BACKGROUND Routinely available coagulation assays are not capable of detecting clinically defined hypercoagulable states. A number of global coagulation assays have been developed with the potential to evaluate hypercoagulability, which predisposes to the common clinical events of arterial and venous thromboembolism (VTE). OBJECTIVES We hypothesized that(More)
BACKGROUND A retrospective study of the clinical, epidemiologic, and virologic features of norovirus gastroenteritis in 12 adult allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients. METHODS Norovirus infection was diagnosed by reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction. Strains were genotyped by nucleic acid sequence of the most highly(More)
Laboratory-specific cut-off lupus ratios (LR), above which a plasma is judged positive for lupus anticoagulant (LA), were established for both activated partial thromboplastin time-based and dilute Russell viper venom time-based methods. The validity of using these cut-off values to determine the presence of LA in patients on oral anticoagulation (OAC) was(More)
