Dietary indices of atherogenicity and thrombogenicity
and ischaemic heart disease risk: the caerphilly prospective study.
Two medical applications derived from liquid repellency of the SLIPS technology include: i) Antifouling: the SLIPS treatment has revealed a superior effect in preventing absorption of proteins and microorganisms than PEGylation, which is a standard antifouling procedure [12,13]; ii) Antithrombotics: the SLIPS treatment has been applied in a variety of medical-grade materials such as polycarbonate and polyvinyl chloride and greatly decreases thrombogenicity
of the individual substrates .
Index (TI) = (C14:0 + C16:0 + C18:0) / [(0.
A driving force for this work is to develop an in vitro alternative to the non-anticoagulated venous implant (NAVI) model--a test frequently called for to assess material thrombogenicity
in medical device regulatory submissions to the FDA (Michael Wolf, Medtronic, unpublished (3)).
early in high-risk interventional settings is driven by stent design and deployment and protected by polymer-drug coatings.
Current evidence indicates that high intake of SFA and trans-fatty acids (TFA) may increase serum total and low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels, reduce insulin sensitivity, enhance thrombogenicity
and increase cardiovascular risk.
The increase in viscosity, polycythemia, and thrombogenicity
can be the cause of myocardial injury, even in the presence of normal coronary arteries (8, 9).
Role of risk factors in the modulation of tissue factor activity and blood thrombogenicity
Besides, anticoagulation should be considered because of the inherent thrombogenicity
from the intravascular alloy.
The authors concluded that "according to thrombogenicity
, RCA is the most effective among compared anticoagulation methods" (p.
Both isoforms have been shown to affect a variety of pathophysiologically relevant functions, such as tumor-associated angiogenesis, thrombogenicity
, tumor growth, and metastasis.
TF is known to be the key element in the initiation of the coagulation cascade and appears to be a critical determinant of atherosclerotic plaque thrombogenicity
