Know-how and research interests
Our group is interested in platelet function and coagulation in various clinical settings but particularly emergencies, and critically ill patients. We have been studying systemic effects of human thrombin and staphylococcus aureus induced disseminated intravascular coagulation (in collaboration with Biomed Science). We are using a human endotoxemia model to characterize the mechanism of action of various investigational anticoagulants and anti-inflammatory drugs in phase I trials, and have recently established a model of endotoxin instillation into the lung. We also focus on high on treatment platelet reactivity in patients taking P2Y12 inhibitors, and have been investigating drug-drug interactions of anti-platelet drugs, and the pharmacodynamic effects of aptamers on coagulation and platelets.
