    Disruption of the mouse gene encoding the blood coagulation inhibitor thrombomodulin (Thbd) leads to embryonic lethality caused by an unknown defect in the placenta. We show that the abortion of thrombomodulin-deficient embryos is caused by tissue factor-initiated activation of the blood...

    Aims: To assess the prevalence of thrombophilia among Chinese women with venous thromboembolism (VTE) developed during pregnancy. Methods: Based on information from a tertiary teaching unit, all recorded cases of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) during pregnancy diagnosed...

    Background: Activated Protein C Resistance (APCR), a poor anticoagulant response of APC in haemostasis, is the commonest heritable thrombophilia. Adverse outcomes during pregnancy have been linked to APCR. This study determined the frequency of APCR, factor V gene known and novel SNPs and...

    Protein C global is a global dotting assay that evaluates abnormalities in the protein C anticoagulant pathway. A few studies have examined this assay in relation to assisted reproductive technology (ART), but its role in infertile women with in vitro fertilization (IVF) failure remains unclear....

  • Pregnancy and Delivery in Protein C-Deficiency. Sugiura, Mayumi // Current Drug Targets;Aug2005, Vol. 6 Issue 5, p577 

    Activated protein C (APC) is a strong inhibitor of coagulation, inactivating coagulation factors Va and VIIIa upon binding to protein S (PS) in the presence of thrombin and thrombomodulin. The normal concentration of PC in the plasma is approximately 4 �g/ml. Throughout pregnancy, PC...

  • Venous thromboembolism in women. Rathbun, Suman // Vascular Medicine;2008, Vol. 13 Issue 3, p225 

    The risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) varies throughout a woman's life and is associated primarily with underlying hormonal exposure. Alteration in hemostatic mechanisms, including resistance to activated protein C, may explain this altered risk. Initially, development of VTE with the use of...

    BACKGROUND: Factor V Leiden mutation (Arg506Gln) increases the likelihood of venous thrombosis; it may also have a positive effect through facilitation of embryo implantation. This may manifest itself as a reduced time to pregnancy (increased fecundity) and fewer miscarriages in the first...

    A 26-year-old woman with hereditary angineurotic oedema (HAE) presented at 22 weeks gestation with severe cutaneous necrosis similar to that seen in coumarin skin necrosis. Protein S deficiency secondary to HAE and pregnancy was postulated. Treatment with heparin, Cl-inhibitor concentrates,...

    Acquired resistance to activated protein C has been reported during oral contraception and pregnancy. Its thrombogenic potential was studied in 41 neurosurgical patients who were enrolled in the placebo group of a thromboprophylaxis trial. Normalized activated protein C sensitivity ratio...
