The aim of this study is to assess multi-center reproducibility and longitudinal consistency of MRI imaging measurements, as part of a phase III longitudinal multi-center study comparing the neurotoxic effect following prophylactic cranial irradiation with hippocampal avoidance (HA-PCI), in comparison with conventional PCI in patients with small-cell lung cancer.
In microvascular surgery, patients often receive unfractionated heparin infusions to minimize risk for microvascular thrombosis. Patients who receive intravenous (IV) heparin are believed to have adequate prophylaxis against venous thromboembolism (VTE). Whether a fixed dose of IV heparin provides detectable levels of anticoagulation, or whether the "one size fits all" approach provides adequate prophylaxis against VTE remains unknown. This study examined the pharmacodynamics of fixed-dose heparin infusi...
Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is an adverse reaction to heparin characterized by thrombocytopenia and thrombotic complications. HIT is caused by pathogenic antibodies that bind to complexes of platelet factor 4 and heparin (PF4/heparin) leading to platelet activation and inducing a hypercoagulable state. Previous studies have shown immunity to PF4/heparin occurs early in life even before heparin exposure; however, the immunogenesis of HIT is not well characterized.
The implementation of rapid and reliable drug susceptibilities diagnosis is fundamental for effective treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis(MDR-TB). The present study aimed to assess the diagnostic performance of the 2-version GenoType MTBDRsl kit as well as the impact of its implementation on the turnaround time in a multi-center Chinese study.
This study aimed to investigate the possible influence of the RAP on dental implant osseointegration. Orthognathic surgery was set as an intervention for RAP, and a multi-center cohort study of two groups was undertaken. Group O included patients with single implant placement at least 4 months after orthognathic surgery and functional loading for more than 1 year, while controls (Group C) were without any major surgery. Clinical and radiographic assessments of implants, including changes in marginal bone le...
Exercise increases water requirements, but there is little information regarding water loss in dogs performing multi-day exercise OBJECTIVES: Quantify the daily water turnover of working dogs during multi-day exercise and establish the suitability of SC administration of tracer to determine water turnover.
Systemic anticoagulation with unfractionated heparin is standard of care for patients receiving extracorporeal life support (ECLS); however, an alternative anticoagulant may be necessary when challenges with heparin therapy arise. Evidence for alternative anticoagulation in ECLS patients is limited. This retrospective analysis evaluated the dosing and outcomes associated with bivalirudin use in 14 adult ECLS patients. Indications for bivalirudin included heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, heparin resistance,...
The present multi-center retrospective study aimed to compare the outcome of carotid artery stenting (CAS) versus carotid endarterectomy (CEA) among Korean patients with symptomatic extracranial carotid stenosis.
Heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is a major and potentially fatal consequence of antibodies produced against platelet factor 4 (PF4)-heparin complexes following heparin exposure. Not all anti-PF4-heparin antibodies are pathogenic, hence over-diagnosis can occur with resulting inappropriate use of alternative anti-coagulation therapies that have associated risks of bleeding. However, definitive platelet functional assays are not widely available for routine analysis.
Accuracy, reproducibility and costs of different laboratory assays for the monitoring of unfractionated heparin in clinical practice: a prospective evaluation study and survey among Swiss institutions.
To investigate the accuracy, reproducibility and costs of different laboratory assays for the monitoring of unfractionated heparin (UFH) in clinical practice and to study test utilisation in Switzerland.
This prospective, multi-center, phase III study evaluated blue light flexible cystoscopy (BLFC) with Hexaminolevulinate (HAL) in office surveillance of patients with non-muscle invasive bladder cancer at high risk of recurrence. We evaluated the impact on pain, anxiety, subjective value of the test, and willingness to pay.
In the early stage of sepsis, M1 macrophages result in the production of inflammatory mediators and AKI. Heparin-binding protein (HBP) have been shown to play important roles in sepsis-induced AKI. In this study, we investigate the association of HBP with M1 macrophages in sepsis-induced AKI.
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are essential during tissue repair and remodeling after injury. Glycosaminoglycan (GAG) sugars are known to enhance BMP activity in vitro and in vivo; here the interactions of BMP-2 with various glycosaminoglycan classes were compared and shown to be selective for heparin over other comparable saccharides. The minimal chain lengths and specific sulfate moieties required for heparin-derived oligosaccharide binding to BMP-2, and the ability of such oligosaccharides to promot...
Neonates undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) are at risk for excessive bleeding. Blood is anticoagulated with heparin during CPB. Heparin activity is reversed with protamine at the end of CPB. Paradoxically, protamine also inhibits blood coagulation when it is dosed in excess of heparin.
Background: Active surveillance has been introduced as an alternative management option for low-risk papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC), due to its indolence. Methods: This is a multi-center study of 370 PTMC patients who underwent active surveillance more than 1 year. The changes in volume and maximum diameter between initial and last ultrasonography were evaluated to identify the natural course of PTMC during active surveillance Results: Patients' age at diagnosis was 51±12 years, and 110 patients ...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a lung disease which can be quantified using chest computed tomography (CT) scans. Recent studies have shown that COPD can be automatically diagnosed using weakly supervised learning of intensity and texture distributions. However, up till now such classifiers have only been evaluated on scans from a single domain, and it is unclear whether they would generalize across domains, such as different scanners or scanning protocols. To address this problem, we inves...
Recently, our institution adopted a weight-based nurse-driven heparin titration protocol that relies on nurses ordering laboratories, adjusting doses, and initiating boluses. Numerous institutions have implemented similar protocols with reported success.
The optimal anti-coagulation strategy for patients with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction treated with percutaneous coronary intervention is unclear in contemporary clinical practice of radial access and potent P2Y12-inhibitors. The aim of this study was to investigate whether bivalirudin was superior to heparin monotherapy in patients with non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction without routine glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor use.
Fibronectin is a large multi-domain protein of the extracellular matrix that harbors two heparin binding sites, Hep-I and Hep-II, which support the heparin-dependent adhesion of melanoma and neuroblastoma cells.1,2,3 The stronger heparin/HS binding site on fibronectin, Hep-II, spans across fibronectin type III-domains 12 to 14. Previous site-directed mutagenesis, NMR chemical shift perturbation, and crystallographic structural studies all agree in that the main heparin binding site is located on the surface...
This paper reports the ability of synthetically-simple, commercially-viable sugar-derived 1,3:2,4-dibenzylidenesorbitol-4',4"-diacylhydrazide (DBS-CONHNH2) to support cell growth. Simple mixing and orthogonal self-sorting can formulate heparin, agarose, and heparin-binding micelles into these gels - easily incorporating additional function. Interestingly, the components used in the gel formulation, direct the ability of cells to grow, meaning the chemical programming of these multi-component gels is directl...
This study aimed to investigate effects of a flexible multi-component workplace intervention program for improving physical activity among Japanese white-collar employees in a cluster randomized controlled trial design.
Human acidic fibroblast growth factor 1 (hFGF1) is a protein intricately involved in cell growth and tissue repair. In this study, we investigate the effect(s) of understanding the role of a conserved proline (P135), located in the heparin binding pocket, on the structure, stability, heparin binding affinity, and cell proliferation activity of hFGF1. Substitution of proline-135 with a positively charged lysine (P135K) resulted in partial destabilization of the protein; however, the overall structural integr...
We recently reported a real-time method to measure heparin in human whole blood based on the photoacoustic change of methylene blue (MB). Intriguingly, the MB behaved unlike other "turn on" photoacoustic probes-the absorbance decreased as the photoacoustic signal increased. The underlying mechanism was not clear and motivated this study. We studied the binding mechanism of MB and heparin in water and phosphate buffer saline (PBS) with both experimental and computational methods. We found that the photoacous...
We have previously shown that the heterodimeric cytokine interleukin-12, and the homodimer of its larger subunit p40, both bind to heparin and heparan sulfate with relatively high affinity. In the present study we characterised these interactions using a series of chemically modified heparins as competitive inhibitors. Human interleukin-12 and p40 homodimer show indistinguishable binding profiles with a panel of heparin derivatives, but that of murine interleukin-12 is distinct. Heparin markedly protects th...
