The purpose of this study is to see if Human Thrombin is as effective as Bovine Thrombin in stopping surgical bleeding within 10 minutes of application.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether recombinant human Thrombin (rhThrombin) is effective in stopping bleeding during surgery, in comparison with bovine thrombin.
This purpose of this clinical trial is to study the safety and efficacy of Topical Thrombin (Human) Grifols as an add-on treatment to help stop bleeding during vascular, parenchymous tissu...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety, tolerability and pharmacodynamics of a single iv dose of E-WE Thrombin in healthy adult subjects.
Sepsis is the 13th most common cause of death in the United States, causing approximately 210,000 deaths per year. Once DIC has developed, irreversible organ injury has already occurred a...
It was previously found that patients with symptom of myocardial dysfunction had increased levels of thrombin. Apixaban is one of the novel oral anticoagulant drugs widely used in clinic. As the inhib...
In vitro analysis of anticoagulant compounds with a potential use as antithrombotic drugs, has been traditionally performed using techniques like spectrophotometry, turbidimetry, as well as electroche...
The protease-activated receptor-1 (PAR-1) is critically involved in the co-activation of coagulation and inflammatory responses. Vorapaxar is a reversible, orally active, low molecular weight, competi...
Thrombin is a primary target of most anticoagulants. Yet, thrombin's dual and opposing role in pro- as well as anti- coagulant processes imposes considerable challenges in discovering finely tuned reg...
Bivalirudin is a parenteral anticoagulant that elicits its effect through inhibition of both free and clot bound-thrombin. Inhibition of thrombin serves as a unique mechanism for anticoagulation when ...
Clotting time of PLASMA mixed with a THROMBIN solution. It is a measure of the conversion of FIBRINOGEN to FIBRIN, which is prolonged by AFIBRINOGENEMIA, abnormal fibrinogen, or the presence of inhibitory substances, e.g., fibrin-fibrinogen degradation products, or HEPARIN. BATROXOBIN, a thrombin-like enzyme unaffected by the presence of heparin, may be used in place of thrombin.
A family of proteinase-activated receptors that are specific for THROMBIN. They are found primarily on PLATELETS and on ENDOTHELIAL CELLS. Activation of thrombin receptors occurs through the proteolytic action of THROMBIN, which cleaves the N-terminal peptide from the receptor to reveal a new N-terminal peptide that is a cryptic ligand for the receptor. The receptors signal through HETEROTRIMERIC GTP-BINDING PROTEINS. Small synthetic peptides that contain the unmasked N-terminal peptide sequence can also activate the receptor in the absence of proteolytic activity.
A vitamin-K dependent zymogen present in the blood, which, upon activation by thrombin and thrombomodulin exerts anticoagulant properties by inactivating factors Va and VIIIa at the rate-limiting steps of thrombin formation.
A plasma protein that is the inactive precursor of thrombin. It is converted to thrombin by a prothrombin activator complex consisting of factor Xa, factor V, phospholipid, and calcium ions. Deficiency of prothrombin leads to hypoprothrombinemia.
A dry artificial sterile sponge of fibrin prepared by clotting with thrombin a foam or solution of fibrinogen. It is used in conjunction with thrombin as a hemostatic in surgery at sites where bleeding cannot be controlled by more common methods. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p648)
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
