AIM We compared the level of plasma D-dimer in patients with previous venous thromboembolism (VTE), receiving or not oral anticoagulant treatment (OAT) and investigated its predictive value for the risk of VTE recurrence after OAT withdrawal. METHODS We have studied 149 patients, 81 receiving oral anticoagulants and 68 after treatment interruption.(More)
We have developed a method of detection HDV RNA where the reverse transcription and amplification are carried out in the same tube, thus reducing the handling time and the contamination risk. RNA extracted from serum or plasma on a microcolumn technique (kit QIAamp viral RNA, QIAgen) is submitted to reverse transcription and amplification by using the(More)
The negative predictive value of D-dimers in the diagnosis of a recent venous thromboembolism (VTE) episode is well established. The plasma level of D-dimer is usually increased in hypercoagulable states. The measurement of D-dimer could be of clinical interest in patients with constitutional thrombophilia as there is no close relationship between the(More)
The usefulness of D-dimers determination for the exclusion of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) has been extensively studied. The persistence of high levels of D-dimers has also been suggested as a marker of hypercoagulability in rare studies and might be used to identify patients at risk for recurrent DVT. We have studied the influence of oral anticoagulant(More)
From January 1999 to May 2000 (17 months), 21 strains of streptococci and four strains of enterococci have been isolated from 74 blood cultures in 25 infectious episodes in hematologic patients. They concerned 21 patients, of 21 to 77 years old. These patients suffered from acute leukaemia (14 cases), chronic lymphoid leukaemia (two cases), non-Hodgkin's(More)
