Activation of the extrinsic coagulation system and the fibrinolytic cascade within a tumour is thought to be related with growth, invasion and metastasis. We have investigated the relationship between these markers of fibrin metabolism, standard clinicopathological variables and serum levels of… (More)

BM 13.177, a sulphonamide derivative, prevented platelet aggregation by thromboxane A2 in vitro and selectively inhibited contraction of isolated rabbit femoral arteries induced by two stable endoperoxide analogues. In a double-blind placebo-controlled study, oral BM 13.177 inhibited platelet aggregation induced by arachidonic acid, low dose collagen, and… (More)

We examined whether affective variability can predict non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) in eating disorders. Affect was represented by valence (positive versus negative) and activation (high versus low). Twenty-one patients with anorexia nervosa-restricting type, 18 patients with anorexia nervosa-binge-purging type and 20 patients with bulimia nervosa… (More)
