Warfarin-induced skin necrosis following heparin-induced thrombocytopenia.

Anticoagulants, such as heparin and warfarin, are commonly used in the treatment and prevention of thromboembolic events. The risk of developing warfarin-induced skin necrosis (WISN) with warfarin is ...

Salidroside suppresses solar ultraviolet-induced skin inflammation by targeting cyclooxygenase-2.

Solar ultraviolet (SUV) irradiation causes skin disorders such as inflammation, photoaging, and carcinogenesis. Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) plays a key role in SUV-induced skin inflammation, and targetin...

Skin necrosis with vitamin K antagonists: An imbalance between coagulant and anticoagulant factors.

Skin necrosis with vitamin k antagonists are rare. They affect more frequently middle-aged and obese women, often within 10 days after initiating of treatment. They occur most often in a context of t...

Acquired haemophilia:: an easy diagnosis to miss in a patient taking warfarin.

Acquired Haemophilia (AH) is an autoimmune bleeding disorder, which despite being rare, can be fatal. It occurs in patients with previously normal haemostasis who spontaneously develop IgG autoantibod...

Daily Ingestion of Aloe Vera Gel Powder Containing Aloe Sterols Prevents Skin Photoaging in OVX Hairless Mice.

Estrogen deficiencies associated with menopause accelerate spontaneous skin aging and stimulate the ultraviolet (UV) irradiation-induced photoaging of skin. However, food compositions with the potenti...

Warfarin Patient Self-Monitoring

Atrial Fibrillation is a heart condition in which people are treated with blood thinners such as warfarin to decrease the risk of stroke. Large studies have shown that when patients adjust...

Drug Interaction Study of Rifampin and Warfarin in Healthy Volunteers.

The purpose of this study is to determine the importance of uptake drug transporters in the drug disposition of warfarin. We predict that the elimination of warfarin will be decreased whe...

Warfarin - How Good Are we at Maintaining Target Range ?

Patients with atrial fibrillation are often anticoagulated with Warfarin. Warfarin has a narrow therapeutic window requiring frequent monitoring. This study aims to investigate the inciden...

Clarification of Optimal Anticoagulation Through Genetics

Individuals taking warfarin often need frequent dose changes as the international normalized ratio (INR) gets too high or too low which could result in a higher risk of thromboembolism, bl...

A Study to Determine the Effects of Multiple Doses of Mipomersen (200 mg SC) on the Pharmacodynamics and Pharmacokinetics of Single-dose Warfarin

The purpose of this study is to assess how blood clotting and thinning time is effected when a single dose of warfarin is given alone and when a single dose of warfarin is given with mipom...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An anticoagulant that acts by inhibiting the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors. Warfarin is indicated for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of venous thrombosis and its extension, pulmonary embolism, and atrial fibrillation with embolization. It is also used as an adjunct in the prophylaxis of systemic embolism after myocardial infarction. Warfarin is also used as a rodenticide.

Skin diseases affecting or involving the cutaneous blood vessels and generally manifested as inflammation, swelling, erythema, or necrosis in the affected area.

Insoluble polymers of TYROSINE derivatives found in and causing darkness in skin (SKIN PIGMENTATION), hair, and feathers providing protection against SUNBURN induced by SUNLIGHT. CAROTENES contribute yellow and red coloration.

A family of proteins that were originally identified by their ability to cause NECROSIS of NEOPLASMS. Their necrotic effect on cells is mediated through TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR RECEPTORS which induce APOPTOSIS.

Abnormally high temperature intentionally induced in living things regionally or whole body. It is most often induced by radiation (heat waves, infra-red), ultrasound, or drugs.
