Review: Platelet physiology and antiplatelet agents

26-Jan-2011 | Tim Thijs; Benedicte P. Nuyttens; Hans Deckmyn; Katleen Broos, Clinical Chemistry , 2011

Abstract Apart from the central beneficial role platelets play in hemostasis, they are also involved in atherothrombotic diseases. Here, we review the current knowledge of platelet intracellular signal transduction pathways involved in platelet adhesion, activation, amplification of the ...


Review: Methodological issues of genetic association studies

26-Jan-2011 | Ana-Maria Simundic, Clinical Chemistry , 2011

Abstract Genetic association studies explore the association between genetic polymorphisms and a certain trait, disease or predisposition to disease. It has long been acknowledged that many genetic association studies fail to replicate their initial positive findings. This raises concern about ...


Review: Pediatric thrombosis

26-Jan-2011 | Alenka Trampus-Bakija, Clinical Chemistry , 2011

Abstract Thrombotic risk factors and thrombosis in children has been receiving increased attention. True idiopathic thrombosis is extremely rare in children. Most patients have a significant underlying medical condition and the presence of a central catheter is the most important risk factor. ...


Review: Hyperhomocysteinemia and thrombophilia

26-Jan-2011 | Mojca Božič-Mijovski, Clinical Chemistry , 2011

Abstract It is now widely accepted that hyperhomocysteinemia (HHC) is a risk factor for thrombophilia. HHC is the result of either impaired enzyme function or a deficiency of vitamin B (folate, B6, B12), or both, and can be treated with vitamin supplements. Measuring plasma total homocysteine ...
