BACKGROUND Although dyslipoproteinemia is associated with arterial atherothrombosis, little is known about plasma lipoproteins in venous thrombosis patients. METHODS AND RESULTS We determined plasma lipoprotein subclass concentrations using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and antigenic levels of apolipoproteins AI and B in blood samples from 49(More)
Elevated plasma fibronectin levels occur in various clinical states including arterial disease. Increasing evidence suggests that atherothrombosis and venous thromboembolism (VTE) share common risk factors. To assess the hypothesis that high plasma fibronectin levels are associated with VTE, we compared plasma fibronectin levels in the Scripps Venous(More)
Heparin is widely used for anticoagulation, often requiring the subsequent administration of a reversal agent. The only approved reversal agent for heparin is protamine sulfate, which induces well described adverse reactions in patients. Previously we reported a novel class of heparin antagonists based on the bacteriophage Qβ platform, displaying polyvalent(More)
BACKGROUND Lp(a) is a proatherogenic lipoprotein that may also be prothrombotic. Apo(a) size isoforms have differential effects on fibrinolysis. Whereas Lp(a) concentrations have been linked to venous thromboembolic disease (VTE) risk, apo(a) polymorphisms in VTE have not been studied. METHODS We used a standardized high resolution agarose gel(More)
The human circulatory system consists of arterial blood that delivers nutrients to tissues, and venous blood that removes the metabolic by-products. Although it is well established that arterial blood generally has higher concentrations of glucose and oxygen relative to venous blood, a comprehensive biochemical characterization of arteriovenous differences(More)
