Valproic acid selectively increases vascular endothelial tissue-type plasminogen activator production and reduces thrombus formation in the mouse
P. Larsson, I. Alwis, B. Niego, M. Sashindranath, P. Fogelstrand, M. C. L. Wu, L. Glise, M. Magnusson, M. Daglas, N. Bergh, S. P. Jackson, R. L. Medcalf and S. Jern

Clinical Hemostasis and Thrombosis:

Original Article
Hospital-related first venous thromboembolism and risk of recurrence
E. Bjøri, N. Arshad, H. S. Johnsen, J.-B. Hansen, S. K. Brækkan


Original Article
N-glycan truncation causes enhanced clearance of plasma-derived von Willebrand factor
J.. M. O'Sullivan, S. Aguila, E. McRae, S. E. Ward, O. Rawley, P. G. Fallon, T. M. Brophy, R. J.S. Preston, L. Brady, O. Sheils, A. Chion and J. S. O'Donnell
We also turn the spotlight on two regular articles. The first is clinical in nature and examines risk of recurrent venous thrombosis in a hospital setting. The second is very basic and examines the role of sugar residues, in particular N-glycan, in the clearance of von Willebrand factor from the circulation.
