Objective We investigated clinical and laboratory determinants of plasma protein oxidation and its associations with clot fibrinolysis in type 2 diabetes patients. Materials and Methods Our cross-sectional study consisted of 246 type 2 diabetic patients, 143 (58%) with concomitant cardiovascular disease (CVD), including 41 (17%) with previous myocardial infarction (MI). We measured total protein carbonylation (PC), thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) and total antioxidant capacity (TAC) along with clot lysis time (CLT) and clot permeation (Ks ), fibrinogen, plasminogen, α-2-antiplasmin, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1), thrombin activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFI) and thrombomodulin. Results Total PC correlated positively, while TAC correlated inversely with glycated haemoglobin and diabetes duration (all p < 0.05). Diabetic patients with CVD had higher total PC, TBARS and lower TAC compared with the remainder (all p < 0.001). Among correlations of total PC with Ks , PAI-1, thrombomodulin and TAFI, the strongest was with CLT (r = 0.687, all p  Conclusion Elevated plasma PC, largely driven by a long history of diabetes and concomitant CVD, is an important determinant of hypofibrinolysis in type 2 diabetes.

It has been demonstrated that fibrin clots generated from plasma samples obtained from patients with prior thromboembolic events are denser and less susceptible to lysis. Such a prothrombotic fibrin clot phenotype has been suggested as a new risk factor for venous thromboembolism, but its prognostic value is unclear. To assess whether abnormal clot properties can predict recurrent deep vein thrombosis (DVT), we studied 320 consecutive patients aged 18 to 70 years following the first-ever DVT. Pl...

Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease characterized by, among others, elevated blood glucose levels. Hyperglycaemia as well as enhanced levels of glucose-derived reactive metabolites contribute to the development of diabetic complications partly via increased generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS are not only part of signaling pathways themselves but also lead to carbonylation of particular amino acid side chains by direct metal-catalyzed oxidation. In addition, carbonyl groups can...

An enhanced thrombotic environment and premature atherosclerosis are key factors for the increased cardiovascular risk in diabetes. The occlusive vascular thrombus, formed secondary to interactions between platelets and coagulation proteins, is composed of a skeleton of fibrin fibres with cellular elements embedded in this network. Diabetes is characterised by quantitative and qualitative changes in coagulation proteins, which collectively increase resistance to fibrinolysis, consequently augmen...

Abstract Hypoglycemia is the major barrier for optimal glycemic control in patients on maintenance insulin therapy. It is widely known that good glycemic control leads to prevention of or delay in the development of microvascular complications, and can reduce macrovascular events. It is thought that hypoglycemia may predispose patients to cognitive deterioration and may negatively affect the cardiovascular system. Hypoglycemia per se can contribute to a blunted counterregulatory response and dis...

Diabetes is associated with the development of premature cardiovascular disease (CVD), which relates to the clustering of risk factors such as dyslipidaemia, hypertension, obesity and hyperglycaemia in the presence of insulin resistance. In addition, diabetes is associated with an inflammatory and pro-thrombotic environment, exacerbating the development of atherothrombosis. Insulin resistance and hyperglycaemia both contribute to the development of endothelial cell dysfunction and increased oxid...

Aims. We sought to investigate whether enhanced oxidation contributes to unfavorable fibrin clot properties in patients with diabetes. Methods. We assessed plasma fibrin clot permeation (Ks, a measure of the pore size in fibrin networks) and clot lysis time induced by recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (CLT) in 163 consecutive type 2 diabetic patients (92 men and 71 women) aged 65 ± 8.8 years with a mean glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) of 6.8%. We also measured oxidative stress markers, includ...

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a major cardiovascular risk factor. Persistent platelet activation plays a key role in atherothrombosis in T2DM. However, current antiplatelet treatments appear less effective in T2DM patients vs nondiabetics at similar risk. A large body of evidence supports the contention that oxidative stress, which characterizes DM, may be responsible, at least in part, for less-than-expected response to aspirin, with multiple mechanisms acting at several levels. This revie...

Objective— Among plasma proteins, fibrinogen represents a major target of oxidative modifications. In patients with post–acute myocardial infarction (6 months after the acute event), fibrinogen oxidation-induced carbonyls and fibrinogen function were estimated using in vitro and ex vivo approaches. Fibrinogen structural features and clot architecture were also explored. Approach and Results— In 39 patients with post–acute myocardial infarction and 28 age-, sex-, and risk factor-matched controls,...

Venous ulcers are the most severe manifestation of post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS). We have previously demonstrated that formation of compact fibrin clots resistant to lysis is observed in patients following deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) who developed PTS. The current study investigated whether unfavourable fibrin clot properties can predict post-thrombotic venous ulcers. In a cohort study on 186 consecutive patients following DVT, we determined plasma fibrin clot characteristics, including clot per...

This study explored the effects of protein oxidation during milk processing on spatial learning and memory in rats. Increasing the heating time, fat content, and inlet air temperature during processing by boiling, microwave heating, spray-drying, or freeze-drying increases milk protein oxidation. Oxidative damage done to milk proteins by microwave heating is greater than that caused by boiling. Dityrosine (DT), as a kind of tyrosine oxidation product, is the most important marker of this process...
