Antithrombotic management plan for cancer patients

Press release from: SIMFO GmbH

In Germany Thrombosis occurs 470.000 timesevery year - as often as a new cancer is diagnosed. With 44.000 deadly lung artery embolisms every year, thrombosis is very dangerous.

Around 30 independent risk factors are known. One of the more important risk factors seems to be the amount of intracirculatory tissue factor molecules which is brought into circulation bound to the circulating epithelial cells.

Tissue factor is always active to start the coagulation process. Whether or not such cells are direct daughters or grand daughters of a cancer or derived from a metastasis or even are just waste from an inflammatory process doesn´t play a role - the additional risk directly depends on the amount of stimulation by the tissue factor molecules.

The Khorana score was very important in its hints to the phenomenon of increased incidence of thrombosis with cancer of different organ sources. However it combines the methodological problems of scores in general with looking after the influence of a surrogate through discreting eye glasses.

The thrombotrac approach came two steps further by looking directly into an effective mechanism and using real numbers instead of questionable a priori classifications. In thrombotrac, an algorithm puts the actual strengths and interactions of the risk factors into a model, using the simplest possible assumptions.

Therefore we all together could meditate about our way to get an antithrombotic management plan. I would be glad joining.

Ki67 as an additional marker on circulating tumor cells
Ki67 is a nuclear protein that is associated with cell proliferation. Ki67 is present during all active phases of the growth cycle, but is absent in resting (quiescent) cells. Ki67 is identified with the IHC method. The presence of Ki67 protein on circulating tumor cells indicates the percentage of circulating tumor cells in the active growth phase of the cell cycle. Higher amounts are associated with an increased risk of
