Blood Coagulation Factors

Climacteric: The Journal of the International Menopause Society

The process of aging is accompanied by several modifications in the hemostatic system at different levels (blood coagulation, fibrinolysis, platelet activity, vascular endothelium). These changes may explain the higher incidence of arterial and venous thrombosis in the elderly compared to young people. Genetic and environmental factors modulate in different combinations the expression of proteins involved in the hemostatic process. Among the latter, diet and smoking habits play an important role, as well as physical exercise and, for women, hormonal status.

Evidence has been sought of activation of the coagulation system in two groups of patients following the infusion of two heparinised clotting factor concentrates. No changes were detected in 13 patients with mild hepatic dysfunction. In six studies on patients with Christmas disease induced abnormalities occurred in only one. Activation of the coagulation mechanism did not occur in another individual who had received the same batch of material.

BACKGROUND: Modern management of haemophilia patients is expensive: 90% of expenditure is on clotting factor concentrates. Any intervention which reduces the need for clotting factor concentrates in these patients without compromising the quality of life is of interest. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To investigate the effectiveness of individualised homeopathic medicines in reducing the requirement of factor concentrates in haemophilia patients.

PURPOSE: To highlight the development and achievements of hemostasis and thrombosis research in China over the past 50 years. DATA SOURCES: Both Chinese and English language literature search using MEDLINE (1990-1998), and original articles published in the main Chinese and international journals. STUDY SELECTION: After reviewing all the main articles on thrombosis and hemostasis, 20 of them were selected that specifically addressed the stated purpose. DATE EXTRATION: The content that could present the progress in hemostasis and thrombosis in China was selected.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of Yangyin Shengjin Decoction (YYSJD) on hemorheological parameters and coagulation factors in model rabbits with syndrome of excessive heat consuming body fluid and blood stasis. METHODS: Rabbit model with syndrome of excessive heat consuming body fluid and blood stasis was produced.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate effects of the integrated traditional Chinese medicine Xuebijing injection on thrombomodulin (TM) and endothelial cell protein C receptor (EPCR) in septic rats. METHODS: Ninety-six healthy Wistar rats were randomly divided into four groups: control group, sham operation group, cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) model group, and Xuebijing-treated group. Sepsis was reproduced by CLP. The two latter groups were divided into five subgroups of 2, 8, 24, 48 and 72-hour with 8 rats in each subgroup.
