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 with disseminated intravascular coagulation, thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, resuscitated as well as stroke patients. 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

techniques and infrastructure of the research group:
Phase I research ward, human endotoxemia model, endotoxin instillation in the lung, various models of extracorporeal circulation, platelet function analysis, analysis of in vivo markers of clotting, flow cytometry, enzyme linked immunoassays, chemoluminescence assays, RT-PCR, high performance liquid chromatography, expression and purification of recombinant proteins as well as mass spectrometry in collaboration with BOKU & KIMCL
