We have set up this channel to give you convenient access to the latest research in the area of Cancer-associated thrombosis (CAT) by providing a customised feed of abstracts of clinical papers published on PubMed. The combination of search terms providing the feed below is 'cancer AND thrombosis'. This channel is sorted chronologically. To see more information about a given paper, click the ‘Preview Abstract’ button below, and this will reveal an expanded abstract.
A 60-year-old man was found unconscious at work, without any signs of trauma. At the site, he presented with tonic-clonic seizures, central facial palsy and eye deviation. A CT scan of the cerebrum did not find bleeding or thrombosis, but contrast enhancement at the superior sagittal sinus and pathological cervical lymph nodes. The MRI demonstrated multiple intracerebral metastases, while a supplementary fluoro-deoxy-glucose positron emission tomography scan revealed...
Collagen and fibrin engagement and activation of glycoprotein (GP) VI induces proteolytic cleavage of the GPVI ectodomain generating shed soluble GPVI (sGPVI). Collagen-mediated GPVI shedding requires intracellular signalling to release the sGPVI, mediated by A Disintegrin And Metalloproteinase 10 (ADAM10), however the precise mechanism by which fibrin induces GPVI shedding remains elusive. Plasma sGPVI levels are elevated in patients with coagulopathies, sepsis or...
OBJECTIVE: Peripherally inserted central venous catheter (PICC)-related thrombosis (PRT) is a serious complication that can lead to interruptions in chemotherapy and other supportive care, as well as increased hospital stay and costs. We conducted a retrospective study to evaluate the patterns of symptomatic PRT in patients with cancer undergoing chemotherapy and their risk factors.
METHODS: A retrospective study of 938 PICC patients from our institution between...
BACKGROUND & AIMS: Patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) secondary to chronic liver disease often require invasive procedures, but frequently have thrombocytopenia. Lusutrombopag is an agonist of the thrombopoietin receptor that activates platelet production.
METHODS: We performed an integrated analysis of data from 2 phase 3 trials (L-PLUS 1, Japan, October 2013 to May 2014 and L-PLUS 2, global, June 2015 to April 2017) that compared efficacy and safety of...
BACKGROUND: Vascular targeting uses molecular markers on the surface of diseased vasculature for ligand-directed drug delivery to induce vessel occlusion or destruction. In the absence of discriminatory markers, such as in brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), stereotactic radiosurgery may be used to prime molecular changes on the endothelial surface. This study explored αB-crystallin (CRYAB) as a radiation induced target and pre-tested the specificity and efficacy of a...
Increased tendency of cancer patient to develop venous thromboembolism (VTE) is associated with high rates of mortality. Elevation of procoagulant proteins and down regulation of naturally occurring coagulation inhibitors appears to form the basis of high risk of VTE in malignancy. A reduced level of anticoagulant protein like antithrombin (AT) will influence both coagulation and angiogenesis, as its cleaved and latent conformations show potent antiangiogenic activity. We...
The signal transduction enzyme phospholipase D1 (PLD1) hydrolyzes phosphatidylcholine to generate the lipid second-messenger phosphatidic acid, which plays roles in disease processes such as thrombosis and cancer. PLD1 is directly and synergistically regulated by protein kinase C, Arf and Rho GTPases, and the membrane lipid phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2). Here, we present a 1.8 Å-resolution crystal structure of the human PLD1 catalytic domain, which is...
BACKGROUND: Cancer is a risk factor for perioperative deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism (DVT/PE). However, there is a paucity of data on non-malignant digestive diseases. In this study, we aimed to investigate the incidence of DVT/PE among patients, following surgery for acute appendicitis and other digestive diseases.
METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the records of patients who underwent surgical procedures involving the digestive system between...
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Activation of the immune checkpoints and expression of chemokines and chemokine receptors have been reported to promote HCC progression. This study aimed to assess the differential expression of Tim-3, PD-1, and CCR5 on peripheral blood lymphocytes from patients with HCV-related HCC and correlate their expression with the treatment outcomes.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study incorporated 40 patients with chronic HCV-related HCC and 40 healthy...
A 70-year-old man diagnosed with lung adenocarcinoma was referred to our department for an evaluation of acute onset of nephrotic syndrome with acute kidney injury (AKI) after the 7th course of pembrolizumab treatment. Renal biopsy could not be performed, because he needed anticoagulation therapy for venous thrombosis. Pembrolizumab was discontinued, and prednisolone was started. Hemodialysis was also started, because oliguria was not resolved, and dyspnea due to pulmonary...
