ADAMTS13, endothelial von Willebrand factor (VWF) and related proteins are involved in the pathogenesis of some life threatening systemic thrombotic coagulopathies. Changes of plasma ADAMTS13 activity in thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) is well known but is also involved in septic disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC). Here we investigated(More)
A second questionnaire survey of Japanese patients with thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) was carried out to investigate the frequency, laboratory abnormalities and outcome in 2004 and 2005. The first and second surveys evaluated 397 patients including 19 with familial TMA and 378 with acquired TMA. The patients with acquired TMA included 165 with(More)
Thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) is associated with vascular endothelial cell injury and is sometimes linked with poor outcome. Von Willebrand factor (VWF) propeptide (VWFpp) is considered to be a marker of vascular endothelial cell injury. The plasma levels of VWF, VWFpp, and thrombomodulin (TM) were evaluated for their use in the diagnosis of TMA in 75(More)
