Vascular endothelial cells (ECs) link hemostasis, thrombosis, and complement. ECs synthesize both the clotting initiator von Willebrand factor (VWF) and the complement regulator factor H (FH). VWF is stored in EC Weibel-Palade bodies (WPBs), but the intracellular location of FH is not well defined. We found that FH colocalizes with VWF in WPBs of human(More)
Many patients with haemophilia develop inhibitors to factor VIII and require bypassing agents to provide haemostatic cover for limb- or life-threatening bleeding episodes. Due to the reduced risk of blood-borne pathogen transmission with recombinant products, on-demand recombinant factor VIIa (rFVIIa; NovoSeven is the treatment of choice for children with(More)
Acquired hemophilia is a rare bleeding disorder characterized by the spontaneous occurrence of inhibitory antibodies against endogenous factor VIII (FVIII). IgG from some patients with acquired hemophilia hydrolyze FVIII. Because of the complex etiology of the disease, no clinical parameter, including the presence of FVIII-hydrolyzing IgG, has been(More)
Acquired hemophilia is a rare hemorrhagic disorder caused by the spontaneous appearance of inhibitory autoantibodies directed against endogenous coagulation factor VIII (FVIII). Inhibitory Abs also arise in patients with congenital hemophilia A as alloantibodies directed to therapeutic FVIII. Both autoimmune and alloimmune inhibitors neutralize FVIII by(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the maternal, fetal and neonatal safety of enoxaparin in pregnant women who require antithrombotic therapy. DESIGN Retrospective analysis of case notes of women who received enoxaparin during pregnancy, irrespective of dose, duration and reason for treatment. SETTING Fifty-five French perinatal centres. SAMPLE Data from 624(More)
Recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) has recently been introduced for improving haemostasis in haemophiliac patients developing alloantibodies (inhibitors) to factor VIII (FVIII) or factor IX (FIX). We describe the successful management of haemorrhagia with rFVIIa in five different situations: an episode of surgical bleeding in a patient with(More)
Acquired von Willebrand disease associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) has been detected in three middle-aged women. In each case the first clinical manifestation was a bleeding syndrome. Plasma levels of von Willebrand factor (VWF) and ristocetin-induced platelet agglutination were as found in type 1 von Willebrand disease for the first(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES A plasma-derived von Willebrand factor (VWF) concentrate with low factor VIII (FVIII) content was specifically developed to treat von Willebrand disease (VWD). Efficacy and safety were investigated by merging the results of two comparable protocols conducted prospectively in 5 European and 12 French centers. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
Inhibitor development is the major treatment complication in children with severe hemophilia A. It is not clear whether the risk of inhibitors is higher with recombinant factor VIII or with plasma-derived factor VIII. We used multivariate analysis to compare 2 cohorts of previously untreated patients (PUPs) with severe hemophilia A: 62 patients treated with(More)
Von Willebrand factor (VWF) is a chaperone molecule for procoagulant factor VIII (FVIII). Its role in the reduction of the immunogenicity of therapeutic FVIII in patients with hemophilia A has been evoked but lacks clear cellular and molecular rationale. Here, we demonstrate that VWF protects FVIII from being endocytosed by human dendritic cells (DCs) and(More)
