In addition to assessment of von Willebrand factor (VWF) antigen (VWF:Ag), the first-line laboratory investigation of possible von Willebrand disease (VWD) often includes an assay to measure GPIb (glycoprotein Ib) binding activity of VWF. A decreased GPIb binding activity is characteristic for most of the VWD types. For many years, the most frequently used(More)
The functional activity of von Willebrand factor (VWF) is most frequently measured by using the ristocetin cofactor assay (VWF:RCo). However, the method's drawbacks include unsatisfactory precision, sensitivity and availability of automated system applications. We have developed an alternative assay (INNOVANCE VWF Ac) that is based on the binding of VWF to(More)
Vaccinia virus cores contain an activity which is able to relax both left-and right-handed superhelical DNA. This virus-specific nicking closing enzyme has been highly purified and differs from the corresponding host enzyme in salt optimum, in sedimentation coefficient, and in polypeptide composition as determined on sodium dodecyl sulfate/polyacrylamide(More)
The influence of blood collection methods on dopamine-receptor-blocking activities as determined by a radioreceptor assay kit was investigated. Thirty-one patients treated with one of six neuroleptic drugs (thioridazine, trifluoperazine, haloperidol, chlorpromazine, thiothixene, or fluphenazine) participated in this study. Blood samples were drawn from each(More)
von Willebrand disease (VWD) is reportedly the most common inherited bleeding disorder and can also arise as an acquired syndrome (AVWS). These disorders arise due to defects and/or deficiency of the plasma protein von Willebrand factor (VWF). Laboratory testing for the VWF-related disorders requires assessment of both VWF level and VWF activity, the latter(More)
