Type I Glanzmann's thrombasthenia is a rare congenital platelet function disorder, characterized by undetectable platelet membrane glycoprotein IIb-IIIa (GPIIb-IIIa). Severe bleeding is controlled by transfusion of normal platelets, leading in some cases to the occurrence of anti-GPIIb-IIIa isoantibodies, which induces a loss of transfused platelet(More)
We report the largest international study on Glanzmann thrombasthenia (GT), an inherited bleeding disorder where defects of the ITGA2B and ITGB3 genes cause quantitative or qualitative defects of the αIIbβ3 integrin, a key mediator of platelet aggregation. Sequencing of the coding regions and splice sites of both genes in members of 76 affected families(More)
Studying consanguineous families with Ghosal hematodiaphyseal dysplasia syndrome (GHDD), a disorder of increased bone density, we identified mutations in TBXAS1, which encodes thromboxane synthase (TXAS). TXAS, an enzyme of the arachidonic acid cascade, produces thromboxane A2 (TXA2). Platelets from subjects with GHDD showed a specific deficit in(More)
UNLABELLED Treatment of auto-immune cytopenia refractory to front line therapy with intravenous immunoglobulins and steroids is a matter of concern. We assessed the efficacy and safety of mycophenolate mofetil in a prospective open preliminary study. STUDY DESIGN Adult patients with steroid refractory auto-immune cytopenias were included. Mycophenolate(More)
An abnormal prothrombin has been detected in a 23 yr-old healthy female and her mother. Both patients appeared to be heterozygous for the abnormality, plasma prothrombin being 50% of normal using the usual one stage assay, but normal when measured either by using Echis carinatus venom or by immunoassay. No abnormality in the immunoelectrophoretic pattern(More)
Hematological disorders (HD) have been estimated to implicate approximately 1% of patients with arterial ischemic stroke. However, previously published studies are mostly retrospective or based on case reports or small series in selected young patients. We herein prospectively included consecutive patients with MRI-confirmed cerebral arterial infarctions(More)
The "so-called" pediatric tubes are often used when collecting smaller blood volume is necessary, particularly in pediatric patients or in case of difficult/recurrent sampling. The aim of this multicenter study was to compare coagulation test results evaluated in evacuated polymer tubes containing 0.109 M citrate (1 vol./9 vol.) specifically designed to(More)
