Enhanced fibrinolysis caused by tissue plasminogen activator release in hemodialysis

Kidney International
W SpeiserB R Binder


The effect of hemodialysis on components of the fibrinolytic system was measured in 22 patients. Plasma levels of t-PA antigen, t-PA activity, u-PA antigen and plasminogen activator inhibitor were determined by means of immunological and functional assays. During hemodialysis, 11 patients exhibited an increase in t-PA antigen within the first hour to about three times the starting values (P less than 0.05), followed by a decrease to about double of the initial values until the end of the treatment. Eleven patients showed a continuous increase up to 200% of the starting values until the end of hemodialysis. u-PA levels did not change significantly during the time of investigation (P greater than 0.5).

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
