OBJECTIVES To investigate the role of endothelial cell mediators, E-selectin (ES), intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), tissue factor (TF), and von Willebrand factor (vWF), in the early phase of severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) complicated with respiratory failure [pancreatitis-associated lung injury (PALI)]. PATIENTS AND METHODS This study included(More)
The synthesis of a number of clotting factors takes place in a hepatocyte. Therefore, measurement of these factors in the blood have proved to be of additional value in the diagnosis and follow-up of liver diseases. In the present study we evaluated protein C level in the plasma of patients with liver cell damage due to chronic alcohol consumption. A(More)
The specific endothelial cell product von Willebrand factor antigen (vWf:Ag) was measured in plasma and lung function tests were carried out and the following lung injury parameters measured: P(a)O2/F(i)O2 ratio, static respiratory compliance and Murray's lung injury score (LIS) in a follow-up study of 36 severely traumatized patients. Injury severity score(More)
Malathion (MA) is a widely used insecticide in México. The snail Stagnicola sp is a native species of the Ignacio Ramírez dam (IRD). This work aimed to evaluate the bioavailability and toxicity of MA in sediments of the IRD from the Stagnicola sp snail, taking into account the physicochemical properties of the IRD sediment. The toxic effect of MA on the(More)
Protein Z (PZ) deficiency may induce bleeding as well as thrombosis. The aim of our study was to estimate the concentration of PZ in patients with acute leukemia. Plasma levels of PZ were determined in 76 patients with newly diagnosed acute leukemia ([AML], n = 50; acute lymphoblastic leukemia [ALL], n = 26) and 62 healthy participants. In the patients,(More)
Blood coagulation and fibrinolysis are activated systemically in patients with malignancy. The precarious balance between coagulation and fibrinolysis is modulated by serine proteinase inhibitors (serpins). Levels of selected serpins (alpha1-antichymotrypsin, alpha1-antitrypsin, alpha2-macroglobulin, antithrombin III, C1 inhibitor, alpha2-antiplasmin),(More)
The pathological consequences of decreased protein Z (PZ) and/or Z-dependent protease inhibitor (ZPI) levels remain as yet unclear, despite a growing body of evidence which supports their involvement in an increased thrombotic risk. The purpose of the present study was 2-fold: to evaluate plasma concentrations of protein Z and ZPI in patients with essential(More)
Prothrombin activation fragment 1 + 2 (F1 + 2) and thrombin-antithrombin-III complexes (TAT) were measured in plasma of 34 patients with newly diagnosed essential hypertension. The patients with hypertension showed an increase in both F1 + 2 and TAT concentrations. The obtained results point to the intravascular thrombin generation in very early stages of(More)
The aim of the following study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of selective hemostasis activation markers, prothrombin activation fragment 1 + 2 (F1 + 2), thrombin-antithrombin complex (TAT), plasmin-alpha 2-antiplasmin complex (PAP) and D-dimer in patients with acute deep venous thrombosis (DVT). The study was performed on 56 patients with freshly(More)
The aim of study was to evaluate TF activity and TFPI concentration in patients with haematological malignancies and urinary tract tumors. TFPI concentration and activity and TF concentration were measured in 20 patients suffering from acute myeloblastic leukaemia (AML), 21 patients with chronic myelogenous leukaemia (CML), 17 patients with chronic(More)
