BACKGROUND Stent thrombosis remains an important complication after stent implantation, despite the use of dual antiplatelet therapy with aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) and clopidogrel. Several studies have shown an increased risk of thrombotic events in patients with resistance to clopidogrel. Some recent studies have suggested that a higher clopidogrel(More)
The aim of this phase II study was to determine the antitumour activity and safety of trans-1-diaminocyclohexane-platinum (oxaliplatin) in previously untreated advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. 33 patients with unresectable and measurable NSCLC were entered into this phase II study between January 1992 and January 1994. Patients had(More)
A rapid lateral flow immunoassay (LFIA) (STic Expert(®) HIT), recently developed for the diagnosis of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), was evaluated in a prospective multicentre cohort of 334 consecutive patients. The risk of HIT was estimated by the 4Ts score as low, intermediate and high in 28·7%, 61·7% and 9·6% of patients, respectively. Definite(More)
Two chemotherapy regimens for patients with extensive small-cell lung cancer were prospectively compared in a randomized multicentric trial with crossover. Every four weeks, 60 consecutive previously untreated patients received either DPE (doxorubicin, cisplatin and etoposide), or CIV (carboplatin, ifosfamide and vincristine) with crossover as soon as(More)
The results of the whole blood VerifyNow P2Y12 assay can be expressed as platelet reaction units (PRU) or % inhibition index (%inh), but an optimal cut-off for the assessment of high on-treatment platelet reactivity (HPR) predictive of clinical events has been validated only for PRU. The aim of the study was to study the influence of haematological(More)
In this single-center retrospective study, we evaluated the accuracy of laboratory tests in diagnosing acquired von Willebrand syndrome associated with lymphoproliferative disorders in 36 consecutive patients diagnosed at the University Hospital of Nantes, France. We also compared hemostatic treatments in the following groups: 21 patients with Waldenström(More)
This prospective, Post-Authorization Safety Surveillance (PASS) study was carried out in patients with hemophilia A or B and inhibitors treated with FEIBA for 1 year to collect real-world data on safety and effectiveness of FEIBA. The study followed a cohort design and did not make stipulations on treatment or observation schedule, as it was designed to(More)
