Reduced Activity of Protein S in Plasma: A Risk Factor for Venous Thromboembolism in the Japanese Population.

Clin Appl Thromb Hemost 2021 Jan-Dec;27:10760296211033908

Department of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine, Kyushu University School of Medicine, Fukuoka, Japan.

The quantitative assay of protein S can help in rapidly identifying carriers of abnormal protein S molecules through a simple procedure (by determining the total protein S mass, total protein S activity, and protein S-specific activity in blood), without genetic testing. To clarify the relationship between venous thromboembolism (VTE) and protein S-specific activity, and its role in the diagnosis of thrombosis in Japanese persons, the protein S-specific activity was measured and compared between patients with thrombosis and healthy individuals. The protein S-specific activity of each participant was calculated from the ratio of total protein S activity to total protein S antigen level. Read More

Lead thrombus under standard-dose edoxaban in a patient with normal to high creatinine clearance and protein S deficiency.

Thromb J 2021 Jul 17;19(1):50. Epub 2021 Jul 17.

Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Cardiology, Kaohsiung Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Chang Gung University College of Medicine, 123, Ta Pei Road, Niao Sung District, Kaohsiung City, 83301, Taiwan.

Background: Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) are as effective and safe as warfarin for thromboembolic prevention and treatment. The efficacy of NOACs lacks evidence from large and randomized studies in patients with inherited severe thrombophilia, including protein S deficiency. Further, some concerns still exist regarding the relative efficacy of edoxaban in preventing arterial thromboembolism in patients with normal to high creatinine clearance (CrCl). Read More

Clinical guidance for peripartum management of patients with hereditary thrombophilia.

J Obstet Gynaecol Res 2021 Jun 24. Epub 2021 Jun 24.

The Study Group for Hereditary Thrombophilia, Research on Blood Coagulation Abnormalities, Research Program on Rare and Intractable Diseases, The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare Science Research Grants, Tokyo, Japan.

Hereditary thrombophilia is a condition in which individuals are susceptible to the formation of thrombi due to a hereditary deficiency in anticoagulant factors, antithrombin (AT), protein C (PC), or protein S (PS). Many Japanese thrombophilia patients have PS deficiency, especially PS p.K196E (also called as PS Tokushima), which is exclusive to the Japanese population, and thrombosis sometimes occurs during pregnancy.

A study of hyperhomocysteinemia in cerebral venous sinus thrombosis.

Indian J Med Res 2020 Dec;152(6):584-594

Department of Neurology, Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Background & Objectives: Vegetarianism may result in low vitamin B12 and acquired hyperhomocysteinemia leading to thrombotic conditions such as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST). The clinico-radiological presentation and outcome of patients with hyperhomocysteinemia may be different from those without, but there is a paucity of information. This study was undertaken to find out the relationship of homocysteine (Hcy) with vitamin B12, folic acid and methyltetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) mutation in the patients with CVST, and compare clinico-radiological severity and outcome of patients with and without hyperhomocysteinemia.

Department of Medicine I, Klinikum Heidenheim, Heidenheim, Germany.

The management of pregnant women at increased risk of thromboembolic/other vascular events is still a matter of debate. In a single-center, retrospective, observational trial, we analyzed the safety and efficacy of prophylactic anticoagulation with certoparin in pregnant women at intermediate- or high-risk by EThIG criteria of thromboembolic/other vascular events. Subcutaneous certoparin 8,000 IU once daily was administered immediately after pregnancy confirmation and continued for 6 weeks postpartum. Read More

Evaluation of Optimal Sample Processing Conditions for Accurate Measurement of Protein S Activity.

Ann Clin Lab Sci 2021 Mar;51(2):206-212

Department of Clinical Laboratory Science, Division of Health Sciences, Graduate School of Medical Science, Kanazawa University

Objective: Protein S(PS) activity, especially PS-specific activity calculated by total PS activity (tPSAct) divided by total PS antigen (tPSAg), is important in the diagnosis of hereditary PS deficiency (PSD). The cleavage of PS at a thrombin-sensitive region (TSR) by proteases reduces the anticoagulant activity of PS. Therefore, we investigated the effect of sample processing and storage on tPSAct and PS cleavage. Read More

A Rare Thrombophilic Occurrence: Dural Venous Sinus Thrombosis in a Patient with Significant Family History of Protein S Deficiency.

Cureus 2021 Mar 13;13(3):e13866. Epub 2021 Mar 13.

Internal Medicine, St. Luke's University Health Network, Easton, USA.

Protein S is a potent anticoagulant that downregulates thrombin formation and is a vitamin K-dependent glycoprotein which is primarily synthesized in the liver. A deficiency in this protein or decreased activity, as seen in hereditary protein S deficiency, can lead to life-threatening thrombosis. Hereditary protein S deficiency is a rare disease as listed by the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD). Read More

Pleiotropic anticoagulant functions of protein S, consequences for the clinical laboratory. Communication from the SSC of the ISTH.

J Thromb Haemost 2021 01;19(1):281-286

Department of Pathology, University of New Mexico, TriCore Reference Laboratories, Albuquerque, NM, USA.

Hereditary deficiencies of protein S (PS) increase the risk of thrombosis. However, assessing the plasma levels of PS is complicated by its manifold physiological interactions, while the large inter-individual variability makes it problematic to establish reliable cut-off values. PS has multiple physiological functions, with only two appearing to have significant anticoagulant properties: the activated protein C (APC) and tissue factor pathway inhibitor alpha (TFPIα) cofactor activities.

Recommendations for clinical laboratory testing for protein S deficiency: Communication from the SSC committee plasma coagulation inhibitors of the ISTH.

J Thromb Haemost 2021 01;19(1):68-74

Department of Molecular and Cellular Hemostasis, Sanquin Research, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Hereditary deficiencies of protein S (PS) increase the risk of venous thrombosis; however, assessing the plasma levels of PS can be difficult because of its complex physiological interactions in plasma, sample-related preanalytical variables, and numerous acquired disease processes. Reliable laboratory assays are essential for accurate evaluation of PS when diagnosing a congenital deficiency based on the plasma phenotype alone. This report presents the current evidence-based recommendations for clinical PS assays as well as when to test for PS abnormalities. Read More
