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 ...
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...
The purpose of this study is to determine which of 3 different doses of tenecteplase (TNK) is better for treating stroke patients and if TNK offers an advantage over currently available tr...
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of delivering recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) and ultrasound to the site of the blood clot blocking blood flow to the b...
Background Recombinant tissue plasminogen activator is the only FDA-approved thrombolytic agent for acute stroke treatment. However, there are concerns that recombinant tissue plasminogen activator ma...
Some stroke patients with the acute aortic dissection receiving thrombolysis treatment resulted in fatalities. Thus, the concurrent acute aortic dissection is the contraindication for the intravenous ...
Fibrinolysis shutdown (SD) is an independent risk factor for increased mortality in trauma. High levels of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) directly binding tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA...
Anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents effectively treat age-related macular degeneration and myopic choroidal neovascularization (CNV). Tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), a fibrinolytic comp...
For ischemic stroke, the chance of improved recovery is directly impacted by length of time from symptom onset to administration of intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (IV tPA). Despite the impor...
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.
A member of the serpin family of proteins. It inhibits both the tissue-type and urokinase-type plasminogen activators.
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...
