We enrolled consecutive patients with non-valvular AF presenting to five busy general hospitals in Kuwait for regular international normalised ratio (INR) testing. Patients were required to be on warfarin for more than 3 months and to have had at least 5 INR measurements. We recorded up to 20 INR measurements per patient. Time in therapeutic range (TTR) was assessed by the Rosendaal method and the percentage of INR measurements in the therapeutic range was recorded.

Use of a more contemporary estimate of stroke risk shifts the "tipping point," such that anticoagulation is preferred at a higher CHADS(2) score, reducing the number of patients for whom anticoagulation is recommended. The introduction of "new, safer" agents, however, would shift the tipping point in the opposite direction.

Marmoset cytochrome P450 2C19, highly homologous to human P450 2C9 and 2C19, has been identified in common marmosets (Callithrix jacchus), a nonhuman primate species used in drug metabolism studies. Although genetic variants in human and macaque P450 2C genes account for the interindividual variability in drug metabolism, genetic variants have not been investigated in the marmoset P450 2C19 In this study, sequencing of P450 2C19 in 24 marmosets identified three variants p.[(Phe7Leu; Ser254Leu; Ile469Thr)], which showed substantially reduced metabolic capacity of S-warfarin compared with the wild-type group in vivo and in vitro. Although mean plasma concentrations of R-warfarin in marmosets determined after chiral separation were similar between the homozygous mutant and wild-type groups up to 24 hours after the intravenous and oral administrations of racemic warfarin, S-warfarin depletion from plasma was significantly faster in the three wild-type marmosets compared with the three homozygous mutant marmosets. These variants, cosegregating in the marmosets analyzed, influenced metabolic activities in 18 marmoset liver microsomes because the homozygotes and heterozygotes showed significantly reduced catalytic activities in liver microsomes toward S-warfarin 7-hydroxylation compared with the wild-type group. Kinetic analysis for S-warfarin 7-hydroxylation indicated that the recombinant P450 2C19 Ser254Leu variant would change the metabolic capacity. These results indicated that the interindividual variability of P450 2C-dependent drug metabolism such as S-warfarin clearance is at least partly accounted for by P450 2C19 variants in marmosets, suggesting that polymorphic P450 2C-dependent catalytic functions are relatively similar between marmosets and humans.

NOACs were highly effective for prevention of stroke or systemic embolism in Asian octogenarian AF patients. However, major bleeding occurred excessively high in both anticoagulant groups. Further study is required on the optimal anticoagulant regimen in octogenarian population.

Stroke is a major health problem with significant impact on the affected individuals and the whole community. In light of stroke being the leading cause of disability, the ageing of the population and the high incidence of stroke among the elderly, highlight the importance of primary and secondary prevention interventions among this group. The elderly generally have been underrepresented in clinical trials, creating many uncertainties and less optimal medical care for this group of patients.

The purpose of this study was to assess the association between warfarin therapy and time to surgery, length of hospital stay, and survival in patients sustaining a fractured neck of the femur.

The suspicion of a bronchial carcinoma was confirmed by CT. Bronchoscopically a 2 cm lesion in the left upper lobe was biopsied. Additionally, bronchoscopy revealed an approximately erythematous, bloody discolored lesion (diameter 7 mm) at a tracheotomy scar.

MicroRNAs are small single stranded molecules that play a crucial role in regulation of physiological and pathological processes. Recent studies showed that VKORC1 gene contains an highly evolutionary conserved binding site for mir-133. Moreover, in human hepatocytes mir-133 is constitutively co-expressed with VKORC1. Since VKORC1 protein is the target of warfarin treatment, the aim of this study was to verify if genetic variations in MIR133A1, MIR133A2 and MIR133B could contribute to warfarin dose variability. By direct sequencing, we identified 4 SNPs in MIR133A2 gene and 1 SNP in MIR133B gene. Three SNPs in MIR133A2 were in complete linkage disequilibrium and correlated with warfarin dose: indeed, for each SNP, patients carrying the GA or AA genotype required a MWWD significantly higher than the wildtype genotype (P=0.019). We also inferred the haplotypes in MIR133A2 gene. The GC haplotype required a MWWD significantly lower than AT haplotype (P=0.012). The multiple linear regression analysis confirmed that rs45547937 (as tag SNP) in MIR133A2 could be involved in warfarin dosing variability, (P=0.016). These results seem to suggest that also polymorphisms in miRNA precursors may potentially affects drug response variability.

Older TBI patients on preinjury ACAP agents experience a comparatively higher rate of inpatient mortality and other adverse outcomes caused by the effects of antiplatelet agents. Our findings should inform decision making regarding prognosis and caution against grouping anticoagulant and antiplatelet users together in considering outcomes.
