Global Hemophilia Market Report: 2013 Edition research studies the hemophilia market on a global scale and its various segments. Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) September 24, 2013 The key trends observed within the global hemophilia market include inclination towards prophylaxis, long-acting factor VIII and IX development and growing penetration of rFVIII products in emerging markets which is a opportunity for manufacturers. On the development front, there has been an increase in the launch of new...

A new finding could lead to novel treatments to reduce bleeding in trauma and severe infections. The research, from Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation scientists Lijun Xia, M.D., Ph.D., Jianxin Fu, M.D., Ph.D., and Brett Herzog, Ph.D., appears in the most recent issue of the journal Nature. One way the immune system keeps a body healthy is through immune surveillance. Lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell, constantly exit the bloodstream and "check in" at the lymph nodes to learn...

Fifteen years ago, a hematologist came to Dianna Milewicz, M.D., Ph.D., with a puzzle: Multiple generations of an East Texas family suffered from a moderately severe bleeding disorder, but it wasn’t hemophilia. “No surgeon would do elective surgery because they bled too much after surgery,” said Milewicz, professor and director of the Division of Medical Genetics at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). “So we collected DNA and plasma from the family...

Prothrombin complex concentrates (PCCs) are faster and more effective than fresh frozen plasma at reversing hemorrhage caused by the anti-coagulant warfarin, despite plasma being the most commonly used therapy.  A literature review published last month in Annals of Emergency Medicine suggests that physicians in the United States should join those around the world in following recommendations of multiple specialty organizations to use PCCs as the first line of defense in this...

Blood Clotting With Gold Nanoparticles
2013-07-26 10:23:00

Rebekah Eliason for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online MIT researchers have developed an exciting new use for gold nanoparticles. Controlled by an infrared laser, the particles can be used to turn blood clotting on and off. This could be especially useful to doctors who are trying to control clotting during surgery and could promote faster, safer healing after surgery. Using blood thinners is the only way doctors can currently control the body's natural clotting mechanism. This is...

Selective release of DNA from gold nanorods switches blood clotting on and off Researchers have designed tiny, light-controlled gold particles that can release DNA controls to switch blood clotting off and on. The results are reported July 24 in the open access journal PLOS ONE by Kimberly Hamad-Schifferli and colleagues from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The two-way switch for blood clotting relies on the ability of two gold nanoparticles to selectively release different...
