Arterial Microcirculation, Macrocirculation and Thrombophilias

2014-08-27 03:12:18 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Rationale: To analyse the arterial state of women with thrombophilia by techniques studying micro and arterial macrocirculation because of a reported and still discussed increase risk in cardio-vascular events in these women.

Primary objective: To measure endothelium dependent vasodilatation (VDE) in controls and in women with thrombophilia.

Description

There are several papers reporting an increase in the risk of arterial diseases in women with thrombophilia. However these reports remain controversial. In order to gain insight on that issue we propose to study the micro and macrocirculation in women with an history of venous thrombosis or thrombophilia and in controls matched by age.

Design: It is a prospective open transversal trial.

Management of the study: Two groups of 80 women will be compared: healthy volunteers and women with thrombophilia. Following an inclusion consultation where the informed consent will be obtained and inclusion criteria checked, an appointment for the arterial explorations will be given. These explorations will be measurement of endothelium dependent vasodilatation (EDV), capillar density, arterial fitness and compliance and retinogram. There is no follow-up visit.Benefits and risks: the measurement will characterize the arterial state of patients with thrombophilia included in the study.There is no risk in performing these techniques.

Principal criteria: measurement of EDV.

Secondary criteria: capillar density, arterial compliance and stiffness and retinogram.

Persons with no known significant health problems who are recruited to participate in research to test a new drug, device, or intervention as controls for a patient group. (from http://clinicalcenter.nih.gov/recruit/volunteers.html, accessed 2/14/2013)

Hospital or other institutional ethics committees established to consider the ethical dimensions of patient care. Distinguish from ETHICS COMMITTEES, RESEARCH, which are established to monitor the welfare of patients or healthy volunteers participating in research studies.

Human experimentation that is not intended to benefit the subjects on whom it is performed. Phase I drug studies (CLINICAL TRIALS, PHASE I AS TOPIC) and research involving healthy volunteers are examples of nontherapeutic human experimentation.

Standardized tests designed to measure abilities, as in intelligence, aptitude, and achievement tests, or to evaluate personality traits.
