This Month in JTH

Regulation of thrombosis risk by the contact activation system and kallikrein/kinin system and renin angiotensin system.


Special Feature

International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis Core Curriculum Project: Core Competencies in Clinical Thrombosis and Haemostasis
A special feature article summarizes the Haemostasis Core Curriculum Project. This initiative of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis aims to provide a framework of core competences that can be used worldwide to improve and harmonize training of basic scientists and clinicians in our field.

Review Articles
The Contact Activation and Kallikrein/Kinin Systems: Pathophysiologic and Physiologic Activities

Actions of Thrombin in the Interstitium

Recent developments on the nomenclature, presence, isolation, detection and clinical impact of extracellular vesicles
There are three authoritative review articles in the January issue of JTH. The first is on the contact system and zooms in on current physiologic and pathophysiologic insights. The second article deals with the actions of thrombin in the interstitium and the putative relationship between thrombin and interstitial fibrosis. The third review article is a good read for all those who strive to stay current on many aspects of the fast moving field that investigates the function of microvesicles.


Challenging the anticoagulant paradigm?

In Focus
Discovery and characterization of an antibody directed against exosite I of thrombin
The In Focus article – as usual accompanied by a commentary that provides additional background and perspective – describes a potentially revolutionary antibody against exosite I of thrombin that seems capable of inhibiting coagulation without increasing bleeding risk.
