Patch generation is an essential software maintenance task because most software systems inevitably have bugs that need to be fixed. Unfortunately, human resources are often insufficient to fix all reported and known bugs. To address this issue, several automated patch generation techniques have been proposed. In particular, a genetic-programming-based(More)
ABO blood groups are known to influence the plasma level of von Willebrand factor (VWF), but little is known about the relationship between ABO and coagulation factor VIII (FVIII). We analyzed the influence of ABO genotypes on VWF antigen, FVIII activity, and their quantitative relationship in 11,673 participants in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities(More)
Anoctamin 6 (ANO6) is a member of the recently identified TMEM16/anoctamin protein family comprising Ca2+-activated Cl− channels that generate outward-rectifying ionic currents in response to intracellular Ca2+ increase. ANO6 is also essential for Ca2+-dependent phospholipid scrambling required for blood coagulation. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors(More)
BACKGROUND An early diagnosis of disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) before its progression to an overt stage is necessary for early treatment and positive outcomes. In 2001, the Scientific and Standardization Committee (SCC) of the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ISTH) proposed new criteria for the preclinical diagnosis of(More)
VWF is extensively glycosylated with biantennary core fucosylated glycans. Most N-linked and O-linked glycans on VWF are sialylated. FVIII is also glycosylated, with a glycan structure similar to that of VWF. ST3GAL sialyltransferases catalyze the transfer of sialic acids in the α2,3 linkage to termini of N- and O-glycans. This sialic acid modification is(More)
Dear Editor, Gaucher disease (GD) is the most common lysosomal storage disease, characterized by glucosylceramide accumulation in macrophages owing to inherited glucocerebrosidase deficiency caused by GBA1 mutation [1]. Clinical manifestations include thrombocytopenia, hepatosplenomegaly, bone pain, osteopenia, dyspnea, and seizure, depending on the organ(More)
The coexistence of CCND1/IGH and MYC rearrangements in mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is a rare finding associated with a very poor prognosis. In this study, a patient with blastoid variant (MCL) is reported. The disease was clinically aggressive and refractory to chemotherapy, and the patient only survived for 1 month following diagnosis. Conventional(More)
BACKGROUND In sepsis, large scale inflammatory responses can cause extensive collateral damage to the vasculature, because both coagulation and fibrinolysis are activated unevenly. Thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI) plays a role in modulating fibrinolysis. Since TAFI can be activated by both thrombin and plasmin, it is thought to be affected(More)
