Abstract [en]

Introduction: Venous thromboembolism(VTE) is considered a chronic disease, since a high percentage of patients experience recurrences. Oral anticoagulants are effective in preventing recurrences at a price of potential bleeding complications, which underlines the importance of finding reliable markers for estimating the individual recurrence risk. In this report we evaluate thrombin generation markers at the time of an acute VTE as predictive markers for recurrence risk. Gender, presence of factor V Leiden and acquired provocative factors were taken into consideration. Additionally, we study the correlation between thrombin generation at the time of an acute VTE and thrombin generation measured four to eight weeks after discontinuation of anticoagulants. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanMaterials and Methods: Themain cohort consisted of 115 patients with a confirmed thromboembolic event at inclusion.

The great over-lap in thrombin generation between patients with and without recurrences though, makes the use of thrombin generation profiles for advice on length of oral anticoagulation for an individual patient doubtful at the present stage of knowledge.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis is to evaluate thrombin generation in patients with thrombophilia (Paper I), in patients with venous thromboembolism (Paper II), in healthy women during the menstrual cycle (Paper III), in patients with liver disease (Paper IV) and in patients with mild deficiency of factor VII (Paper V).

For this purpose, thrombin generation was measured in platelet poor plasma by the calibrated automated thrombogram (CAT®) assay. Thrombin generation expresses the overall haemostatic potential, in contrast to the more traditional coagulation tests, which concentrate on individual factors or coagulation pathways. The thrombin generation markers that were measured and studied were: lagtime (clotting time), endogenous thrombin potential (ETP, total thrombin concentration), peak (maximum thrombin concentration) and time to peak (ttpeak).

The cohorts for Papers I and II are part of a larger cohort (The LInköping Study on Thrombosis, LIST), which included 516 consecutive patients who presented at the Emergency Department of Linköping University Hospital, Sweden with the clinical suspicion of venous thrombosis. In Paper I thrombin generation was measured in the absence of thrombomodulin in patients with thrombophilia (factor V Leiden, n=98 and prothrombin G20210A mutation, n=15) and in an equal number of age- and gendermatched controls. The results were associated with the presence of thrombosis, as well as gender and age. It was shown that thrombin generation did not differ significantly among patients and controls. Patients with and patients without thrombophilia who had suffered a thrombosis upon inclusion had longer lagtime compared with their counterparts without thrombosis. Neither age nor gender had any effect on the results.

In Paper II, thrombin generation at the time of an acute thromboembolic episode was studied as a potential early marker for recurrence during a 7-year follow-up in 115 patients with venous thrombosis upon inclusion. It was shown that patients with recurrences during follow-up had longer lagtime and ttpeak at the time of the acute thrombosis, whereas those without recurrences had higher ETP and peak. Those results were particularly evident in the group of patients with an unprovoked thrombosis upon inclusion.

In Paper III, thrombin generation was measured in the follicular and luteal phase of a normal menstrual cycle in 102 healthy women not taking oral contraceptives. The results were associated with haemostatic parameters (fibrinogen, antithrombin, D-dimer, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, factors VII, VIII, X and von Willebrand) as well as the physiological concentrations of oestradiol, progesterone, antimüllerian hormone and sex hormone-binding globulin and the number of pregnancies and deliveries for these women. ETP was significantly higher during the luteal phase. However, this could not be explained by the elevation of other procoagulant factors during the same phase. Progesterone was found to exert a more significant effect on haemostasis than oestradiol during both phases (multiple regression analysis).

In Paper IV, thrombin generation was measured in the presence and absence of thrombomodulin in 47 patients with portal vein thrombosis, PVT (11 with cirrhotic PVT and 36 with non-cirrhotic PVT), 15 patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome and 24 patients with cirrhosis, as well as 21 healthy controls. Since 15 patients with PVT (2 with cirrhotic PVT and 13 with non-cirrhotic PVT) and 10 patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome were treated with warfarin at the time of the blood sampling, an equal number of patients matched for age, gender and prothrombin time-international normalized ratio with atrial fibrillation and no hepatic diseases were used as controls. It was shown that hypercoagulability, expressed as total and maximum concentration of generated thrombin as well as thrombomodulin resistance [thrombin generation markers measured in the presence]/[thrombin generation markers measured in the absence of thrombomodulin] was pronounced in the groups of patients with cirrhosis, regardless of the presence of splanchnic thrombosis.

In Paper V, thrombin generation in the presence of human and different concentrations of rabbit thromboplastin was measured in 10 patients with mild deficiency of factor VII and in 12 controls. In these patients, the levels of factor VII varied slightly depending on the origin of the thromboplastin used in the reagent. Nine out of 10 patients had a mutation in common (Arg353Gln), which was, however, not associated with the diversity in the factor VII measurements due to the origin of thromboplastin. ETP in patients with mild factor VII deficiency was about 86% of the ETP in the control group. The expected thrombin generation patterns with increasing concentrations of thromboplastin did not differ depending on the origin of thromboplastin in the patient group.
