vWF fibers induce thrombosis during cancer


Borsig, Lubor (2015). vWF fibers induce thrombosis during cancer. Blood, 125(20):3042-3043.

Abstract

In this issue of Blood, Bauer et al1 provide an explanation for the formation of luminal von Willebrand factor (vWF) fibers observed in cancer patients, which is initiated through tumor-derived VEGF-A. Platelet aggregation on vWF fibers correlated with a prothrombic state associated with decreased ADAMTS13 activity in cancer patients.
