Recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator (rt-PA) is effective and widely used in the treatment of acute ischemic stroke (AIS). However, symptomatic intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), an adverse reaction of rt-PA, is known to occur depending on underlying diseases and rt-PA doses, and to occur more frequently with a greater delay from stroke onset until(More)
BACKGROUND Proteolysis constitutes a major post-translational modification. For example, proteases regulate the activation or inactivation of various proteins, such as enzymes, growth factors, and peptide hormones. Proteases have substrate specificity, and protease expression regulates the specific and regional activation or inactivation of several(More)
OBJECTIVES For improved thrombolysis therapy based on ultrasound irradiation, researchers and practitioners would strongly benefit from an easy and efficient in vitro assay system of thrombolysis activity involving irradiated ultrasound. For the present study, we designed a new in vitro sonothrombolysis assay system using a sheet-type clot. METHODS We(More)
