The Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (JTH) Editors Pieter Reitsma and Frits Rosendaal highlighted three articles in the December issue. From the editors:

Venous thrombosis and cancer are closely linked. The potential mechanisms that increase susceptibility for thrombosis in cancer patients may depend on tissue factor-bearing microparticles. A review by Date and colleagues in this December issue explores the role of these microparticles, also in the context of activated endothelium and leucocytes.

 Venous thrombosis is a traumatic and life-threatening condition that can have long-term effects on mental health. An article by Højen and colleagues explores the mental well-being of adolescents and adults with venous thrombosis,  and concludes with a call for adequate support of these patients. 

 There are several laboratory methods available for the quantification of dabigatran. Jaffer and colleagues compare the ecarin chromogeneic assay and diluted thrombin time. Both tests are equally useful and the authors urge regulators and hospitals to make these tests available for patient care.
