Antiplatelet agents are at risk for bleeding complications, the management of which differs depending on the clinical situation and on the antiplatelet agent itself. Neutralization of antiplatelets is sometimes necessary, most often leading to platelet transfusion, although the benefit of this strategy is poorly documented. In addition, if platelet transfusion corrects the platelet inhibition induced by aspirin and probably by clopidogrel and prasugrel, it does not neutralize ticagrelor, as a consequence of its pharmacological properties...

Imatinib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, is the drug of choice for the treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia in Nigeria. Several studies have established interindividual and interpopulation variations in imatinib disposition although no pharmacokinetic study have been conducted in an African population since the introduction of the drug. This study explored a population pharmacokinetic approach to investigate the disposition of imatinib in Nigerians and examined the involvement of some covariates including genetic factors in the variability of the drug disposition with a view to optimize the use of the drug in this population...

BACKGROUND: The bypassing agent factor VII (FVIIa) is a first-line therapy for the treatment of acute bleeding episodes in patients with haemophilia and high-titre inhibitors. FVIIa is a highly post-translationally modified protein that requires eukaryotic expression systems to produce a fully active molecule. A recombinant FVIIa was produced in the milk of transgenic rabbits to increase expression and provide an efficient, safe and affordable product after purification to homogeneity (LR769)...

BACKGROUND: In acute myeloid leukemias, there is an increased chance to develop thrombotic disorders. We hypothesized that in addition to leukemic promyelocytes, monocytic leukemia cells may also have a higher procoagulant activity. METHODS: Fibrin formation was assessed by a one-stage clotting assay using a magnetic coagulometer. The thrombin generation test (TGT) of magnetically isolated normal human monocytes, intact leukemic cells and their isolated microparticles was performed by a fluorimetric assay...

BACKGROUND: Group B streptococcus (GBS) capsular polysaccharide is one of the major virulence factors underlying invasive GBS disease and a component of forthcoming vaccines. Serotype classification of GBS is based on the capsule polysaccharide of which ten variants are known to exist (Ia, Ib, II-IX). Current methods for GBS serotype assignment rely on latex agglutination or PCR while more recently a whole genome sequencing method was reported. In this study, three distinct algorithms for serotype assignment from genomic data were assessed using a panel of 790 clinical isolates...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic liver disease causes a disruption of procoagulant and anticoagulant factors, resulting in a fragile state, prone to increased rates of both bleeding and thrombosis. Currently, there is limited literature describing the changes observed in pediatric liver disease and extrahepatic portal vein obstruction or shunt. This study aimed to describe the changes that occur in children with chronic liver disease and extrahepatic portal vein obstruction or shunt. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We measured the concentration and activity of key procoagulant and anticoagulant factors in children with liver disease, children with extrahepatic portal vein obstruction or shunt, and healthy children...

The ethylene response factor VII (ERF-VII) transcription factor has been reported to be involved in multiple different stress responses. In a previous study, we showed that ERF74 and ERF75 play a redundant role in the upregulation of RESPIRATORY BURST OXIDASE HOMOLOG D (RbohD) transcription and enhance the oxygen species (ROS) burst during early stages of the stress response. Induction of stress marker genes and ROS-scavenging enzymes under various stress conditions are dependent on this ROS burst. Here, we propose an assumption that ERF71-ERF75 have different functions and act synergistically in response to stresses in Arabidopsis...
