RATIONALE: Tissue plasminogen activator and captopril may help the body generate angiostatin. Angiostatin may stop the growth of cancer by stopping blood flow to the tumor. PURPOSE: This ...
Tissue Plasminogen Activator and Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor Type-1 Gene Expression will be evaluated clinically and histopathologically through Hematoxylin and eosin as well as by qua...
The purpose of this trial is to compare the efficacy and safety of Recombinant Human Tissue-Type Plasminogen Activator Derivative(rPA) and Recombinant Tissue-Type Plasminogen Activator(rt-...
Evaluation of ischemic stroke patients receiving tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) during air ambulance transfer
The primary hypothesis being tested in this trial is that ischaemic stroke patients selected with significant penumbral mismatch (measured by MRI criteria) at 3 - 9 hours post onset of str...
Deficiencies of plasminogen and plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) are rare disorders of fibrinolysis. Current laboratory assays for analysis of activity of plasminogen and PAI-1 do not pr...
Epileptogenesis progressively leads to the rearrangement of normal neuronal networks into more excitable ones and can be viewed as a form of neuroplasticity the molecular mechanisms of which still rem...
Delayed thrombolytic therapy with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) may exacerbate blood-brain barrier (BBB) breakdown after ischemic stroke and lead to catastrophic hemorrhagic transform...
To evaluate the effectiveness of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) and sulphur hexafluoride gas (SF6) intravitreal injection for the displacement of large submacular hemorrhages (SMH) se...
Residual hematoma following operative management of acute subdural hematoma contributes to reoperation and is cited as a reason for deferment of less invasive drainage strategies. Although local antit...
An acylated inactive complex of streptokinase and human lysine-plasminogen. After injection, the acyl group is slowly hydrolyzed, producing an activator that converts plasminogen to plasmin, thereby initiating fibrinolysis. Its half-life is about 90 minutes compared to 5 minutes for TPA; (TISSUE PLASMINOGEN ACTIVATOR); 16 minutes for UROKINASE-TYPE PLASMINOGEN ACTIVATOR and 23 minutes for STREPTOKINASE. If treatment is initiated within 3 hours of onset of symptoms for acute myocardial infarction, the drug preserves myocardial tissue and left ventricular function and increases coronary artery patency. Bleeding complications are similar to other thrombolytic agents.
A proteolytic enzyme in the serine protease family found in many tissues which converts PLASMINOGEN to FIBRINOLYSIN. It has fibrin-binding activity and is immunologically different from UROKINASE-TYPE PLASMINOGEN ACTIVATOR. The primary sequence, composed of 527 amino acids, is identical in both the naturally occurring and synthetic proteases.
An extracellular receptor specific for UROKINASE-TYPE PLASMINOGEN ACTIVATOR. It is attached to the cell membrane via a GLYCOSYLPHOSPHATIDYLINOSITOL LINKAGE and plays a role in the co-localization of urokinase-type plasminogen activator with PLASMINOGEN.
Member of the serpin family of proteins. It inhibits both the tissue-type and urokinase-type plasminogen activators.

Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
