1. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy prevents coagulation disorders in an experimental model of multiple organ failure syndrome.
Match Strength: 9.330
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy on the coagulation cascade using an experimental model of multiple organ failure syndrome (MOFS). DESIGN: MOFS was induced by zymosan (500mg/kg i.p.) in rats. HBO therapy (2ATA) was administered in a cylindrical steel chamber 4 and 11h after zymosan administration. In a separate set of experiments animals were monitored for 72h, and systemic toxicity was scored. INTERVENTION: Eighteen hours after zymosan administration, rats were killed and blood samples were used for analysis of hemocoagulative parameters, hemodynamics, and ... Read More »

2. Thrombin activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI)--how does thrombin regulate fibrinolysis?
Match Strength: 8.488
The thrombin-catalysed conversion of plasma fibrinogen into fibrin and the development of an insoluble fibrin clot are the final steps of the coagulation cascade during haemostasis. A delicate balance between coagulation and fibrinolysis determines the stability of the fibrin clot. Thrombin plays a central role in this process, it not only forms the clot but it is also involved in stabilizing the clot by activating thrombin activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI). Activated TAFI protects the fibrin clot against lysis. Here we will discuss the mechanisms for regulation of fibrinolysis by ... Read More »
