Von willebrand diseases. Medical search
Group of hemorrhagic disorders in which the VON WILLEBRAND FACTOR is either quantitatively or qualitatively abnormal. They are usually inherited as an autosomal dominant trait though rare kindreds are autosomal recessive. Symptoms vary depending on severity and disease type but may include prolonged bleeding time, deficiency of factor VIII, and impaired platelet adhesion.
A high-molecular-weight plasma protein, produced by endothelial cells and megakaryocytes, that is part of the factor VIII/von Willebrand factor complex. The von Willebrand factor has receptors for collagen, platelets, and ristocetin activity as well as the immunologically distinct antigenic determinants. It functions in adhesion of platelets to collagen and hemostatic plug formation. The prolonged bleeding time in VON WILLEBRAND DISEASES is due to the deficiency of this factor.
A subtype of von Willebrand disease that results from qualitative deficiencies of VON WILLEBRAND FACTOR. The subtype is divided into several variants with each variant having a distinctive pattern of PLATELET-interaction.
A subtype of von Willebrand disease that results from a partial deficiency of VON WILLEBRAND FACTOR.
A subtype of von Willebrand disease that results from a total or near total deficiency of VON WILLEBRAND FACTOR.
An antibiotic mixture of two components, A and B, obtained from Nocardia lurida (or the same substance produced by any other means). It is no longer used clinically because of its toxicity. It causes platelet agglutination and blood coagulation and is used to assay those functions in vitro.
Blood-coagulation factor VIII. Antihemophilic factor that is part of the factor VIII/von Willebrand factor complex. Factor VIII is produced in the liver and acts in the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. It serves as a cofactor in factor X activation and this action is markedly enhanced by small amounts of thrombin.
A synthetic analog of the pituitary hormone, ARGININE VASOPRESSIN. Its action is mediated by the VASOPRESSIN receptor V2. It has prolonged antidiuretic activity, but little pressor effects. It also modulates levels of circulating FACTOR VIII and VON WILLEBRAND FACTOR.

Platelet membrane glycoprotein complex essential for normal platelet adhesion and clot formation at sites of vascular injury. It is composed of three polypeptides, GPIb alpha, GPIb beta, and GPIX. Glycoprotein Ib functions as a receptor for von Willebrand factor and for thrombin. Congenital deficiency of the GPIb-IX complex results in Bernard-Soulier syndrome. The platelet glycoprotein GPV associates with GPIb-IX and is also absent in Bernard-Soulier syndrome.

von Willebrand disease with G4022A mutation (vWd Sungnam): a case report. (1/482)

A 10-year-old male patient affected by type 2 von Willebrand disease (vWD) and his family members were investigated by hemostatic and molecular genetic studies. The propositus, who experienced frequent bleeding episodes, was characterized by a normal level of von Willebrand factor (vWF) antigen (54%), reduced vWF ristocetin cofactor activity (5%), decreased factor VIII clotting activity (25%) and absent high molecular weight multimers in the plasma. An exon 28 fragment coding for the A1 and A2 domains was amplified by polymerase chain reaction and sequenced. We found a heterozygous mutation (G4022A), producing an additional PstI restriction site, which resulted in the substitution of Arg578Gln. Family studies, including the parents and a brother, were negative for this mutation and vWF abnormalities were not observed. We confirmed that G to A mutation in the region of the platelet glycoprotein Ib binding domain of vWF causes the qualitative type 2 defect in von Willebrand disease.  (+info)

An acutely painful elbow as a first presentation of von Willebrand's disease. (2/482)

A 26 year old woman presented to the accident and emergency department with a painful right elbow. There had been no history of trauma. Clinical examination suggested an effusion, which was confirmed on radiological examination. Her elbow was aspirated and revealed a haemarthrosis. Subsequent investigations revealed a diagnosis of von Willebrand's disease (vWD). A spontaneously occurring effusion of the elbow may be due to a haemarthrosis. Aspiration of blood in the absence of trauma may lead to a diagnosis of an occult coagulopathy in addition to relieving pain. The diagnosis and treatment of vWD is discussed.  (+info)

Low platelet alpha2beta1 levels in type I von Willebrand disease correlate with impaired platelet function in a high shear stress system. (3/482)

Platelet adhesion to collagen-coated surfaces in whole blood under flow conditions is mediated by both von Willebrand factor (vWF)-dependent recruitment of the platelet glycoprotein Ib-IX receptor complex and collagen interaction with the integrin alpha2beta1. In type 1 von Willebrand disease (vWD), platelet adhesive functions are impaired due to the decrease in vWF levels in plasma and platelets. There are at least three alleles of the human alpha2 gene, distinguishable by a cluster of silent or noncoding sequence differences within a segment of the gene. Two alleles, associated with low receptor density can be distinguished by nucleotide 807C, while the third allele associated with high receptor density, expresses nucleotide 807T. Gene frequencies of these alleles in a normal population (n = 167) are 0.58 for 807C and 0.42 for 807T. We measured the frequencies of these alleles in symptomatic patients with five types of vWD (type 1, n = 78; type 2A, n = 25, type 2B, n = 14; type 2M, n = 10; and type 3, n = 20). Compared with the normal group, no significant difference in allele frequencies was observed among individuals with types 2A, 2B, 2M, or 3 vWD. However, the frequency of the 807C allele, associated with low collagen receptor density, among type 1 vWD patients (807C =.71; 807T =.29) was significantly higher than that of the normal population (P =.007). Also, in patients with vWD type 1 and borderline to normal ristocetin-cofactor (vWF:RCo) activity values, collagen receptor density correlates inversely with closure time in a high shear stress system (platelet function analyzer [PFA-100]). We propose that low platelet alpha2beta1 density results in less efficient primary platelet adhesion and may result in increased tendency to bleed, as evidenced by the high frequency of this polymorphism in patients with type 1 vWD compared with normal individuals. In addition, this may account for the variability between patients with similar levels of vWF antigen, but strikingly different bleeding histories.  (+info)

Plasma von Willebrand factor-collagen binding activity in normal dogs and in dogs with von Willebrand's disease. (4/482)

A sensitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was used for the simultaneous assessment of the amount of von Willebrand factor (vWF) in canine plasma and its ability to bind to canine collagen in vitro. In 60 normal dogs, there was close correlation between the concentration of vWF and its activity as determined by vWF-collagen binding. In 14 dogs with type I expressions of von Willebrand's disease, the ratio of vWF antigen to collagen binding activity was normal or only slightly increased. In 7 dogs with type II expressions of the disease, this ratio was consistently elevated suggesting a significant functional deficiency of the protein. Plasma from 3 dogs with type III von Willebrand's disease had little collagen binding activity because of the severe quantitative deficiency of the protein. The described assay permits the rapid assessment of both the quantity and quality of vWF in a dog. This information is necessary for the detection and characterization of canine von Willebrand's disease, particularly the type II expressions, which cannot be diagnosed by quantitative vWF assays alone.  (+info)

Evidence for extracellular processing of pro-von Willebrand factor after infusion in animals with and without severe von Willebrand disease. (5/482)

Although proteolytic processing of pro-von Willebrand factor (pro-vWF) resulting in free propeptide and mature vWF is known to be initiated intracellularly, vWF released from endothelial cells may contain a high proportion of incompletely processed pro-vWF. Because pro-vWF is only rarely detectable in normal human plasma, we investigated whether extracellular processing of pro-vWF is possible. A recombinant preparation (rpvWF) containing both pro-vWF and mature vWF subunits was infused into 2 pigs and 1 dog with severe von Willebrand disease, 2 mice with a targeted disruption of the vWF gene, and 2 healthy baboons. Total vWF antigen (vWF:Ag), free propeptide, and pro-vWF were measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay techniques in blood samples drawn before and after infusion. vWF:Ag increased promptly. No pro-vWF could be detected when the first postinfusion sample was drawn after 30 minutes (pigs) or 60 minutes (mice), but pro-vWF was detectable for short periods when postinfusion samples were drawn after 15 minutes (dog) or 5 minutes (baboons). In contrast, free propeptide was increased at the first timepoint measured, suggesting that it was generated from the pro-vWF in the rpvWF preparation. vWF multimers were analyzed in the rpvWF preparation and in plasma samples drawn before and after infusion of rpvWF using ultra-high resolution 3% agarose gels to allow separation of homo- and hetero-forms of the vWF polymers. Within 30 minutes after infusion in the pigs, 1 hour in the dog and the mice, and within 2 hours in the baboons, the multimer pattern had changed to that typically seen in mature vWF. These data indicate that propeptide cleavage from unprocessed vWF can occur extracellularly in the circulation. The enzyme or enzymes responsible for this cleavage in plasma remain to be identified.  (+info)

Desmopressin enhances the binding of plasma von Willebrand factor to collagen in plasmas from normal dogs and dogs with type I von Willebrand's disease. (6/482)

A new in vitro von Willebrand factor-collagen binding activity (vWF:CBA) assay was used to assess qualitative changes in vWF in normal dogs and dogs with Type I von Willebrand's disease (vWD) following treatment with desmopressin acetate (DDAVP). Although DDAVP induced increases in vWF antigen concentrations at 1 hour postinfusion in both normal and vWD dogs (57% and 60% increases, respectively), there were disproportionately greater increases in vWF:CBA (96% and 103% increases). These results support the hypothesis that the enhanced hemostatic activity induced by DDAVP is, at least in part, due to the selective release of more functionally active vWF multimers. The assay, as described, provides a convenient means of simultaneously assessing vWF quantity and function before and after DDAVP administration.  (+info)

Involvement of low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein (LRP) in the clearance of factor VIII in von Willebrand factor-deficient mice. (7/482)

Factor VIII is tightly noncovalently linked to von Willebrand factor (vWF) in plasma with a stoichiometry of 1:50, and vWF deficiency results in secondary factor VIII deficiency, with accelerated clearance of factor VIII from the circulation. We used a murine model of severe von Willebrand disease (vWF knockout mice) to study the effect of a recombinant vWF/pro-vWF preparation (rpvWF) on factor VIII survival and to investigate whether low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein (LRP) might be involved in the in vivo clearance of factor VIII in the absence of vWF. vWF-deficient mice received 70 U/kg rpvWF in the first series of experiments, and in a second series, 80 mg/kg receptor-associated protein (RAP) as a recombinant fusion protein to block the action of LRP. Factor VIII levels were measured at time 0, or 1 or 3 hours after administration of rpvWF or RAP. RAP induced a sustained rise in factor VIII levels comparable to that induced by rpvWF. In a third series, the preadministration of RAP resulted in a slower disappearance of factor VIII antigen (measured by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay specific for human factor VIII) after infusion of recombinant factor VIII. These findings suggest that the accelerated clearance of factor VIII seen in the absence of vWF may be a result of the involvement of LRP in factor VIII metabolism.

Two novel type 2N von Willebrand disease-causing mutations that result in defective factor VIII binding, multimerization, and secretion of von Willebrand factor. (8/482)

Two novel mutations, a T-to-C transition at nucleotide 2612 and a T-to-G transversion at nucleotide 3923 of the von Willebrand factor (vWF) complementary DNA, were detected by analysis of the vWF gene in DNA from members of 2 families with atypical von Willebrand disease. The T2612C transition predicts substitution of cysteine by arginine at amino acid position 788 (C788R), and the T3923G transversion predicts substitution of cysteine by glycine at position 1225 (C1225G) of pre-pro-vWF. The patients homozygous for the C788R and C1225G mutations both had a partial vWF deficiency (0. 18 IU/mL and 0.07 IU/mL vWF antigen, respectively); vWF in plasma from patients homozygous for either the C788R or the C1225G mutation failed to bind factor VIII and lacked high molecular weight multimers. Recombinant (r) vWF molecules having the C788R or C1225G mutation were expressed in COS-7 cells. Both rvWF C788R and rvWF C1225G exhibited significantly impaired secretion and failed to bind factor VIII. Recombinant vWF C788R in COS-7 culture medium showed a severe reduction in high molecular weight multimers, whereas rvWF C1225G showed a very mild reduction in high molecular weight multimers when compared with wild-type rvWF.

Recently, several von Willebrand factor gene mutations resulting in type IIA von Willebrands disease have been reported. We examined 8 patients from Sweden and Denmark with this phenotype and found two new candidate mutations and a hitherto unknown amino acid polymorphism. One patient had a de novo occurring mutation resulting in substitution of glycine for arginine 834. Previous reports have demonstrated conversion of arginine 834 to tryptophan or glutamine in IIA patients. A 2nd patient had a G(4825)--|A transition, substituting arginine for glycine 846. The transition produces a sequence congruent with that of the pseudogene but several lines of evidence indicate that a sequencing error due to influence by the latter could be excluded. The remaining 6 patients had one of the earlier described substitution mutations: Ser743--|Leu and Ile865--|Thr. In addition, two sequence variations not linked to the phenotype were found, namely Tyr821--|Cys and Val802--|Leu.
Patients with acquired von Willebrand disease may present with severe bleeding, which is usually difficult to manage. Adequate haemostasis in acquired von Willebrand disease may be achieved with the infusion of factor VIII/von Willebrand factor concentrates or with the administration of desmopressin. We report a case of acquired von Willebrand disease with severe postoperative bleeding, responding poorly to classical von Willebrand factor replacement therapy but successfully treated with high-dose intravenous gammaglobulins. This new treatment mode of acquired von Willebrand disease is discussed in the light of a critical analysis of the literature.. ...

VWF_HUMAN] Defects in VWF are the cause of von Willebrand disease type 1 (VWD1) [MIM:193400]. A common hemorrhagic disorder due to defects in von Willebrand factor protein and resulting in impaired platelet aggregation. Von Willebrand disease type 1 is characterized by partial quantitative deficiency of circulating von Willebrand factor, that is otherwise structurally and functionally normal. Clinical manifestations are mucocutaneous bleeding, such as epistaxis and menorrhagia, and prolonged bleeding after surgery or trauma.[1] [2] Defects in VWF are the cause of von Willebrand disease type 2 (VWD2) [MIM:613554]. A hemorrhagic disorder due to defects in von Willebrand factor protein and resulting in impaired platelet aggregation. Von Willebrand disease type 2 is characterized by qualitative deficiency and functional anomalies of von Willebrand factor. It is divided in different subtypes including 2A, 2B, 2M and 2N (Normandy variant). The mutant VWF protein in types 2A, 2B and 2M are defective in ...
Some people with more serious vWD may need to take medicines. The most common medicine for type 1 von Willebrand disease is called desmopressin. It causes a temporary increase in the von Willebrand factor level in the blood. It can be given in two ways: by injection or by being sniffed into the nose. Desmopressin may also help some people with type 2 von Willebrand disease.. People with type 3 (and some with type 2) disease need a medicine called Humate-P. It contains both factor VIII and von Willebrand factor. Humate-P is injected into a vein. Patients with type 1 also might need a shot of Humate-P in certain situations, like after major surgery or a serious accident.. Other medicines, like Amicar, control bleeding by keeping blood clots from breaking down too quickly.. Most of the time, people with von Willebrand disease can do everything their friends do. Speaking of friends, if you have vWD, it doesnt hurt to let the people in your life (like friends, teammates, or coaches) know that you ...
Because of menorrhagia, a 13-year-old girl was found to have type I von Willebrand disease and then chronic autoimmune thyroiditis with hypothyroidism. All clinical and laboratory evidence of von Willebrand disease resolved transiently after infusion of desmopressin, and permanently with L-thyroxine …
Missense mutations in the von Willebrand factor (VWF) gene impairing the binding to factor VIII (FVIII) do not impair the structure of VWF multimers nor the ability of VWF to aggregate platelets but causes an accelerated clearance of FVIII. Recessive VWD type Normandy (N) encompasses all patients with a deficiency in FVIII:coagulant activity (C) caused by a markedly decreased affinity of VWF for FVIII:C due to a FVIII binding defect in VWF but with normal or near normal VWF:antigen (Ag), VWF:ristocetin cofactor activity (RCo) and VWF:collagen binding (CB) levels, normal VWF:RCo/VWF:Ag ratio, normal VWF multimeric pattern and normal VWF-dependent platelet functions including ristocetin-induced platelet aggregation and bleeding time (BT) consistent with VWD type 1. The response to 1-deamino-8-D-arginine vasopressin (DDAVP) of VWF parameters is usually normal, but the degree of restricted response curves to DDAVP of FVIII:C depends on the severity of the FVIII binding defect to the mutated VWF. The ...

As mentioned in a previous post, I suffer from Von Willebrand disease.. When I was younger, I used to get awful nose bleeds- I mean 20 minutes to a half an hour long. Finally, one day when I was about five or six, I blew my nose during an episode and a blood clot the size of a half dollar came out of my little nose at the time- so my mom called the doctor.. The doctor referred me to a specialist who could figure out what was wrong with me. My mom was worried I was suffering from hemophilia- which we later found out I thankfully wasnt.. When we found out I have Von Willebrand disease, I was too young to understand all of the technical terms. My mom told me my blood needed paper and glue to come together, stick and make a clot, but I was missing the glue. To this day, its very complicated to understand any other way.. Since we discovered my disease, I was prescribed a nose spray to use during a bloody nose episode. This spray would make the bleeding clot and stop much quicker.. As the years ...

When people have von Willebrand disease, their blood doesnt clot properly. Cuts and wounds cant scab over as well and they might bleed longer than normal. Find out more about von Willebrand disease in this article for teens.
A 16-year-old boy had IIB von Willebrands disease. The disorder is characterized by prolonged bleeding times; normal plasma levels of factor VIII-coagulant activity, factor VIII-ristocetin cofactor activity, and factor VIII-related antigen; abnormal (anodal) mobility of plasma factor VIII-related antigen on two-dimensional crossed Immunoelectrophoresis; and enhanced binding of plasma factor VIII-related antigen to normal platelets in the presence of ristocetin. These variables were measured at time periods after an infusion of normal cryoprecipitate into the patient. The electrophoretic mobility of his plasma factor VIII-related antigen was normal 15 minutes after the infusion but became abnormal (anodal) by 4 hours. His bleeding times were normal after 24 hours and did not correlate with plasma levels of factor VIII-coagulant activity, factor VIII-ristocetin cofactor, factor VIII-related antigen, or the electrophoretic mobility of his plasma factor VIII-related antigen. These results imply ...

We have reported that pigs with severe homozygous von Willebrand disease (vWd) are resistant to spontaneous and high fat, high cholesterol, diet-induced atherosclerosis. In this study we report the quantitation of aortic atherosclerotic plaques in three groups of pigs fed with a high fat, high cholesterol (2%) diet from age 3 to 9 months. Nine normal pigs (normal factor VIII antigen, VIII R:AG, and ristocetin co-factor, VIII:RWF) had a mean of 21% atherosclerotic involvement of the distal aortic surface and a 4.5% mean involvement of the entire aorta. Five homozygous vWd pigs (undetected VIII R:AG and VIII:RWF) had a mean of 4.2% atherosclerotic involvement of the distal aortic surface and 1.2% involvement of the entire aorta (p less than 0.01, rank sum test). Five heterozygous vWd pigs (approximately 35% VIII R:AG and VIII:RWF) had a mean of 25% atherosclerotic involvement of the distal aortic surface and 6% involvement of the entire aorta; the results were not significantly different from ...

VWD is caused by a deficiency or dysfunction of von Willebrand factor (VWF), a plasma protein that mediates the initial adhesion of platelets at sites of vascular injury and binds and stabilises coagulation factor VIII (FVIII) in the blood. Prophylaxis of surgical bleeding in patients with VWD requires consideration of the individual situation, including the type of procedure and the bleeding rate, before decisions about treatment type, dose, duration and adjunctive therapy with antifibrinolytics or antithrombotic prophylaxis can be made. Although desmopressin (DDAVP)-stimulated release of endogenous VWD is an effective treatment strategy in many patients, plasma concentrates containing VWF are the preferred option for most patients undergoing surgical procedures. Recommendations for the management of surgery in patients with VWD are summarised, including the ...
SUMMARY von Willebrand factor (VWF) is a central component of hemostasis, serving both as an adhesive link between platelets and the injured blood vessel wall and as a carrier for clotting factor VIII (FVIII). Abnormalities in VWF function result in von Willebrand disease (VWD), the most common inherited bleeding disorder in humans. The overall prevalence of VWD has been estimated to be as high as 1 percent of the general population, although the prevalence of clinically significant disease is probably closer to 1:1000. VWD is associated with either quantitative deficiency (type 1 and type 3) or qualitative abnormalities of VWF (type 2). The uncommon type 3 variant is the most severe form of VWD and is characterized by very low or undetectable levels of VWF, a severe bleeding diathesis, and a generally autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance. Type 1 VWD, the most common variant, is characterized by VWF that is normal in structure and function but decreased in quantity (in the range of 20 to ...
Management of Heyde syndrome often requires a multidisciplinary approach, and treatment options include medical therapy, endoscopic interventions, colon surgery and aortic valve replacement.3 Treatment modalities used in von Willebrand disease (e.g., desmopressin, octreotide or supplementation of factor VIII or von Willebrand factor) are usually insufficient or ineffective for acquired type IIA von Willebrand syndrome.2-4 Administration of von Willebrand factor-factor VIII concentrate immediately before surgery should be considered for patients who have transient improvement in von Willebrand factor activity with a test dose (see references listed in Appendix 1). Some experts suggest the use of estrogen-progesterone preparations; however, the mechanism of action of such treatment is still unknown.3,4 Thalidomide has been shown to reduce the incidence of severe gastrointestinal bleeding in several studies.3 Repeated blood transfusions may offer some, though transient, symptomatic relief..

Von Willebrand disease (vWD) is a common, inherited, genetically and clinically heterogeneous hemorrhagic disorder caused by a deficiency or dysfunction of the protein termed von Willebrand factor (vWF). Consequently, defective vWF interaction between platelets and the vessel wall impairs primary hemostasis.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Unlike patients with hemophilia, those with von Willebrands disease (VWD) have a mild to moderate bleeding tendency requiring a lower rate of transfusion: moreover, the use of blood products in most Italian patients with VWD was greatly reduced following the introduction of desmopressin in 1977. The main objective of this study was to compare the prevalence and outcome of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in multi-transfused patients with VWD and in those with hemophilia A or B. DESIGN AND METHODS: In a large cohort of 356 patients with VWD (41% type 1, 53% type 2 and 6% type 3) and 340 with hemophilia A (85%) or B (15%), all of whom were negative for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) serum HCV markers, liver function tests and abdominal ultrasound were performed every 6 months for 6 years. RESULTS: VWD patients were less often transfused with any type of blood products than were hemophiliacs (40% versus 96%) and were, therefore, less frequently infected with HCV ...
In mild cases of Von Willebrand disease, pharmacological treatment may not be necessary as small lifestyle changes may be sufficient to avoid situations that lead to bleeding or bruising.. In more severe cases, significant lifestyle changes may be necessary. If bleeding poses a serious risk, contact sports and other situations that may result in injuries should be avoided.. The first-line treatment in desmopressin, which is available as a nasal spray or injection. Side effects may include facial flushing, palpitations, hypotension, headache and fluid retention.. Alternative treatments include tranexamic acid, which is available as an oral dose or as an injection, and Von Willebrand factor concentration. This is the factor purified from donated blood that is administered intravenously to provide and immediate effect.. Some medications may worsen symptoms as they reduce the bloods ability to clot even further, including common non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) like ibuprofen and ...

Acquired von Willebrand syndrome (avWS) has gained more attention during the last years. An International Registry has been compared with the literature. It could be shown that the data collected from 123 publications compared well with the data from the registry, albeit with differences in the number of patients suffering from lymphoproliferative diseases and cardiovascular disorders, that were more prominent in the registry and the group of miscellaneous conditions underrepresented in the registry. Our data are clearly different for the lymphoproliferative diseases with only four patients in 2 years. These patients usually suffer from severe bleeding complications together with low to very low factor VIII/von Willebrand factor (FVIII/vWF) concentrations and thus will not go undiagnosed. In contrast to this, patients with cardiovascular disorders usually bleed only during surgical procedures or catheter procedures. At that time they have increased vWF parameters. Because of this and because the ...

Von Willebrand disease 2 (VWD2) [MIM:613554]: A hemorrhagic disorder due to defects in von Willebrand factor protein and resulting in altered platelet aggregation. Von Willebrand disease type 2 is characterized by qualitative deficiency and functional anomalies of von Willebrand factor. It is divided in different subtypes including 2A, 2B, 2M and 2N (Normandy variant). The mutant VWF protein in types 2A, 2B and 2M are defective in their platelet-dependent function, whereas the mutant protein in type 2N is defective in its ability to bind factor VIII. Clinical manifestations are mucocutaneous bleeding, such as epistaxis and menorrhagia, and prolonged bleeding after surgery or trauma. {ECO:0000269,PubMed:12406074, ECO:0000269,PubMed:1409710, ECO:0000269,PubMed:1419803, ECO:0000269,PubMed:1419804, ECO:0000269,PubMed:1420817, ECO:0000269,PubMed:1429668, ECO:0000269,PubMed:1672694, ECO:0000269,PubMed:1673047, ECO:0000269,PubMed:1729889, ECO:0000269,PubMed:1761120, ECO:0000269,PubMed:1832934, ...

Abstract: von Willebrand disease is a common inherited bleeding disorder characterized by excessive mucocutaneous bleeding. Characteristic bleeding symptoms include epistaxis, easy bruising, oral cavity bleeding, menorrhagia, bleeding after dental extraction, surgery, and/or childbirth, and in severe cases, bleeding into joints and soft tissues. There are three subtypes: types 1 and 3 represent quantitative variants and type 2 is a group of four qualitative variants: (1) type 2A-characterized by defective von Willebrand factor-dependent platelet adhesion because of decreased high-molecular-weight von Willebrand factor multimers, (2) type 2B-caused by pathologically increased von Willebrand factor-platelet interactions, (3) type 2M-caused by decreased von Willebrand factor-platelet interactions not based on the loss of high-molecular-weight multimers, and (4) type 2N-characterized by reduced binding of von Willebrand factor to factor VIII. The diagnosis of von Willebrand disease requires specialized
von Willebrand factor (VWF) is a multimeric adhesive glycoprotein that is important for platelet-platelet and platelet-vessel hemostatic interactions. In addition, plasma VWF serves as a carrier protein for coagulation factor VIII, stabilizing its procoagulant activity. VWF circulates in the blood in 2 distinct compartments, plasma VWF and platelet VWF. Plasma VWF mainly reflects VWF synthesis and release from vascular endothelial cells. Platelet VWF (about 10% of the blood VWF) reflects VWF synthesis by bone marrow megakaryocytes with storage primarily in the alpha granules of circulating platelets. VWF antigen measurement assesses the mass of plasma VWF protein, but does not measure platelet VWF protein. The major function of VWF (mediating platelet-platelet or platelet-vessel interaction) is most commonly assessed by measurement of plasma VWF activity.. Patients with congenital severe type 3 von Willebrand disease (VWD) have markedly decreased or immeasurably low VWF antigen in the plasma ...

Objective: In order to correct the primary von Willebrand factor (VWF) defect and avoid supra-physiologic plasma levels of factor VIII, a pure VWF concentrate almost devoid of FVIII was developed and used in France since 1989. Methods: The pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of the most recent version of this concentrate (Wilfactin®; LFB, Les Ulis, France), treated with three virus-inactivation/removal methods (solvent/detergent, 35 nm filtration, dry heat treatment), was investigated in 25 patients. Seventeen patients with various types of clinically severe von Willebrand disease (VWD) were included in a crossover, randomized trial carried out in five European centers and comparing Wilfactin® with concentrates containing both FVIII and VWF (FVIII/VWF). Eight type 3 VWD patients were included in another trial carried out in six French centers comparing Wilfactin® with its previous version (Facteur Willebrand-LFB®; LFB) that adopted one virus-inactivation method only. Results: For both the ...
Background: von Willebrand disease (VWD), the most common inherited bleeding disorder, is caused by deficiencies and/or defects in von Willebrand factor (VWF). An effective diagnostic and VWD typing strategy requires plasma testing for factor VIII, and VWF antigen plus one or moreVWFactivity assays. VWFactivity is classically assessed by using VWF ristocetin cofactor activity (VWF:RCo), although VWF collagen-binding (VWF:CB) and VWF mAbbased (VWF activity [VWF:Act]) assays are used by some laboratories. Objective: To perform a cross-laboratory study to specifically evaluate these three VWF activity assays for comparative sensitivity to loss of high molecular weight (HMW) VWF, representing the form of VWF that is most functionally active and that is absent in some types of VWD, namely 2A and 2B. Methods: A set of eight samples, including six selectively representing stepwise reduction in HMW VWF, were tested by 51 different laboratories using a variety of assays. Results: The combined data ...

vWF Assay Measurement. The diagnosis of von Willebrand Disease (VWD), probably the most common congenital bleeding disorder, requires a number of special tests at the laboratory level. The measurement and comparison of von Willebrand Factor Antigen (VWF:Ag), VWF Activity and Factor VIII (FVIII) levels in plasma aid in the differentiation of quantitative defects (type 1 or type 3) or qualitative defect (type 2) of VWF and therefore to diagnose the different types of VWD.. When an extremely low or undetectable level of VWF:Ag is obtained, a type 3 VWD could be expected. If a moderate or even normal result is obtained, VWF Activity and FVIII assays must be performed and compared with the VWF:Ag result. If all three values are within the normal range, VWD and Hemophilia A may be excluded. If at least one parameter is abnormally low, it is necessary to calculate the ratios VWF Activity/VWF:Ag and FVIII/VWF:Ag. If both ratios are close to 1 (some authors suggest 0.7 as cut-off), a VWD type 1 may be ...

Over the past 25 years, substantial progress has been made in the diagnosis and characterization of VWD, thanks mainly to advances in the genetic and molecular analysis of this common disease.2 However, understanding of the cellular defects of VWD has lagged behind because of the complexity of accessing the relevant cells from patients and the difficulties in establishing reliable in vitro models. Here we demonstrate that the study of ECs, the main source of plasma VWF,26 from patients with VWD, provides novel, important information on the pathogenesis of VWD and opens a new phase in the understanding of this complex disease.. BOECs (also called late outgrowth endothelial progenitor cells or endothelial colony-forming cells) are bone marrow-derived stem cells that have the ability to differentiate into mature ECs27 and have been implicated in postnatal vasculogenesis and endothelial repair at sites of endothelial damage.28 We have previously isolated BOECs from VWD patients5 and patients with ...

Von Willebrand Disease. Von Willebrand Disease (vWD) is the most commonly inherited bleeding disorder in American women.1 It is the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologys position that every woman with menorrhagia should have vWD worked up as part of a differential diagnosis.1. Von Willebrand Factor (vWF) is an adhesive protein stored in the cytoplasmic organelles in endothelium platelets. vWF is released from these stores in response to a stimulus. Its function is to mediate platelet adhesion to damaged vessel walls, induce platelet aggregation, and serve as a carrier protein for Factor VIII. Individuals with vWD are deficient in vWF, hence require more time to form clots and stop bleeding.. Women with vWD are at high risk for post-partum hemorrhage 5 to 14 days post-partum. This is because vWF naturally falls post-partum. Some other activities that affect vWF and Factor VIII include stress, exercise, hormones, and phase of the menstrual cycle. The use of oral contraceptives can ...
A von Willebrand factor (vWF) activity - ristocetin cofactor test lets doctors evaluate the functioning of the protein vWF, which helps blood to clot. A clot is a lump of blood that the body produces to prevent excessive bleeding by sealing leaks from blood vessels caused by wounds, cuts, scratches, or other conditions.. The bloods ability to clot is a complex process involving platelets (also called thrombocytes) and proteins called clotting factors. Platelets are oval-shaped cells made in the bone marrow. Most clotting factors are made in the liver. Some, like vWF, are made in blood vessel walls.. When a blood vessel breaks, platelets are first to the area to help seal the leak and temporarily stop or slow bleeding. But for the clot to become strong and stable, the action of clotting factors is required.. The bodys clotting factors are numbered using the Roman numerals I through XII. They work together in a specialized sequence, almost like pieces of a puzzle. When the last piece is in ...
Treatment for VWD depends on the diagnosis and severity. The mainstay of treatment is DDAVP (desmopressin acetate), the synthetic version of a natural hormone vasopressin,. It stimulates the release of VWF from cells, which also increases FVIII.DDAVP comes in two forms: injectable and nasal spray. Because DDAVP is an antidiuretic, causing the body to retain water, fluid restrictions are important so patients dont develop hyponatremia, reduced sodium in the bloodstream.. There are a few clotting factor concentrates that are rich in VWF, and are recommended for patients with VWD. These therapies are given by intravenous infusion. In December 2015, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Baxaltas Vonvendi®, the first recombinant VWF product. Unlike other products, it contains VWF only, not VWF and factor VIII. It is approved to treat on-demand and for control of bleeding in adults 18 and older.. Aminocaproic acid and tranexamic acid are antifibrinolytics agents that prevent the ...
A person with von Willebrand Disease (VWD) or a platelet disorder will have trouble making a platelet plug. Some people with von Willebrand Disease (VWD) also have trouble making a fibrin clot because they dont have enough factor VIII. Without a platelet plug, blood will continue to leak from an injured blood vessel. In time, the body can make a fibrin clot to stop the bleeding but it will not be as strong as a clot that had a good platelet plug.. If a persons platelets have trouble sticking to the wall of an injured blood vessel, he or she has an adhesion disorder. If the platelets dont stick well to each other, it is an aggregation disorder. If the platelets dont release the chemicals that signal other platelets to join in making the plug, it is a secretion disorder. The platelet disorders described in The Handbook are listed below.. ...
History of the Project. During the spring of 2004, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) began planning for the development of clinical practice guidelines for VWD in response to the FY 2004 appropriations conference committee report (House Report 108-401) recommendation. In that report, the conferees urged NHLBI to develop a set of treatment guidelines for VWD and to work with medical associations and experts in the field when developing such guidelines.. In consultation with the American Society of Hematology (ASH), the Institute convened an Expert Panel on VWD, chaired by Dr. William Nichols of the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. The Expert Panel members were selected to provide expertise in basic sciences, clinical and laboratory diagnosis, evidence-based medicine, and the clinical management of VWD, including specialists in hematology as well as in family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, internal medicine, and laboratory sciences. The Expert Panel comprised 1 ...

Prediction of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) may offer great benefits for patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). Von Willebrand factor (vWF) is stored in endothelial cells and released into blood plasma upon vascular dysfunction. This meta-analysis was performed to evaluate the prognostic value of plasma vWF levels in CAD patients with MACEs. A total of 15 studies were included in this meta-analysis through the search in PubMed, Embase and CNKI. Data were collected from 960 patients who had MACEs after CAD and 3224 controls nested without the adverse events. The standard mean difference (SMD) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) were calculated using random-effects model. The plasma vWF levels examined at 24 h and 48 h after admission were significantly higher in CAD patients with MACEs than those without. The pooled SMD among the MACEs group and the non-MACEs group was 0.55 (95% CI = 0.30-0.80, P | 0.0001) and 0.70 (95% CI = 0.27-1.13, P = 0.001), respectively. However, no

Id like to go under the assumption that most of you know what Von Willebrands Disease is, but I realize that I wasnt very educated about it until recently and some of you reading this might not have VWD. VWD is a bleeding disorder with 3 types caused by a lack of the Von Willebrand Factor in your blood. The factor helps clot your blood and also carries factor 8 through your blood. In type 1, you simply dont have enough of it. In type 2, you also dont have enough of it, but there are several sub-types of type 2. I would try to further explain type 2, but it is highly complicated and given that I have type 1, I dont fully understand it. Type 3 is the most severe type of VWD, in this case, you do not have any of the Von Willebrand factor circulating through your blood. It is very rare to have type 3 because both of your parents must have VWD, of any type, in order for you to have type 3. And even if both of your parents have VWD, it doesnt mean youll end up with type 3 or VWD at all ...
This gene encodes a glycoprotein involved in hemostasis. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed following assembly into large multimeric complexes. These complexes function in the adhesion of platelets to sites of vascular injury and the transport of various proteins in the blood. Mutations in this gene result in von Willebrand disease, an inherited bleeding disorder. An unprocessed pseudogene has been found on chromosome 22. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2015 ...
Desmopressin. This medication is available as an injection (DDAVP) or nasal spray (Stimate). Its a synthetic hormone, similar to the natural hormone vasopressin. It controls bleeding by stimulating your body to release more von Willebrand factor already stored in the lining of your blood vessels. DDAVP is usually effective in people with type 1 and some subtypes of type 2 disease. Many doctors consider DDAVP the first treatment to use in the management of von Willebrand disease. Some women use the nasal spray (Stimate) at the beginning of their menstrual periods to control excessive bleeding. It can also be effective when used before a minor surgical procedure.. ...
Von Willebrand factor (vWF) is one of several proteins in the bodys blood clotting system that work together, and in sequence, to stop bleeding. Von Willebrand factor tests help investigate excessive bleeding.

There are several congenital diseases and conditions to which French Bulldogs are susceptible, although they are still considered among the healthiest of the Bull Breeds. Frenchies can suffer from Von Willebrands disease (VWD), a bleeding disorder that is also found in humans and is similar to Hemophilia, which can impede their clotting. In conjunction to this, French Bulldogs may also suffer from thyroid condition. Many breeders follow a program of testing younger dogs for VWD, and only testing for thyroid at that time if the VWD factor is low. In this program, the breeder tests thyroid again just prior to using the dog for breeding. Other breeders test both VWD and thyroid at the same time. French Bulldogs suffer from Brachycephalic syndrome, which is what creates the flat faced appearance of the Frenchie. As a result, one of the most common defects in French Bulldogs is an elongated soft palate or cleft palete. Puppies affected with cleft palate are generally put down at birth, as it is ...
Menorrhagia is a term for excessive blood loss due to heavy menstrual bleeding or an extended menstrual period. Decline in hormones, especially progesterone, as a woman nears menopause, is the most common cause of menorrhagia. It is important to get a proper diagnosis before attempting to use natural medicine because you must determine whether the condition is caused by hormone changes, fibroids, polyps, endometriosis, or tumors. Another cause is von Willebrand disease, a membrane bleeding disorder affecting an estimated 1% of the population worldwide (Lusher, 1999).. All the above problems need to be treated separately, as in the case of another specific cause-low levels of vitamin A. In a South African study, researchers found a statistically significant difference between the fasting serum vitamin A values of healthy controls and patients with menorrhagia. Furthermore, vitamin A therapy alleviated menorrhagia in 92% of these patients (Lithgow and Politzer, 1977).. After assessment and ...
A carrier is a female who has the genetic mutation for hemophilia on one of her X chromosomes. Carriers with clotting factors levels of less than 50% of normal may have symptoms similar to a male with mild hemophilia. They are often called symptomatic carriers or are diagnosed with mild hemophilia. Approximately one-third of carriers experience bleeding symptoms. By definition, if a woman has clotting factor levels less than 50%, she has mild hemophilia.. Von Willebrand Disease (vWD), the most common inherited bleeding disorder in the US, and is a cause of heavy menstrual bleeding and other bleeding problems in women and adolescent girls. Women can also have other rare blood disorders like factor deficiencies I, II, V, VII, X, XI, XII, XIII and types of platelet disorders.. Bleeding disorders among females may cause special challenges because of the bleeding associated with menstruation and childbirth. Menorrhagia is abnormally heavy and prolonged menstrual period and is the most common symptom ...

Seven Queens University professors were named among the newest fellows of the Royal Society of Canada (RSC) today, more than in any other single year. It is remarkable in a university of our medium size to have seven distinguished faculty members elected to the Royal Society of Canada in one year. Each of these individuals has made important contributions to their fields, and I congratulate them on this well-deserved honour, says Principal Daniel Woolf, who currently serves on the RSC Executive Committee. Moreover, fellowship in the three academies of the RSC is a much more meaningful and enduring measure of Queens Universitys individual and collective achievements in research than are rankings exercises, which are too easily distorted by size of institution. David Lillicrap (Pathology and Molecular Medicine) is an internationally-renowned researcher focused on the genetic basis of hemophilia and von Willebrand disease (VWD). His work has led to innovative strategies for the diagnosis and ...
Bleeding disorders are a group of disorders that share the inability to form a proper blood clot. They are characterized by extended bleeding after injury, surgery, trauma or menstruation. Sometimes the bleeding is spontaneous, without a known or identifiable cause. Improper clotting can be caused by defects in blood components such as platelets and/or clotting proteins, also called clotting factors.. Hemophilia occurs predominately in males, but can occur in women. In about one-third of cases the disorder results from a spontaneous genetic mutation rather than by a family history of hemophilia. Hemophilia treatment may require life-long infusion of clotting factor based on the severity of the disorder. Average hemophilia treatment costs between $60,000 and $260,000 per year. Early recognition and prompt treatment of bleeds can help keep these costs down as well as reduce disability.. von Willebrand Disease is a bleeding disorder caused by a defect or deficiency of a blood clotting protein, ...

The first presentation was part of the nursing preconference session and included clinical and laboratory evaluation of inherited platelet disorders. Unlike hemophilia, diagnosing inherited platelet disorders can be a complex process, including careful review of the patient and familys medical history, physical exam and laboratory testing. It is often frustrating for families as lab testing is very expensive and may require repeated lab draws, based on the results of previous tests. As medical science knowledge grows, the best strategies for diagnosing platelet disorders will likely change. Increasingly, we are understanding the platelet disorders are a very heterogeneous group, meaning that we are finding more and more types of platelet disorders. For example, platelet dense granuole deficiencies may be as common as von Willebrand Disease! We are also recognizing the need for newer tests that would automate and standardize testing for greater accessibility and reliability. For patients, the ...
Background The vascular type represents a very rare, yet the clinically most fatal entity of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS). Patients are often admitted due to arterial bleedings and the friable tissue and the altered coagulation contribute to the challenge in treatment strategies. Until now there is little information about clotting characteristics that might influence hemostasis decisively and eventually worsen emergency situations. Results 22 vascular type EDS patients were studied for hemoglobin, platelet volume and count, Quick and activated partial thromboplastin time, fibrinogen, factor XIII, von Willebrand disease, vitamin D and platelet aggregation by modern standard laboratory methods. Results show a high prevalence of over 50 % for platelet aggregation disorders in vascular type EDS patients, especially for collagen and epinephrine induced tests, whereas the plasmatic cascade did not show any alterations. Additionally, more than half of the tested subjects showed low vitamin D serum ...
