@bhwords This story (clinical presentation) -- a reminder of the patients from the front lines in the beginning and what some docs went through! #COVID19 #ASH22 2/n Image
@bhwords #COVID19 is the 'perfect suit for VTE' ... inflammation, sticky blood, vessel wall changes. The amazingly high levels of fibrinogen (14g/L! (normal is 2-4g/L)) D-dimers reported on a log scale because of the significant increase. #ASH22 3/n

🧐”Antiphospholipid antibodies and vitamin D deficiency in COVID-19 infection with and without venous or arterial thrombosis: A pilot case-control study”.
…”Patients with both APLa and vitamin D deficiency had significantly more thrombosis compared to patients who were antibody positive without vitamin D deficiency (100% vs 47.4%; p = 0.01).”👀
…”Conclusions: Thrombosis in COVID-19 was associated with concomitant APLa and vitamin D deficiency. Future studies in COVID-19 should assess the role of vitamin D in reducing thrombosis.”👀. #covid #thrombosis #vitaminD

1) Welcome to an #accredited #tweetorial on a unique emerging (in Ph3 now) option for specifically reversing the #antiplatelet effects of #ticagrelor: it's #bentracimab. Expert faculty is antithrombotic agent reversal guru @md_pollack of @UMMCnews, working to create #AHealthierMS

3) It is an unfortunate fact of life that one cannot prescribe #anticoagulant or #antiplatelet (together, #antithrombotic) therapy without increasing a patient's #bleedingrisk. That is why it should be an individualized risk:benefit decision, ideally . . .

Deaths WITH #Covid19 age 0-19 yrs as of Jan 21 2022:


Reported/accepted #vaccine adverse events age 5-17 yrs (#Pfizer Comirnaty authorized Nov 19, 2021) as of Jan 14 2022 (56 days)

Prior to intro. of user fees in 1994, #HealthCanada was solely funded by tax dollars - therefore accountable to the public. By 2018, approx. 50% of #HealthCanada’s budget came from #Pharma. Quietly announced in Oct 2017 was intention to increase to 90%.
On May 27, 2021, Dr. Patrick Phillips was asked if the data in Canada's adverse event system can be trusted. He replied "absolutely not" & suggested #VAERS may be more reliable. However, "HHS’s own studies indicate that VAERS may be understating vaccine injuries by OVER 99%."

Thanks to the @CEPIvaccines @WHO @EuWHOEurope #Covax and others, 24,000 doses of #AstraZeneca vaccines arrived in 🇲🇪 last week, and this is just fantastic! But as in other European countries, there is a lot of hesitancy and fear related to this vaccine. 👇🏻 (🧵)
The ministry of health @MinZdravlja made the #AstraZeneca vaccine available to all 65+ old citizens, and this is great news as they are the most vulnerable group that was not eligible for @sputnikvaccine and #Sinopharm vaccines given in previous weeks to people 70+ 👇🏻
The main fear from what I understand is related to the inconsistent recommendations about the appropriate target groups and recent reports of #thrombotic events recorded in several EU countries now. Let’s address the issues one by one 👇🏻

Aberrant #glycosylation of anti-Spike antibodies promotes #thrombosis as observed in severely ill #COVID19 patients. Very interesting work from our collaborators in the UK:…. A few thoughts on why this could be important. 1/4
Severely ill patients make IgG with aberrant glycosylation. We previously showed that this (over)activates lung macrophages, which in turn activates endothelium, which in turn activates platelets. But this paper shows that the antibodies (over)activate platelets directly! 2/4
Interestingly, anti-Spike IgG with “normal” glycosylation (mild COVID-19 patients) has no effect. Only IgG with the combination of low fucose AND high galactose (severely ill patients) promotes thrombosis. In contrast, (over)activation of macrophages only requires low fucose. 3/4

Long 🧵 on vaccines and blood clots (from somebody who spends an inordinate amount of time thinking about, preventing & treating blood clots). #COVID19 #COVID19vaccine #hemetwitter #thrombosis 1/n
Yesterday @GovCanHealth, @MHRAgovuk, @EMA_News and my profession's organization @ThrombosisCan made clear statements that risks posed by AZ vaccine are far outweighed by its benefits. Does that square with media reports? Should we really get the first shot available to us? 2/n
I love my job as a blood and blood clot specialist. (LOVE IT!) So much of it focuses on talking to people about risks & how to stay safe DESPITE those risks. A lot of common medical procedures, drugs & life experiences [aging, pregnancy] increase your blood clot risk. BUT... 3/n

Meet Dr Chantal Attard @Chantal_Attard, the researcher from @MCRI_for_kids who is transforming the lives of children living with complex heart disease!

A thread 👇

#blood #stroke #bleeding #haematology
@AcademicChatter #thrombosis #meettheresearcher #hematology #cardiology Image
The coagulation system prevents the body from bleeding after injury, but what you might not know is this system continuously develops with age. This means children & adults have different risks of blood clotting + bleeding. This alters how they react to blood-thinning medications
“How can we protect our most vulnerable children?” This is the research aspiration that Chantal pursues in her daily life.

Meet Prof Vera Ignjatovic @IgnitingScience, the medical researcher - and former olympian - from @MCRI_for_kids that is changing the face of pediatric blood disorder research.

A thread 👇

@AcademicChatter #haematology #thrombosis #thrombolysis #medicalresearch #olympian Image
Blood clots are useful – they help us stop bleeding when we have an injury. However, the formation of blood clots within our blood stream (thrombosis) can have disastrous consequences – including death.
Children in hospital are much more likely to have thrombosis occur than healthy children. Childhood thrombosis has been described as the “new epidemic” in hospitals; venous thromboses in children = a 3% mortality rate, & survivors may experience long-term side effects.
