Plasminogen deficiency has emerged as a well-recognized disorder in which reduced levels of plasminogen lead to the development of pseudo membranes on mucosal surfaces, with subsequent end-organ damage of the affected tissue. Ligneous conjunctivitis is the most recognizable, well-documented, and common presentation of the clinical syndromes associated with(More)
Plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) is an important component of the coagulation system that down-regulates fibrinolysis in the circulation. Reduced PAI-1 levels may result in increased fibrinolysis and an associated bleeding diathesis. Clear documentation of PAI-1 deficiency as a cause of a bleeding disorder has been rare. PAI-1 was initially(More)
Despite significant advances in the treatment of haemophilia, including availability of recombinant coagulation factor replacement products and the use of prophylactic infusion regimens, the segment of haemophilic patients who develop inhibitory antibodies remain at higher risk for morbidity and mortality associated with recurrent or uncontrolled bleeding(More)
BACKGROUND Meningitis is characterized by an inflammation of the meninges, or the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial for a positive outcome, yet identifying meningitis is a complex process involving an array of signs and symptoms and multiple causal factors which require novel solutions to support(More)
The effects of chronic kidney disease have been difficult to quantify using traditional measures of mortality and biological processes. New approaches to the quantification of outcomes in kidney disease are required. A wide variety of methods have become available and are now in use in some studies. Psychometric approaches, such as the Sickness Impact(More)
