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.
BACKGROUND: Children diagnosed with cancer are at a significantly higher risk of developing a thrombotic event (TE) compared with the general population. The rarity of these events makes it difficult to discern the specific risk factors; however, age, sex, presence of central venous lines, inherited thrombophilia, and mediastinal mass may play a role. The primary aim of this study is to identify prognostic characteristics of children diagnosed with non-lymphoblastic...
Defects of platelet intracellular signaling can result in severe platelet dysfunction. Several mutations in each of the linked genes FERMT3 and RASGRP2 on chromosome 11 causing a Glanzmann-like bleeding phenotype have been identified so far. We report on novel variants in two unrelated pediatric patients with severe bleeding diathesis-one with leukocyte adhesion deficiency type III due to a homozygous frameshift in FERMT3 and the other with homozygous variants in both,...
Neutrophil extracellular traps, or NETs, are heterogenous, filamentous structures which consist of extracellular DNA, granular proteins, and histones. NETs are extruded by a neutrophil in response to various stimuli. Although NETs were initially implicated in immune defense, subsequent studies have implicated NETs in a spectrum of disease processes, including autoimmune disease, thrombosis, and cancer. NETs also contribute to the pathogenesis of several common liver...
AIM: We evaluated the safety of baricitinib in an East Asian (EA) patient population with moderate-to-severely active rheumatoid arthritis (RA), through an integrated sub-analysis of data from the overall baricitinib RA clinical program.
METHODS: Data from EA patients who received any dose of baricitinib from five completed studies (1 Phase 2, 4 Phase 3) and an ongoing long-term extension study were pooled up to 1 September, 2016. Exposure-adjusted incidence rates...
Tumor thrombus is an intravascular malign tumor extension that may occur in various types of cancer. Hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC) are common causes of malign thrombus. The presence of a malign thrombus due to HCC has a dismal prognosis, which affects treatment choices. We present three cases of tumor thrombi due to advanced HCC detected by 18F-FDG PET/CT.

Portal vein thrombosis in children with essential thrombocythemia (ET) is a rarity. Here, we describe the long-term follow up of our previously reported case that since has developed portal vein thrombosis (PVT) 7-years after diagnosis. Our patient had presented with PVT with normal platelet counts and massive asymptomatic splenomegaly. Ultrasound and Computerized tomography confirmed presence of PVT. Our case highlights the importance of long-term follow up of children with...

BACKGROUND: Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the major type of primary liver cancer. Intrahepatic metastasis, such as portal vein tumor thrombosis (PVTT), strongly indicates poor prognosis of HCC. But now, there are limited understandings of the molecular features and mechanisms of those metastatic HCCs.
METHODS: To characterize the molecular alterations of the metastatic HCCs, we implemented an integrative analysis of the copy number variations (CNVs), DNA...
BACKGROUND: Primary thrombosis of the pulmonary vasculatures without extra-pulmonary sources of embolism are uncommon. Here, we report 2 cases of thrombosis of the stump of the remnant pulmonary vasculatures after lung resection complicated by embolic events with review of the literature.
CASE PRESENTATION: A 75-year-old female was consulted to evaluate cardiac source of embolism for acute cerebral infarction. The patient underwent left upper lobectomy because of...
BACKGROUND: A reliable central venous access device is a cornerstone in the treatment of cancer. Both peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC) and totally implanted chest ports (PORT) are commonly used for the delivery of chemotherapy. Both types of catheter can cause adverse events such as catheter-related deep venous thrombosis (CR-DVT), infection and mechanical complications.
METHOD: We conducted a randomised controlled trial including 399 patients with...
