BACKGROUND: High residual platelet reactivity (HRPR) during dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) may impact clinical outcomes following percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). However, whether any biomarkers assessed before PCI at DAPT loading may predict delayed maintenance HRPR is not clear. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine whether conventional clinical or laboratory indices at loading before stenting may predict HRPR at 6 months of maintenance DAPT...

BACKGROUND: The number of implanted ventricular assist devices (VADs) has increased significantly recently. Bleeding, the most frequent complication, cannot be solely attributed to anticoagulation therapy. Acquired von Willebrand syndrome (AVWS) caused by increased shear stress is frequent in VAD patients and can increase the bleeding risk. The HeartMate III (HM III) is a novel left VAD featuring potential improvements over the HeartMate II. METHODS AND RESULTS: In this study, we investigated the prevalence and onset of AVWS in 198 VAD patients...

Previously, we identified LDL-receptor related protein-1 on macrophages to mediate shear stress-dependent clearance of von Willebrand factor. In control experiments, however, we observed that von Willebrand factor also binds to macrophages independently of this receptor under static conditions, suggesting the existence of additional clearance-receptors. In search for such receptors, we focused on the macrophage-specific scavenger-receptor SR-AI. Von Willebrand factor displays efficient binding to SR-AI (half-max binding 14+/-5 nM)...

Acupuncture at Shuigou (GV26) shows good clinical efficacy for treating stroke, but its mechanism remains poorly understood. In this study, a cerebral infarction model of ischemia/reperfusion injury received electroacupuncture at GV26 (15 Hz and 1 mA, continuous wave [biphasic pulses], for 5 minutes). Electroacupuncture effectively promoted regional cerebral blood flow on the infarct and non-infarct sides, increased infarct lesions, lectin, and number of blood vessels, upregulated von Willebrand factor and cell proliferation marker Ki67 expression, and diminished neurological severity score...

Thymic epithelial tumors are rare malignancies, and no optimal therapeutic regimen has been defined for patients with advanced disease. Patients with advanced thymic epithelial tumors, which were resistant or intolerable to prior therapies, were eligible for this study. Patients received 9 mer-WT1-derived peptide emulsified with Montanide ISA51 adjuvant via intradermal administration once a week as a monotherapy. After the 3 month-protocol treatment, the treatment was continued mostly at intervals of 2 to 4 weeks until disease progression or intolerable adverse events occurred...

Acquired von Willebrand syndrome (AVWS) is a bleeding disorder caused by an acquired deficiency of von Willebrand factor (vWF). Some patients with AVWS show a low bleeding tendency and are diagnosed by the presence of a mild prolongation of activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) preoperatively. Another cause of APTT prolongation is the presence of antiphospholipid antibody (aPL). We experienced a case of AVWS due to aortic valve stenosis in a patient with aPL in whom aortic valve replacement surgery was successful with vWF replacement...

BACKGROUND: Recombinant von Willebrand factor (rVWF), which was licensed in the United States in 2015, has the multimeric distribution of freshly secreted VWF with ultralarge (UL) and high molecular weight multimers (HMWM) from endothelial cells and megakaryocytes since it has never been exposed to ADAMTS13 or any other proteolytic enzyme. Measurement of closure time (CT) using the platelet function analyzer-200 (PFA-200) is highly sensitive to the presence of UL VWF multimers in added VWF concentrates...

INTRODUCTION: Abnormal coagulation tests have been observed in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism (HPT) suggesting a prothrombotic effect of parathyroid hormone (PTH). Vitamin D deficiency (VIDD) is the most frequent cause of secondary HPT. Aim of our study was to investigate the influence of HPT secondary to moderate-severe VIDD and vitamin D replacement on the coagulation and fibrinolysis system. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Prospective cohort study of patients with vitamin D<25 nmol/l with and without HPT, and a control group of patients on vitamin D suppletion...

BACKGROUND: Remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) administered by non-lethal periods of extremity ischemia and reperfusion attenuates ischemia-reperfusion injury. We aimed to investigate the local and systemic coagulation marker response to flap ischemia-reperfusion injury, and the effects of RIC on coagulation markers following flap ischemia-reperfusion injury. METHODS: A musculocutaneous latissimus dorsi flap was subjected to 4 h of ischemia followed by 7 h of reperfusion in 16 female Danish Landrace pigs (39 kg)...

Recent advances in the care of von Willebrand 's disease (vWD) have allowed the majority of patients to be managed adequately. Even in the more severe forms, it is now possible to control recurrent bleeding through secondary long-term prophylaxis with von Willebrand factor-containing concentrates. Moreover, in the setting of surgical prophylaxis, the combination of interdisciplinary management and close patient monitoring yields a positive outcome in nearly all cases, although safety concerns remain. In clinical practice, the effectiveness of therapy is hindered by the difficulties in making a rapid, yet accurate diagnosis, in identifying the subgroup of bleeders who may benefit most from a specific strategy, and in selecting the optimal product and regimen...

Canine hemangiosarcoma (HSA) is one of the most common mesenchymal tumors in dogs. Its high metastatic and growth rates are usually associated with poor prognosis. Neoplastic cells of HSA can show various levels of cellular atypia in the same mass and may consist of various populations at different differentiated stages. Up to present, however, there is no report analyzing their differentiation states by comparing cellular atypia with differentiation-related protein expressions. To evaluate whether cellular atypia can be used as a differentiation marker in HSA, we analyzed correlation between cellular atypia and intensities of CD31 and von Willebrand Factor (vWF) staining in HSA cases...

Marilins mediate interactions between macromolecular components of the extracellular matrix, e.g., collagens and proteoglycans. They are composed of von Willebrand factor type A and epidermal growth factor-like domains and the subunits oligomerize via coiled-coil domains. Matrilin-1 and -3 are abundant in hyaline cartilage, whereas matrilin-2 and -4 are widespread but less abundant. Mutations in matrilin genes have been linked to chondrodysplasias and osteoarthritis and recently characterization of matrilin-deficient mice revealed novel functions in mechanotransduction, regeneration, or inflammation...

Desmopressin increases endogenous factor VIII levels in hemophilia A. Large inter-individual variation in the response to desmopressin is observed. Patients with a lower baseline factor VIII activity tend to show a reduced response. Therefore, desmopressin is less frequently used in moderate hemophilia A patients (baseline factor VIII activity 1-5 international units/deciliter), even though factor VIII levels may rise substantially in some of them. We aim to describe the response to desmopressin in moderate hemophilia A patients and to identify predictors...

Inhibition of von Willebrand factor (VWF) expression in endothelial cells results in enhanced, possible dysfunctional angiogenesis, consistent with observations of severe gastrointestinal bleedings caused by vascular malformations in patients with von Willebrand disease (VWD). VWF is stored in endothelial Weibel-Palade bodies (WPB) with several other mediators of angiogenesis, like angiopoietin-2, osteoprotegerin and galectin-3. Increased release of angiopoietin-2 has been observed in medium of endothelial cells lacking VWF, but data on circulating levels of angiogenic factors in patients with VWD are lacking...
