Studies of SOS treatments showed that the most promising agent is defibrotide (58), which is a new olygodeoxyribonucleotide derivative that has demonstrated increased tPA and thrombomodulin but decreased vWF and the plasminogen activator inhibitor Type 1 expression.
Additionally, the utility of antithrombin and thrombomodulin is also being investigated.
The enzymatic cleavage from the cell surface produces soluble thrombomodulin (sTM) in the plasma.

Endothelial surface becomes prothrombogenic due to reduced production and expression of molecules such as thrombomodulin, heparan sulfate, NO, [PGI.sub.2], accompanied by increased von Willebrand factor (vWF), plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1), tissue factor (TF) and platelet activating factor (PAF).
aHUS is a thrombotic microangiopathy caused by mutations of factor H, factor I, factor B, membrane cofactor protein, C3 convertase component, and thrombomodulin gene.
In several recent studies, markers indicating endothelial damage, such as thrombomodulin, adrenomedullin, and nitrite, have been found to be high in FMF patients in the non-attack period as well.
Thrombomodulin polymorphism -33G>A was reported as a determinant of myocardial infarction susceptibility in Asia [7-9].
Antithrombotic proteins such as thrombomodulin and endothelial protein C receptor (EPCR) are regionally expressed on the valves and are sensitive to hypoxia and inflammation.
It induces factor expression of vasodilators and antithrombotic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory genes (e.g., endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), thrombomodulin (TM), and heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1)) and reduces the expression of adhesion molecules (vascular cell adhesionmolecule 1 (VCAM-1) and E-selectin), conferring a vasoprotective endothelial phenotype [9-11].
activated partial thromboplastin time assay kit (F008-2), prothrombin time assay kit (F002), thrombin time assay kit (F009), fibrinogen (FIB) assay kit (F010), von Willebrand factor (vWF) ELISA kit (H274), and thrombomodulin (TM) ELISA kit (H273) were bought from Nanjing Jian Cheng Bioengineering Institute (Nanjing, China).
