Advancing multimer analysis of von Willebrand factor by single-molecule AFM imaging.

PLoS One 2019 15;14(1):e0210963. Epub 2019 Jan 15.

Department of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany.

The formation of hemostatic plugs at sites of vascular injury crucially involves the multimeric glycoprotein von Willebrand factor (VWF). VWF multimers are linear chains of N-terminally linked dimers. The latter are formed from monomers via formation of the C-terminal disulfide bonds Cys2771-Cys2773', Cys2773-Cys2771', and Cys2811-Cys2811'. Read More

Thromboinflammation: Challenges of Therapeutically Targeting Coagulation and other Host Defence Mechanisms.

Blood 2019 Jan 14. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Charles Perkins Centre, The University of Sydney, Camperdown, NSW, Australia.

Thrombosis with associated inflammation (thromboinflammation) occurs commonly in a broad range of human disorders. It is well recognized clinically in the context of superficial thrombophlebitis (thrombosis and inflammation of superficial veins), however it is more dangerous when it develops in the microvasculature of injured tissues and organs. Microvascular thrombosis with associated inflammation is well recognized in the context of sepsis and ischemia-reperfusion injury, however it also occurs in organ transplant rejection, major trauma, severe burns, the antiphospholipid syndrome, preeclampsia, sickle cell disease and biomaterial-induced thromboinflammation.

Gradient-dependent inhibition of stimulatory signaling from platelet G protein-coupled receptors.

Haematologica 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden.

As platelet activation is an irreversible and potentially harmful event, platelet stimulatory signaling must be tightly regulated to ensure the filtering-out of inconsequential fluctuations of agonist concentrations in the vascular milieu. Herein, we show that platelet activation via G protein-coupled receptors is gradient-dependent that is determined not only by agonist concentrations but also by how rapidly concentrations change over time. We demonstrate that gradient-dependent inhibition is a common feature of all major platelet stimulatory G protein-coupled receptors, while platelet activation via the non- G protein-coupled receptor glycoprotein VI is strictly concentration-dependent.

Sticky Platelet Syndrome: 35 Years of Growing Evidence.

Semin Thromb Hemost 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Department of Haematology and Transfusion Medicine, National Centre of Haemostasis and Thrombosis, Jessenius Faculty of Medicine in Martin, Comenius University in Bratislava, Martin University Hospital, Martin, Slovakia.

Since the identification of antithrombin deficiency by Egeberg in 1956, ongoing research in prothrombotic defects continues to progress. Interestingly, past research has predominantly focused on coagulation factors and not on other components of the hemostatic system. The possible role of platelet function defects in the development of thrombotic events was suggested for the first time in the late 1970s, when an increased platelet adhesiveness and aggregation after epinephrine (EPI) and adenosine diphosphate (ADP) was found in a group of patients with unexplained transient ischemic attack.

Novel Sickle Cell Disease Therapies: Targeting Pathways Downstream of Sickling.

Semin Hematol 2018 Apr 20;55(2):68-75. Epub 2018 Apr 20.

Department of Pediatrics, Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Children's Hospital at Montefiore, Bronx, NY. Electronic address:

Sickle cell disease is an inherited hemoglobinopathy characterized by hemolytic anemia, frequent painful episodes, poor quality of life, end organ damage and a shortened lifespan. Although the seminal event is the polymerization of the abnormal hemoglobin, the downstream pathophysiology of vaso-occlusion results from heterotypic interactions between the altered, adhesive sickle cell RBCs, neutrophils, endothelium, and platelets. Ischemia reperfusion injury, hemolysis and oxidant damage all contribute to heightened inflammation and activation of the hemostatic system. Read More

Platelet-like particles dynamically stiffen fibrin matrices and improve wound healing outcomes.

Biomater Sci 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, North Carolina State University and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Raleigh, NC 27695, USA. and Comparative Medicine Institute, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695, USA.

Native platelets perform several critical functions within the context of wound healing, including participating in initial hemostasis and interacting with fibrin at the wound site to induce clot retraction. Platelet depletion or dysfunction due to trauma or disease can inhibit robust wound healing responses. There has been a focus recently on developing synthetic, non-immunogenic platelet mimetic technologies for the purpose of augmenting hemostatic responses in cases of deficient native platelet functionality.

Elucidation of Endothelial Cell Hemostatic Regulation with Integrin-Targeting Hydrogels.

Ann Biomed Eng 2019 Jan 3. Epub 2019 Jan 3.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Texas, 107 W. Dean Keaton, BME 3.503D, 1 University Station, C0800, Austin, TX, 78712, USA.

Despite advances in the development of materials for cardiovascular devices, current strategies generally lack the thromboresistance of the native endothelium both in terms of efficacy and longevity. To harness this innate hemostatic regulation and improve long-term hemocompatibility, biohybrid devices are designed to promote endothelialization. Much of the research effort to date has focused on the use of extracellular matrix (ECM)-mimics and coatings to promote endothelial cell adhesion and migration with less attention given to the effect of the supported ECM binding events on hemostatic regulation.

The evaluation of hemostatic dysfunction and disseminated intravascular coagulation in dairy cows with abomasal displacement.

Pol J Vet Sci 2018 Dec;21(4):769-778

Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Selcuk University, 42003, Konya, Turkey.

Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a complex, dynamic and hemostatic disorder which develops secondarily to a disease characterized with an imbalance in the pro-coagulant and anti-coagulant components of hemostasis. The aim of the study is to evaluate hemostatic dysfunc- tion and the DIC syndrome in cattle with displaced abomasum (DA), with using the hematologic analyses and an extensive coagulation profile in the 96 hour-period including before and after surgery. The animal material of the study consisted of 12 dairy cows diagnosed with displaced abomasum (9 LDA and 3 RDA without volvulus) in the 2-4 week period after parturation and with no other post-partum disease.

Inhibitor development, safety and efficacy of Advate among previously treated patients with hemophilia A in a postmarketing surveillance in Japan.

Int J Hematol 2019 Jan 2. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Kitakyushu Yahata-Higashi Hospital, Kitakyusyu, Japan.

Rurioctocog alfa (recombinant factor VIII: Advate) is available for the control of bleeding in patients with hemophilia A in Japan. To evaluate the inhibitor development, safety, and efficacy of rurioctocog alfa, a non-interventional and observational postmarketing surveillance was conducted on 352 previously treated Japanese patients aged 1-76 years with ≥ 4 exposure days under the conditions of routine clinical practice. A post-hoc comparison of the mean annualized bleeding rates which required treatment with rurioctocog alfa detected a statistically significant difference (P < 0. Read More

Thromboelastography and Thromboelastometry in Assessment of Fibrinogen Deficiency and Prediction for Transfusion Requirement: A Descriptive Review.

Biomed Res Int 2018 25;2018:7020539. Epub 2018 Nov 25.

Royal Canadian Medical Services, Ottawa, Ontario, and McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Fibrinogen is crucial for the formation of blood clot and clinical outcomes in major bleeding. Both Thromboelastography (TEG) and Rotational Thromboelastometry (ROTEM) have been increasingly used to diagnose fibrinogen deficiency and guide fibrinogen transfusion in trauma and surgical bleeding patients. We conducted a comprehensive and comparative review on the technologies and clinical applications of two typical functional fibrinogen assays using TEG (FF TEG) and ROTEM (FIBTEM) for assessment of fibrinogen level and deficiency, and prediction of transfusion requirement.
