Plasminogen activators provide effective treatment for patients with acute myocardial infarction. However, paradoxical elevation of thrombin activity associated with failure of clot lysis and recurrent thrombosis has been reported. Generation of thrombin in these circumstances appears to be owing to plasmin (Plm)-induced activation of factor (F) XII. Plm(More)
We have utilized high-dose factor VIII (FVIII) concentrates in 4 hemophilia A patients with inhibitors prior to surgery for the insertion of a central venous access device. In total, 3 patients out of 4 had high responding inhibitors. Dosing algorithms for this type of therapy have not been previously validated and established. We devised an effective(More)
Extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins, such as collagen and fibronectin, play vital roles in development and maintenance of hard tissue (bone or tooth) and are, consequently, thoroughly investigated for construction of biomimetic scaffolds in combination with calcium phosphate (CaP) material (the major component of hard tissue) for bone or dental tissue(More)
INTRODUCTIONS The profiles of coagulation factor production during liver regeneration process remains to be fully elucidated. The present study was aimed to perform a comprehensive analysis whether hepatic gene expression was differentially regulated relative to the secretion of biologically active coagulation factors using a mouse model of liver(More)
Factor V (FV) appears to be pivotal in both procoagulant and anticoagulant mechanisms. A novel homozygote (FVNara), a novel mechanism of thrombosis associated with Trp1920→Arg (W1920R), was found in a Japanese boy and was associated with serious deep vein thrombosis despite a low level of plasma FV activity (10 IU/dL). Activated partial thromboplastin(More)
BACKGROUND Systemic coagulation disorders after cardiac surgery represent serious postoperative complications. There have been few reports, however, identifying preoperative coagulation tests that predict postoperative bleeding. The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between postoperative hemorrhage and coagulation parameters(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to develop a new intelligent drug delivery system for intracoronary thrombolysis with a strong thrombolytic effect without increasing bleeding risk. BACKGROUND Rapid recanalization of an occluded coronary artery is essential for better outcomes in acute myocardial infarction. Catheter-based recanalization is widely(More)
Acquired haemophilia A (AHA) is caused by the development of factor (F)VIII autoantibodies, demonstrating type 1 or type 2 inhibitory behaviour, and results in more serious haemorrhagic symptoms than in congenital severe HA. The reason(s) for this remains unknown, however. The global coagulation assays, thrombin generation tests and clot waveform analysis,(More)
Factor VIIIa functions as a cofactor for factor IXa in the phospholipid surface-dependent activation of factor X. Both the C2 domain of factor VIIIa and the Gla domain of factor IXa are involved in phospholipid binding and are required for the activation of factor X. In this study, we have examined the close relationship between these domains in the factor(More)
Factor (F)VIII functions as a cofactor in the tenase complex responsible for phospholipid (PL)-dependent FXa generation by FIXa. We have recently reported that the FVIIIa C2 domain (residues 2228-2240) interacts with the FIXa Gla domain in this complex. We examined the role of this interaction in the generation of tenase activity during the process of clot(More)
