009) and the proximal tibial vein (P = .005) in males than females, while no differences were observed in the clinical manifestations between
the 2 sexes in UEDVT patients. Our study is able to give a broad perspective of the prevalence data of UEDVT and LLDVT in the city of Mumbai of approximately 5 million population served by this hospital. We conclude that the topology of thrombosis in deep vein thrombosis (DVT) patients in India is different from that of the Western countries.”
“Phenol-formaldehyde microcapsules with linseed oil as an active agent were produced by applying Cyclosporin A in situ polymerization method. The anticorrosion and self-healing efficiency of the synthesized materials were studied. Characteristics of these synthesized capsules were studied by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, and surface morphology was analyzed by using scanning electron microscope. Controllable particle size was estimated at different rpm of stirrer and particle size was checked under microscope and also by using particle size analyzer. The anticorrosion performance of encapsulated microcapsules coated with epoxy resin was carried out in 5% NaCl aqueous solution.
The effectiveness of linseed oil filled microcapsules was investigated for healing the cracks generated in paint films or coatings. It was found that the cracks were successfully healed when selleck products LB-100 mouse linseed oil was released from ruptured microcapsules. Further, linseed oil-healed area was found to prevent effectively the corrosion of the substrate in immersion studies. (C) 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 119: 2911-2916, 2011″
“The aim of this study was to detect the prevalence of the polymorphisms of growth arrest-specific gene 6 (Gas6; Gas6 c. 834 vertical bar 7G > A) in patients with sticky platelet syndrome (SPS). Sticky platelet syndrome is a hereditary, autosomal dominant thrombophilia characterized by platelet hyperaggregation after low concentrations of platelet inducers-adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and epinephrine (EPI). The
cause of SPS still remains unknown, but in recent years it was suggested that Gas6 protein may have a potential role in the pathogenesis of SPS. To assess the Gas6 polymorphisms (Gas6 c. 834 + 7G > A), 128 patients with SPS were included in the study and examined by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method. GG genotype was detected in 63 (49.2%) patients, GA genotype in 53 (41.4%) patients, and AA genotype in 12 (9.4%) patients. The results in controls did not differ significantly compared to patients with SPS. Our findings did not prove allele A to be less associated with thrombosis and that “”prothrombotic”" allele G may be associated with higher risk of thrombosis. We cannot support the idea that Gas6 protein and Gas6 polymorphisms may be associated with thrombosis in SPS.
