Effect of pneumococci on blood clotting, platelets, and polymorphonuclear leukocytes

Infection and Immunity

Oct 1, 1975

J C Guckian

PMID: 331

Abstract

Infections due to Streptococcus pneumoniae and products from the organism have been associated with alterations in blood clotting and function of platelets. Pneumococci and pneumococcal polysaccharide shortened the clotting times of whole blood, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and platelet-...read more

Pneumococcal Invasive Disease

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.

Pneumococcal infection

Pneumococcal infection is an infection caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae, which is also called the pneumococcus.

Bacterial Pneumonia

Bacterial pneumonia is a prevalent and costly infection that is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in patients of all ages. Here is the latest research.

Blood Coagulation Signaling Pathways

Coagulation is the process by which a blood clot is formed. This process includes both the formation of a platelet plug as well as a cascade of clotting factors resulting in the formation of fibrin strands. Find the latest research on coagulation signaling pathways here.

13-Valent Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine

Platelet Signaling

Platelets are a blood cell that can initiate clot formation in response to damage to blood vessels. Find the latest research on platelet signaling here.

Platelet Activation

Platelets are a blood cell that can initiate clot formation in response to damage to blood vessels. Following platelet adhesion, platelets become activated before aggregating. Find the latest research on platelet activation here.

Coagulation Products

Coagulation products used to manage bleeding in patients with these disorders include AHF concentrates, factor IX concentrates, factor VIIa concentrate, factor IX complexes, anti-inhibitor coagulant complexes, and desmopressin acetate. Discover the latest research on coagulation products here.

Lung Fibrosis & Scleroderma

Scleroderma is a chronic autoimmune disease that leads to hardening of connective tissues in the body. Lung fibrosis and disease is one of the leading causes of deaths in patients with scleroderma. Here is the latest research.
