A body of evidence have been reported that reloading of atorvastatin have efficacy in reducing periprocedural myocardial infarction and contrast induced nephropathy. These effects are considered to be mainly due to their antioxidant anti-thrombotic and anti-inflammatory property.
We, therefore, hypothesize that high dose atorvastatin re-loading may prevent DVT.

The OPTIENOX-PCI is a randomized study, which is designed to assess the anticoagulation profile of different dose regimens of enoxaparin, i.e., 0.5 mg/kg, 0.75 mg/kg, and 0.5 mg/kg with ad...
The main objective of this study is to determine the time interval following the last treatment dose of enoxaparin at which the amount of anti-Xa level activity is reliably less than 0.2IU...
The aim of this research is to better understand how patient-level factors can be used to predict the appropriate enoxaparin dose to maximize venous thromboembolism (VTE) risk reduction an...
This is a clinical trial including non-surgical patients, 70 years of age or older, with renal impairment requiring pharmacological venous thromboembolism prevention during hospitalization...
The rates of Venous thromboembolism (VTE) after orthopedic surgery are as high as 40-60% without prophylactic measures. Enoxaparin, a low-molecular-weight heparin, produces an anticoagulan...
Many thoracic surgery patients have venous thromboembolism (VTE) events despite the receipt of chemical prophylaxis. Enoxaparin's pharmacologic impact can be quantified using anti-Factor Xa (aFXa) lev...
Background: Enoxaparin, a low-molecular-weight heparin approved for prophylaxis in patients at risk for venous thromboembolism (VTE), offers several advantages compared with unfractionated heparin (UF...
Low anti-Factor Xa (aFXa) level, indicative of inadequate enoxaparin dosing, has a significant association with 90-day venous thromboembolism (VTE) events. We examined the pharmacodynamics of enoxapar...
Surgeons commonly provide enoxaparin prophylaxis to high-risk patients to decrease venous thromboembolism risk. The authors' prior work demonstrated that most patients receive inadequate venous thromb...
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a life or limb threatening complication that occurs in plastic surgery patients. At present, the optimal dose of enoxaparin that balances the risk of VTE and the risk o...
Low-molecular-weight fragment of heparin, having a 4-enopyranosuronate sodium structure at the non-reducing end of the chain. It is prepared by depolymerization of the benzylic ester of porcine mucosal heparin. Therapeutically, it is used as an antithrombotic agent. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
Mice selectively bred for hypersusceptibility to two-stage chemical skin carcinogenesis. They are also hypersusceptible to UV radiation tumorigenesis with single high-dose, but not chronic low-dose, exposures. SENCAR (SENsitive to CARcinogenesis) mice are used in research as an animal model for tumor production.
The specific failure of a normally responsive individual to make an immune response to a known antigen. It results from previous contact with the antigen by an immunologically immature individual (fetus or neonate) or by an adult exposed to extreme high-dose or low-dose antigen, or by exposure to radiation, antimetabolites, antilymphocytic serum, etc.
A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
Statins (or HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors) are a class of drug used to lower cholesterol levels by inhibiting the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, which plays a central role in the production of cholesterol in the liver. Increased cholesterol levels have been as...
Cholesterol is a waxy steroid metabolite found in the cell membranes and transported in the blood plasma. It is an important structural component of mammalian cell membranes, where it is establishes proper membrane permeability and fluidity. Cholesterol ...
