1. Receptor-mediated clearance of factor VIII: implications for pharmacokinetic studies in individuals with haemophilia.
Match Strength: 6.722
Summary The present review discusses the current concept of receptor-mediated clearance of coagulation factor VIII (FVIII) from the circulation in vivo, which is one of the mechanisms regulating FVIII level in plasma. Several lines of experimental evidence suggest that two receptors from the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor family, low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein (LRP) and LDL receptor (LDLR), cooperate in this process. Administration of receptor-associated protein, a classical antagonist of these receptors, leads to prolongation of FVIII half-life in mice. The elevation ... Read More »

2. Immune-mediated etiology of acquired von Willebrand syndrome in systemic lupus erythematosus and in benign monoclonal gammopathy: therapeutic implications.
Match Strength: 6.257
The most common nonimmune etiology of acquired von Willebrand syndrome (AvWS) includes hypothyroidism, Wilms' tumor, thrombocythemia, or congenital heart defects, and the use of various drugs. AvWS type 1 in patients with hypothyroidism is due to decreased Willebrand factor (vWF) synthesis and is reversible by treatment with thyroxin. AvWS type 1 or 3 in children with Wilms' tumor disappears after successful chemotherapy or tumor resection but the mechanism of the vWF deficiency is unknown. The AvWS type 2 in patients with thrombocythemia of various myeloproliferative disorders is caused by ... Read More »
