CHOP-led research study identifies key target in treatment-resistant hemophilia A
CHOP-led research study identifies key target in treatment-resistant hemophilia A
Philadelphia, April 15, 2021–Researchers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) have identified a key target that may be responsible for treatment failure in about 30% of patients with hemophilia A. The target, known as B cell activating factor (BAFF), appears to promote antibodies against and inhibitors of the missing blood clotting factor that is given to these patients to control their…

unbelievable...
unbelievable…
Our son had an appointment with hematology today. He was scheduled to get his bloodwork results. Results from those blood tests they couldn’t quite manage. I had predicted that they were going to tell us that all of his blood tests came back clear. I had expressed annoyance at the way this office seems to run things. My son asked me to not complain about it if I were right. So, unfortunately for…

Woohoo. My treatment wrapped up and they have me hanging around a bit to make sure I'm alright to go. They drew the full 400mL volume this time, which is pretty lit. After this, I'm off to wait for my ride.

Well, shit.
I got my labs back and my MCH, MCV, and MCHC are finally normal. Like, barely into the normal range, but I'll take it. But, my RBC, HCT, and HGB are above normal which might be why everything else is looking decent for a change. Ugh.

I'm chilling in the waiting area at hematology to see if I need a session today, and I'm hoping I can skate by without one if I'm lucky since I haven't been here in six months. It's a bit of a letdown since the whole reason why we pushed things back was because I was supposed to have surgery to months ago, but that got scrapped because my insurance sucks and that would have had me out of commission for a while. It is what it is, I guess. It just sucks. But hey, if I can get by without a session, I'm treating myself tonight.

Another reschedule...
Another reschedule…
We received a call to reschedule our son’s pulmonary appointment that was scheduled for Thursday. The doctor’s been called to the hospital. It’s the coronavirus. There’s been an upsurge of hospitalizations due to covid-19 in our area. I’m sure it is all of those people defiantly not wearing masks. The pulmonary doctor has him on this long run of prednisone for the specific purpose of running…

did you know you can have Death Crystals in your blood? theyre technically called "Critical green inclusions" but anyways they show up in the white blood cells of severely ill patients, typically within 2 weeks of their death. we dont know what causes them or what theyre made of, and theyre a poor diagnostic tool, but if have them, its over!

Repurposed Heart and Flu Drugs May Help Body Fight Sepsis
Tumblr media
Higher platelet counts linked to better outcomes for patients with staph sepsis; repurposed drugs that protect platelets improve survival of septic mice
Despite continued improvements in antibiotics and hospital intensive care, staph sepsis — a bloodstream infection caused by Staphylococcus aureus bacteria — still causes severe illness or death in 20 to 30 percent of patients who contract it.
Rather than continue to throw more antibiotics at the problem, University of California San Diego researchers want to boost the other side of the equation: the patient’s own immune system.
The team recently discovered a battle that occurs between staph bacteria and platelets — blood cells known better for their role in clotting than in immune defense. In some sepsis cases, they found, the bacteria win out and platelet levels plummet. Patients with fewer platelets were more likely to die of staph sepsis than patients with higher platelet counts.
The researchers also determined that two currently available prescription medications, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for other uses, protect platelets and improve survival in mouse models of staph sepsis. The two repurposed drugs were ticagrelor (Brilinta), a blood thinner commonly prescribed to prevent heart attack recurrence, and oseltamivir (Tamiflu), prescribed to treat the flu.
The study publishes March 24, 2021 in Science Translational Medicine.
“In many cases, the antibiotics we give these patients should be able to kill the bacteria, based on lab tests, yet a significant number of patients are not pulling through,” said senior author Victor Nizet, MD, Distinguished Professor at UC San Diego School of Medicine and Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. “If we can reduce mortality in staph sepsis by 10 or 20 percent by arming or protecting the immune system, we can likely save more lives than discovering an additional new antibiotic that may still not cure the sickest patients.”

update time
Swinging in real quick before getting ready for work. I thought I’d take a few minutes to update y’all on what’s happening with the son. Monday –hematology Remember last week when they called and confessed to having forgotten to send his blood out for testing? Instead of getting his results he returned to the lab to have his blood redrawn. The new appointment was scheduled for the 22nd. My…
