Hemostasis or haemostasis is a complex process which causes the bleeding process to stop. Most times this includes the changing of blood from a fluid to a solid state. Intact blood vessels are central to moderating blood's tendency to clot.
In recent news, there has been a case where a patient experienced pain due to a surgical procedure involving sutures, resulting in the unintended presence of gauze within the patient's body.
While the overall cancer death rate has been steadily declining in the U.S. since the 1990s, death rates due to pancreatic cancer are increasing.
A world-first clinical trial published in JAMA could provide an easy way to save tens of thousands of units of blood every year in Canada and much more worldwide.
Institute of Hematology & Blood Diseases Hospital, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences &Peking Union Medical College, conducted a multicenter comprehensive retrospective analysis to assess the effectiveness and safety of primary single-agent and combination therapies in treating adult patients with relapsed immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).
Investigated the association between obesity in early pregnancy and long-term post-pregnancy risk of venous thromboembolism.
Korean researchers have unveiled a novel signaling pathway that fosters aging-related chronic metabolic disorders.

Announcing a new publication for Acta Materia Medica journal. Platelets are blood components traditionally believed to have fundamental roles in vascular hemostasis and thrombosis.
Researchers evaluated the effects of phenolic compounds in extra virgin olive oil on human fibroblasts.
In a recent study published in the journal Molecular & Cellular Proteomics, researchers analyzed the proteins in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples obtained from African green monkeys and rhesus macaques infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2 to understand the neurological manifestations of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The glycoprotein V of the blood platelets is an important switch point for hemostasis and thrombus formation. This new finding could have great clinical potential.
Molecules from mucus can be used to produce synthetic bone graft material and help with the healing of larger bone loss, a new study found.
The German Research Foundation (DFG) has approved the establishment and funding of the Collaborative Research Center/Transregio (CRC/TRR) 355 "Heterogeneity and functional specialization of regulatory T cells in distinct microenvironments".

A new study posted in the pre-print server bioRxiv* aimed to analyze the impact of COVID-19 on platelet proteome and relate the functional responses of platelets and the formation of platelet-neutrophil aggregate in hospitalized COVID-19 patients.
In a recent study, researchers determined if monkeypox (MPX) infection affected the hemostatic system like that observed in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
Targeting Na+/K+ ATPase alpha 1 (ATP1A1) subunit proteins could help identify novel therapies for addressing blood clots and thrombosis, according to a new study by Marshall University researchers.
Pregnancy brings deep changes in women's physiology, especially regarding her blood system. The placenta is the organ which ensures an efficient communication between the mother and the baby.
