls and -1.1 +/- 1.3 meq/l in cirrhotic patients (not different). After OLT, Ra urea was 15.05 +/- 1.73 micromol. kg-1. min-1, which accompanied an arterial base excess of 7.0 +/- 0.3 meq/l (P < 0.001). We conclude that impaired Ra urea in cirrhotic patients does not produce metabolic alkalosis. Concurrent postoperative metabolic alkalosis and increased Ra urea indicate that the alkalosis is not caused by impaired Ra urea. It is consistent with, but does not prove, the concept that the graft liver responds to metabolic alkalosis by augmenting Ra urea, thus increasing HCO-3 consumption and moderating the severity of metabolic alkalosis produced elsewhere.  (+info)

Adenovirus-mediated local expression of human tissue factor pathway inhibitor eliminates shear stress-induced recurrent thrombosis in the injured carotid artery of the rabbit. (5/733)

The main cause of acute coronary syndrome may be recurrent thrombosis, which is initiated by the activation of the extrinsic coagulation pathway. Tissue factor (TF) pathway inhibitor (TFPI) efficiently inhibits an early step in this pathway by the formation of a complex with factor VIIa, TF, and factor Xa. We determined whether local TFPI gene transfer can inhibit thrombosis in an injured artery without inducing systemic side effects. Balloon-injured rabbit carotid arteries were infected with an adenoviral vector that expressed either human TFPI (AdCATFPI) or bacterial beta-galactosidase (AdCALacZ). Two to 6 days after gene transfer, thrombosis was induced by the production of constant stenosis of the artery, and blood flow was measured continuously with an electromagnetic flow probe. A cyclic flow variation, which is thought to reflect the recurrent formation and dislodgment of mural thrombi, was observed in all AdCALacZ-infected arteries as well as in saline-infused arteries. In contrast, no cyclic flow variation was detectable in AdCATFPI-transfected arteries, even in the presence of epinephrine (1 microg. kg-1. min-1 infusion). Prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time, and the ex vivo platelet aggregation induced by either adenosine diphosphate or collagen were unaltered in AdCATFPI-infected rabbits. We found that in vivo TFPI gene transfer into an injured artery completely inhibits the recurrent thrombosis induced by shear stress even in the presence of catecholamine, without affecting systemic coagulation status. Adenovirus-mediated local expression of TFPI may have the potential for the treatment of human thrombosis.  (+info)

Antithrombotic efficacy of a novel murine antihuman factor IX antibody in rats. (6/733)

A murine antihuman factor IX monoclonal antibody (BC2) has been generated and evaluated for its capacity to prolong the activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) in vitro and ex vivo and to prevent arterial thrombosis in a rat model in vivo. BC2 extended aPTT to a maximum of 60 to 80 seconds at 100 to 1000 nmol/L in vitro (rat and human plasma, respectively) and ex vivo (rat) after dosing of rats up to 6 mg/kg in vivo. BC2, administered as bolus (1 to 6 mg/kg) followed by infusion (0.3 to 2 mg x kg(-1) x h(-1)), dose-dependently prevented thrombosis of an injured rat carotid artery (FeCl(3)-patch model), increased time to artery occlusion, and reduced incidence of vessel occlusion. BC2 efficacy in preventing arterial thrombosis exceeded that of heparin (bolus 15 to 120 U/kg followed by infusion 0.5 to 4.0 U x kg(-1) x min(-1)), whereas the latter rendered the blood incoagulable (aPTT>1000 seconds). BC2 demonstrated complete antithrombotic efficacy also as a single bolus given either as prevessel or postvessel injury as evidenced by reduction of thrombus mass (from 4.18+/-0.49 to 1.80 +/-0.3 mg, P<0.001), increasing vessel patency time (from 14.9+/-0.9 minutes to 58.3+/-1.7 minutes, P<0.001) and decreasing incidence of vessel occlusion from 100% to 0% in vehicle- versus BC2-treated rats, respectively. BC2 (3 mg/kg, IV) administered in a single bolus resulted in 50% reduction in thrombus mass (P<0.01), extended vessel patency time (P<0.001), extended aPTT only 4-fold, and had no effect on blood loss via a tail surgical wound; heparin, at doses that reduced thrombus mass to a similar extent, extended aPTT beyond 1000 seconds (over 500-fold) and increased blood loss from 1.8+/-0.7 to 3.3 +/-0.6 mL (P<0.001). These data suggest that BC2 may provide enhanced therapeutic efficacy in humans at lesser interference with blood hemostasis than heparin.  (+info)

An IgG antiprothrombin antibody enhances prothrombin binding to damaged endothelial cells and shortens plasma coagulation times. (7/733)

OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that some lupus anticoagulants are antiprothrombin antibodies, and that such antibodies enhance prothrombin binding to endothelial cells (EC) and thus promote clotting on the cell surface. METHODS: We generated a monoclonal antiprothrombin antibody (designated IS6) from a patient with primary antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). The antibody was analyzed for its binding properties, lupus anticoagulant activity, and pathophysiologic activity, using an EC-based plasma coagulation assay. RESULTS: IS6 is the first patient-derived monoclonal IgG antiprothrombin antibody. It bound to prothrombin with low affinity, reacted with 3 phospholipids (cardiolipin, phosphatidylethanolamine, and phosphatidylserine), and showed lupus anticoagulant activity. Moreover, IS6 enhanced the binding of prothrombin to damaged EC and shortened the EC-based plasma coagulation times. CONCLUSION: These findings suggest that IS6 may promote coagulation in areas of damaged EC in the host, and thus contribute to thrombosis in patients with APS.  (+info)

Effect of maternal anticonvulsant treatment on neonatal blood coagulation. (8/733)

AIMS: To investigate the impact of maternal anticonvulsant use on the ability of cord blood to coagulate. METHODS: Cord blood prothrombin times were measured, over 15 years in a consecutive series of 137 term babies born to women taking phenobarbitone, phenytoin, and/or carbamazepine while pregnant. The response to parenteral vitamin K was measured in 83 neonates. RESULTS: Only 14 of the 105 babies born to the mothers who had therapeutic anticonvulsant blood concentrations at birth had a prolonged prothrombin time (outside the 95% reference range). None had an overt bleeding tendency. The abnormality was corrected within 2 hours by 1 mg of parenteral vitamin K, but rapid intravenous prophylaxis produced complications in three infants. CONCLUSIONS: A policy of giving vitamin K throughout the last third of pregnancy to all women being treated with anticonvulsants, as recently recommended, is not justified by the available evidence. The belief that there is a distinct, early form of neonatal vitamin K deficiency that is different from, and more dangerous than, the classic form of the disease, is not supported by a review of the published evidence.  (+info)

A method for preparing a thromboplastin reagent from cultured human cells comprising the steps of washing the cells with isotonic aqueous salt solution, lysing the cells by hypotonic shock, and resuspending the cell lysate in a diluent compatible with a one-stage prothrombin time determination to reach a concentration of about 0.5 to 3.0 mg/mL thromboplastin, whereby the cell lysate thromboplastin suspension produces a clot in a one stage prothrombin time test in about 10 to 15 seconds, with a mean normal prothrombin time of about 11-13 seconds, when added to citrated normal plasma in a volume ratio of about 2:1, such thromboplastin reagent being stable for at least 8 hours at 37 C. and for at least 5 days at 4 C.

Get accurate and quick report of Prothrombin Time Test in ghaziabad at your nearest Metropolis lab or your home at affordable cost. A Prothrombin time test is a test used to detect and diagnose bleeding disorder or clotting disorder in the body.
Prothrombin time (PT) is the leading test for monitoring oral anticoagulation therapy (OAT). We sought to determine INR taking into account only active coagulation factors FII, FVII and FX without inhibition in patient plasmas and calibrator kits.. We measured PT using a combined thromboplastin reagent. The calculation was based on a new PT method, which measures active coagulation factors (F II, F VII, FX) and corrects the errors caused by inactive coagulation factors.. On this basis, an INR result with and without inhibition for individual patient samples was also calculated and applied to 200 plasma samples obtained from OAT patients. Conspicuous variation in inhibition between the four calibration kits was noted. The kinetics of this inhibition was closest to a noncompetitive pattern.. The need of correction for INRs of single patients increases with higher INRs. At the same level of patient INRs the coagulation inhibiton varies markedly.. It has been known that different thromboplastin ...

A prothrombin time test tells you how long it takes your blood to clot. Learn what it looks for, when you might need one, and what the results mean.
Mixing studies are tests performed on blood plasma used to distinguish factor deficiencies from factor inhibitors, such as lupus anticoagulant, or specific factor inhibitors, such as antibodies directed against factor VIII. Mixing studies take advantage of the fact that factor levels that are 50 percent of normal should give a normal Prothrombin time (PT) or Partial thromboplastin time (PTT) result. If the problem is a simple factor deficiency, mixing the patient plasma 1:1 with plasma that contains 100% of the normal factor level results in a level ≥50% in the mixture (say the patient has an activity of 0%; the average of 100% + 0% = 50%). The PT or PTT will be normal (the mixing study shows correction). Correction with mixing indicates factor deficiency; failure to correct indicates an inhibitor. Performing a thrombin time on the test plasma can provide useful additional information for the interpretation of mixing tests. Some inhibitors are time dependent. In other words, it takes time for ...

Covers prothrombin time and INR tests to measure how long it takes blood to clot. Explains why tests are done, how they differ, and how to prepare. Includes possible results and what they may mean. Looks at what may affect test results.
A prothrombin time (PT) test measures how long it takes for a clot to form in a blood sample. A clot is a thick lump of blood that the body produces to seal leaks, wounds, cuts, and scratches and prevent excessive bleeding.. The bloods ability to clot is a complex process involving platelets (also called thrombocytes) and proteins called clotting factors. Platelets are oval-shaped cells made in the bone marrow. Most clotting factors are made in the liver.. When a blood vessel breaks, platelets are first to the area to help seal the leak and temporarily stop or slow the bleeding. But for the clot to become strong and stable, the action of clotting factors is required.. The bodys clotting factors are numbered using the Roman numerals I through XII. They work together in a specialized sequence, almost like pieces of a puzzle. When the last piece is in place, the clot develops - but if even one piece is missing or defective, the clot cant form.. The PT test can be used to evaluate the action of ...

A portable device for performing coagulation tests on a patients blood. Blood is first drawn from a patient using a lancet. The blood is then supplied to a disposable cuvette placed within the testing device. The blood is drawn into multiple conduits within the cuvette. Each of the conduits contains a dried or lyophilized activation reagent that is rehydrated by the blood. The blood in each of the conduits is then reciprocally moved across a restricted region until a predetermined degree of coagulation occurs. Since the coagulation time is being monitored in multiple conduits, a representation coagulation time for a given sample can be determined. In at least one of the conduits a normalizing control agent is present. The normalizing control agent counteracts any effects of anticoagulants present in the blood sample, thereby allowing the blood sample to have generally normal coagulation characteristics. The normalized blood is tested simultaneously with the untreated blood to provide a reference value

Abstract A study of the prothrombin time of patients bitten by Bothrops snakes, principally Bothrops atrox, the fer-de-lance, was undertaken for possible use as a guide to the severity of envenomation and the effectiveness of antivenin medication. Twenty-six cases of snake-bite poisoning, in which prothrombin-time determinations (Quick) were made every 8 hours, were studied. The patients represented two groups: 1) 20 who had been bitten by a snake 8 to 10 hours before admission, some of whom had already received one or two ampules of antivenin, and 2) six patients seen within 3 hours of the bite. The patients received antivenin every 6 to 8 hours. In the first group, the prothrombin time was 5% of normal on admission and reached a peak of 80% at about 40 hours. In the second group, the prothrombin time was 20% of normal on admission, dropped within 8 hours to less than 5% despite intensive antivenin therapy, and then followed the pattern of the larger group. Clinical improvement paralleled the return of

One of the most widely performed laboratory tests is the prothrombin time (PT) test. This test evaluates the functioning of the coagulation system and is also used to monitor patient oral anticoagulant therapy, such as warfarin. Traditionally, the prothrombin time test has been reported out in seconds. However, due to variance in results from incomparable and inconsistent laboratory reporting methods and analyzers, there has been a push to report the International Normalized Ratio (INR) as the gold standard for PT testing. A key component of the INR calculation is the International Sensitivity Index (ISI). The purpose of this module is to provide a general overview of PT and INR calculation, reporting, and point-of-care implementation for laboratory and other medical personnel involved in patient testing.. This course has been approved for P.A.C.E.® credit. ATTENTION MLE- AND ACP-AFFILIATED LABS: When you make your purchase, follow the instructions to use a coupon code to receive your ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The unwarranted use of replicate analysis in routine coagulation studies. AU - Sage-El, A.. AU - Burns, E.. AU - Wenz, B.. PY - 1985/1/1. Y1 - 1985/1/1. N2 - The need to assure the validity of semiautomated coagulation procedures by performing replicate determinations is assessed. Prothrombin times (PT) and activated partial thromboplastin times (aPTT) were run as duplicate assays using two different photo-optical detection systems. Sixty specimens with a broad range of PT and aPTT results were studied as aliquots of 80, 100, and 140 μL of plasma. A total of 1,440 studies were performed. No statistically significant differences were found among the data for complementary groups of assays. It is concluded that replicate analyses do not enhance the precision nor the accuracy of these coagulation studies. These factors are more controlled adequately by quality assurance procedures, including frequent calibration checks, the use of internal standards, and multilevel commercial ...

The activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) assay is a very common coagulation test, used for several reasons. The test is conventionally used for assessing the contact factor (intrinsic) pathway of blood coagulation, and thus for screening deficiencies in this pathway, most typically factors VIII, IX, and XI. The APTT is also sensitive to contact factor deficiencies, including factor XII, prekallikrein, and high-molecular-weight kininogen. The APTT may also be elevated in a variety of conditions, including liver disease, vitamin K deficiency, and disseminated intravascular coagulation. The APTT can also be used for monitoring unfractionated heparin (UFH) therapy, as well as for screening lupus anticoagulant (LA) or for assessing thrombosis risk. Which of these separate uses is important to a given laboratory or clinician depends on the laboratory and the clinical context. For example, UFH sensitivity is important in hospital-based laboratories, where UFH therapy is used, but not in ...

Background: The concept of developmental hemostasis has been universally accepted. Physiological reference ranges for coagulation tests are available for infants and children of different ages. However, on Oriental children they are rare.. Methods: Results of preoperative activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) in neonates, infants, children aged 1-18 years and adults with minor elective surgery in a university affiliated hospital were reviewed retrospectively. Plasma activity of factors VIII, IX, XI, XII (FVIII: C, FIX: C, FXI: C, FXII: C) and lupus anticoagulants (LAC) in 47 children with prolonged APTT and 34 adult controls were measured to investigate the causes of prolongation.. Results: Compared with adults, APTT values were prolonged significantly and were age-dependent in children, especially in neonates and infants aged 1-6 months. Mean values for FXII: C and FIX: C in children with prolonged APTT values were significantly lower than those in adults ( ...

Activated partial thromboplastin times (APTT) for monitoring heparin therapy for venous thromboembolism tended to be inappropriately short if blood was collected in commercially available evacuated glass tubes. Five types of evacuated tubes marketed under the trade names Vacutainer and Venoject were examined. The APTT of heparinized blood collected in these tubes correlated poorly (r = 0.04 to 4 = 0.25) with that of blood samples from the same patients collected in plastic tubes. Most of the evacuated tube APTT were shorter than that of blood collected in plastic or siliconised glass tubes, but the results were unpredictable and varied from tube to tube and from batch to batch. This effect on heparin is apparently due to an unidentified substances which is eluted from the rubber stoppers of the tubes. Heparin control according to the APTT blood collected in these evacuated tubes is hazardous.. ...

N2 - A staphylocoagulase-binding region in human prothrombin was studied by utilizing several fragments prepared from prothrombin by limited proteolysis. Bovine prothrombin, prethrombin 1, prethrombin 2, and human diisopropylphosphorylated α-thrombin strongly inhibited formation of the complex (staphylothrombin) between human prothrombin and staphylocoagulase, but bovine prothrombin fragment 1 and fragment 2 had no effect on the complex formation, indicating that the binding region of human prothrombin for staphylocoagulase is located in the prethrombin 2 molecule. To identify further the staphylocoagulase-binding region, human α-thrombin was cleaved into the NH2-terminal large fragment (Mr = 26, 000) and the COOH-terminal fragment (Mr = 16,000) by porcine pancreatic elastase.

Our data indicate that standardization for control of warfarin anticoagulant therapy may be less secure than anticipated. Individuals with similar INR values have very different TF threshold responses to coagulation. Even a single individual studied over the course of anticoagulant therapy is highly variable. The data show the wide range of anticoagulation that can be achieved without clinical complications, suggesting that bleeding risks still present are due to preexisting vascular anomalies.. The TF concentration chosen to evaluate the PT was selected to produce a CT of 11 to 15 seconds.21 The high concentration of thromboplastin reagent used was chosen to avoid competition from the contact activation pathway. However, the in vitro concentrations of thromboplastin reagents used in these assays are massive compared with the concentrations likely encountered during pathological vascular challenge. It should be recalled that PT is also not influenced by platelets or blood cells, FVIII, FIX, and ...

You may need this test if you have problems with bleeding or your blood does not clot properly. When you bleed, a series of actions involving many different proteins (clotting factors) take place in the body that help the blood clot. This is called the coagulation cascade. The PTT test looks at some of the proteins or factors involved in this process and measures their ability to help blood clot.. The test may also be used to monitor patients who are taking heparin, a blood thinner.. A PTT test is usually done with other tests, such as the prothrombin test. ...
