Abstract [en]

Essential thrombocythemia (ET) is characterized by high platelet counts and a slightly increased bleeding risk. Why severe hemorrhage does not occur more frequently is not known. Variations of platelet density (kg/l) depend mainly on cell organelle content in that high-density platelets contain more alpha and dense granules. This study compares ET patients (n = 2) and healthy volunteers (n = 2) with respect to platelet density subpopulations. A linear Percoll gradient containing prostaglandin E(1) was employed to separate platelets according to density. The platelet population was subsequently divided by density into 16 or 17 subpopulations. Determination of platelet counts was carried out. In each density fraction, platelet in vivo activity, i.e. platelet-bound fibrinogen, was measured using a flow cytometer. To further characterize platelet subpopulations, we determined intracellular concentrations of CD40 ligand (CD40L) and P-selectin in all fractions. Patients and controls demonstrated similar density distributions, i.e. 1 density peak. High-density platelets had more surface-bound fibrinogen in conjunction with signs of platelet release reactions, i.e. with few exceptions they contained less CD40L and P-selectin. Peak density platelets showed less surface-bound fibrinogen. These platelets contained less CD40L and P-selectin than nearby denser populations. The light platelets had more surface-bound fibrinogen than peak platelets together with elevated concentrations of CD40L. In ET, the malignant platelet production could exist together with platelets originating from normal megakaryocytes. It is also possible that clonal megakaryocytes produce platelets covering the entire density span. The 'normal' density distribution offers a tenable explanation as to why serious bleedings do not occur more frequently.

Abstract [en]

The current thesis was divided into two parts. Basic platelet research is the topic of the first section. The subsequent clinical part examines platelet reactivity in stable angina pectoris (AP) and in atrial fibrillation.

Platelet heterogeneity was investigated in the first section (papers 1 and 2). The cells were separated according to density using linear Percoll™ (a density medium) gradients. The latter contained EDTA, prostaglandin E1 and theophylline to prevent platelet in vitro activity. The platelet population was then divided into density subpopulations (n = 16 - 20). Membrane attached fibrinogen was determined with a flow cytometer technique and used as a marker reflecting platelet in vivo activity. Platelet P-Selectin content was employed to estimate the quantity of platelet α-granules. Paper I examined healthy blood donors (n = 3). The second report (paper II) compared healthy volunteers (n = 2) and subjects with essential thrombocythemia (ET) (n = 2). The latter is a clonal disease being characterized by an excessive platelet production. Platelet counts were determined in all fractions. In manuscripts I and II determination of surface bound fibrinogen and intracellular P-Selectin was carried out in 12 and 16 platelet density fractions, respectively.

High density platelets displayed more surface bound fibrinogen indicating in vivo activity. They also contained less P-Selectin. The latter finding implies platelet in vivo release reactions. Low density platelets circulated with more surface bound fibrinogen as well. Compared with peak density platelets, lighter cells contained more P-Selectin. ET was characterized by a similar platelet density pattern in that high and low density platelets displayed more surface bound fibrinogen. The similarity may explain why severe bleedings do not occur more frequently in ET. It is also obvious from the current thesis that the significance of platelet heterogeneity remains unclear and stimulates to further research. In particular, future work must involve more patients.

The second part (papers III-VI) of the thesis was devoted to stable AP and atrial fibrillation. Determination of platelet reactivity i.e. platelet bound fibrinogen after stimulation was carried out in whole blood. A flow cytometer technique was employed (papers III-VI). Adenosine diphosphate (ADP) (1.7 and 8.5 μmol/L) and a thrombin-receptor activating peptide (TRAP-6) (57 and 74 μmol/L) were used as stimulating agents. Determination of peak platelet density (kg/L) was utilized as a further measure reflecting platelet reactivity (paper V). Surface bound and soluble P-Selectin were employed as platelet activity markers (paper VI).

Gender differences with respect to platelet reactivity were investigated in paper III. Paper IV examined platelets in stable AP without significant coronary flow obstruction(s) as determined by coronary angiography. In a following study platelet reactivity was analysed in diabetes type II complicated by stable AP (paper V). Finally, long-term (more than 2 years) outcome of atrial fibrillation was related to platelet reactivity and activity (paper VI). In this study the subjects were investigated at the initial electrical cardioversion and the analysis were repeated after more than 2 years.

Postmenopausal women with stable AP demonstrated more reactive platelets when stimulating with TRAP-6. They had higher platelet counts (paper III) as well. Stable AP without significant coronary flow obstruction(s) was associated with elevated platelet reactivity (paper IV). Diabetes type II was linked to higher peak platelet density and elevated platelet reactivity (paper V). Augmented platelet reactivity proved to be a feature of subjects remaining in atrial fibrillation more than 2 years after the electrical cardioversion (paper VI). In contrast, the irregular heart rhythm did not affect platelet activity.

It is to assume that platelets at least partly are responsible for the sometimes atypical symptoms of females with stable AP. It is also conceivable to speculate that platelets contribute to chest pain in AP free from significant coronary flow obstruction(s). Theoretically, enhanced platelet reactivity could at least partly explain why diabetes type II affects the prognosis of coronary heart disease. The thesis further shows a possible theoretical link between atrial fibrillation, increased platelet reactivity and clot formation.
