In this study the investigators will determine the safety and effectiveness of Tinzaparin in preventing blood clots for up to 12 months of treatment.
The purpose of this study is to use long-term administration of a low molecular weight heparin (tinzaparin) for primary treatment and secondary prophylaxis of venous thromboembolism in patients with cancer. We will determine the efficacy (recurrent VTE) and safety (major hemorrhage) of this approach. Secondarily, we will analyze the outcome of patients in terms of survival and response to therapy versus matched controls. We will also determine baseline levels of markers of hemostasis, fibrinolysis, and angiogenesis and will follow changes with treatment as well as correlate levels of these plasma markers with outcomes, including recurrent venous thromboembolism, major hemorrhage,and survival.

The aim of this study is to verify, through clinical examination and doppler, the non-inferiority of the drug test (heparin sodium 5.000UI/0.25 mL - HIPOLABOR) in relation to the drug comp...
To determine the safety of prophylaxis with Tinzaparin low molecular weight heparin in primary brain tumor patients. 2. To determine the incidence of deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary ...
The purpose of this study is to assess if accumulation of anti-Xa activity occurs after repeated daily administration of prophylactic doses of tinzaparin in patients with severe chronic ki...
The objective of this study is to assess the efficacy and safety of DU-176b compared with enoxaparin sodium for the prevention of venous thromboembolism in patients after elective total k...
The primary objective is to evaluate the efficacy (as measured by the rate of recurrent symptomatic Venous Thromboembolism (i.e., Pulmonary thromboembolism and Deep Vein Thrombosis) and sa...
Venous thromboembolism is a common complication of cancer, but the risk of developing venous thromboembolism varies greatly among individuals and depends on numerous factors, including type of cancer....
Optimal prophylactic strategies in pregnant women with a history of venous thromboembolism (VTE) are unknown.
Venous thromboembolism chemoprophylaxis with warfarin is common after total joint arthroplasty. Early response to warfarin initiation has been theorized to engender a transient increase in the risk of...
Frequency of venous thromboembolism in pediatric trauma patients admitted to PICUs is not insignificant, ranging up to 6%. Risk factors have been identified in this population. However, there is littl...
Anemia is a common finding and independent predictor for adverse outcomes in hospitalized patients with medical illness. It remains unclear whether anemia is a risk factor for venous thromboembolism a...
Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.
Obstruction of a vein or VEINS (embolism) by a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the blood stream.
Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.
Sodium or sodium compounds used in foods or as a food. The most frequently used compounds are sodium chloride or sodium glutamate.
A voltage-gated sodium channel subtype that mediates the sodium ion PERMEABILITY of CARDIOMYOCYTES. Defects in the SCN5A gene, which codes for the alpha subunit of this sodium channel, are associated with a variety of CARDIAC DISEASES that result from loss of sodium channel function.
Head and neck cancers
Cancer can occur in any of the tissues or organs in the head and neck. There are over 30 different places that cancer can develop in the head and neck area. Mouth cancers (oral cancers) - Mouth cancer can develop on the lip, the tongue, the floor...
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...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
