Platelet Reactivity In Patients With Nuisance Bleeding On A Thienopyridine

2014-08-27 03:12:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objective is to describe and quantify levels of platelet reactivity in three different cohorts of patients taking thienopyridine: patients who report nuisance bleeding, patients who report alarming bleeding, and patients who report no nuisance or alarming bleeding. The investigators hypothesize that patients with nuisance or alarming bleeding events on maintenance thienopyridine therapy will have lower levels of platelet reactivity than patients without nuisance or alarming bleeding on thienopyridine therapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Drugs or agents which antagonize or impair any mechanism leading to blood platelet aggregation, whether during the phases of activation and shape change or following the dense-granule release reaction and stimulation of the prostaglandin-thromboxane system.

Surface glycoproteins on platelets which have a key role in hemostasis and thrombosis such as platelet adhesion and aggregation. Many of these are receptors.

Platelet membrane glycoprotein complex important for platelet adhesion and aggregation. It is an integrin complex containing INTEGRIN ALPHAIIB and INTEGRIN BETA3 which recognizes the arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD) sequence present on several adhesive proteins. As such, it is a receptor for FIBRINOGEN; VON WILLEBRAND FACTOR; FIBRONECTIN; VITRONECTIN; and THROMBOSPONDINS. A deficiency of GPIIb-IIIa results in GLANZMANN THROMBASTHENIA.

A congenital bleeding disorder with prolonged bleeding time, absence of aggregation of platelets in response to most agents, especially ADP, and impaired or absent clot retraction. Platelet membranes are deficient in or have a defect in the glycoprotein IIb-IIIa complex (PLATELET GLYCOPROTEIN GPIIB-IIIA COMPLEX).

A phosphodiesterase inhibitor which inhibits platelet aggregation. Formerly used as an antineoplastic.
