SAN FRANCISCO -- Shimojani LLC, a privately held biotech company, today announced that it has acquired an exclusive license from Niigata University for worldwide development and commercialization rights to an invention that has the potential to substantially reduce the risk of hemorrhage in acute ischemic stroke patients, including those who receive tissue plasminogen activator (tPA).
A In the past, experts considered the time limit for using the drug tissue plasminogen activator (tPA)--which is used to dissolve blood clots in people who have suffered an ischemic stroke--to be 4 5 hours, after which it was considered too late to be effective.
Editor's Note: Additionally, plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) was reduced, reflecting a reduction in the risk of excessive blood clotting, while adiponectin and interleukin 10 were increased in the group that received grape extract with resveratrol.
Objective: To compare levels of tissue plasminogen activator and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 levels in patients with acute myocardial infarction and unstable angina in order to understand the use of high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP), coagulation and fibrinolysis markers for cardiovascular risk assessment.
