Since starting its “Education is Power” scholarship program in 2006, MedPro Rx has distributed more than $340,000 to students nationwide who have either hemophilia or von Willebrand Disease
ABBREVIATIONS: ADP = adenosine diphosphate; BSS = Bernard-Soulier syndrome; GP = glycoprotein; GSA = guanidinosuccinic oxide MPDs = myeloproliferative disorders; NO = nitric oxide; NSAIDs = non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; [TXA.sub.2] = thromboxane AZ; VWD = von Willebrand disease
; VWF = von Willebrand factor.
Laboratory testing for von Willebrand disease
: contribution of multimer analysis to diagnosis and classification.
Tests for von Willebrand factor antigen and von Willebrand factor ristocetin cofactor showed normal values, thereby excluding von Willebrand disease
. Therefore, the strikingly impaired factor VIII activity was most likely caused by an acquired factor VIII inhibitor.
Patients with isolated hemophilia A, B, or C (due to deficiencies in factors VIII, IX, and XI, respectively) or factor VIII deficiency due to von Willebrand disease
typically have a prolonged aPTT but a normal PT.
(ACHC), and URAC (In-Process) provider emphasizes treatments for individuals with autoimmune neuromuscular disorders as well as rare bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia and von Willebrand Disease
. The pharmacy has received numerous awards for its success and was recognized with the 2011 No.
Abnormalities in vWF activity, most often related to abnormal concentration or multimer distribution, are the incident cause of the group of coagulopathies known as von Willebrand disease
(vWD) (1, 2).
Defects in the VWF molecule can lead to von Willebrand disease
(VWD), a common bleeding disorder that affects 1% to 3% of the general population.
