The Editors-in-Chief of the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis, Frits Rosendaal and Pieter Reitsma, have highlighted the following articles in the January issue of JTH. View all past Editors' Picks.


From the editors: We would like to put four articles from the January issue in the spotlight, two reviews and two “In Focus” papers. The first review contains a critical appraisal of the efficacy and safety of inferior vena cava filters in the prevention of pulmonary emboli. The second review discusses in great mechanistic and clinical detail, the role of von Willebrand factor in angiogenesis. As usual the “In Focus” articles are accompanied by commentaries that provide additional perspective on the importance of the findings. The first article/commentary present further preclinical evidence for the effectiveness of targeting factor VIII expression using gene therapy tools, to platelets. The second article/commentary thoroughly explore the effects of plasminogen receptor deficiency on macrophage recruitment in vivo.
