The article describes critical investigations concerning the threshold value between endogenous and exogenous concentrations of gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB/"liquid ecstasy") in human blood. The values of GHB in the blood samples of 50 blood donors and 50 postmortem cases were measured with a validated gas-chromatographic/mass-spectrometric procedure(More)
BACKGROUND Factor VII activating protease (FSAP) is a circulating serine protease strongly expressed in unstable plaques and may serve as a marker of plaque destabilization. The aim of this study was to examine the relation between plasma concentrations of FSAP and clinical instability and outcome in coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
OBJECTIVES Factor seven activating protease (FSAP) is a plasma serine protease known to play a critical role in hemostasis and remodeling processes: FSAP levels increase markedly during normal pregnancy. In order to define the role of FSAP in vascular pathophysiology in pregnant women and particularly in the placenta, we performed this study (i) to evaluate(More)
Factor VII Activating Protease (FSAP) activates factor VII (FVII) as well as pro-urokinase (uPA). Our goal was to evaluate the relation between plasma levels of FSAP and clinical instability in atrial fibrillation (AF) and possible effects of oral omega-3 fatty acids (FA) supplements. 101 patients with persistent AF were analyzed in the OMEGA-AF Study.(More)
