Re-STOP DVT: Reload of High Dose Atorvastatin for Preventing Deep Vein Thrombosis in Statin Users

2014-08-27 03:16:08 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Reload of high dose statin may have potential for preventing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in patients on statin undergoing total knee replacement arthroplasty.

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
