Why so little progress in therapeutic thrombolysis? The current state of the art and prospects for improvement

IntroductionThrombosis is a major contributor to disability and mortality worldwide and is estimated to be the cause of one in four deaths [1]. It is the pathology responsible for triggering acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and ischemic stroke, and is the primary cause of venous thromboembolism. The pathogenesis has been well-studied starting with Virchow more than 150 years ago ...

Thrombolytic efficacy and enzymatic activity of rt-PA-loaded echogenic liposomes

Echogenic liposomes (ELIP), that can encapsulate both recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator (rt-PA) and microbubbles, are under development to improve the treatment of thrombo-occlusive disease. However, the enzymatic activity, thrombolytic efficacy, and stable cavitation activity generated by this agent has yet to be evaluated and compared to another established ...
