• Cholesterol Crystals Induce coagulation Activation through Complement-Dependent Expression of Monocytic Tissue Factor 

      Gravastrand, Caroline S.; Steinkjer, Bjørg; Halvorsen, Bente; Landsem, Anne; Skjelland, Mona; Jacobsen, Eva Astrid; Woodruff, Trent M.; Lambris, John D.; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Brekke, Ole-Lars; Espevik, Terje; Rokstad, Anne Mari (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Cholesterol crystals (CC) are strong activators of complement and could potentially be involved in thromboinflammation through complement-coagulation cross-talk. To explore the coagulation-inducing potential of CC, we ...
    • Staphylococcus aureus-induced complement activation promotes tissue factor-mediated coagulation 

      Skjeflo, Espen Waage; Christiansen, Dorte; Fure, Hilde; Ludviksen, Judith K; Woodruff, Trent M.; Espevik, Terje; Nielsen, Erik Waage; Brekke, Ole-Lars; Mollnes, Tom Eirik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Background There is extensive cross‐talk between the complement system, the Toll‐like receptors (TLRs), and hemostasis. Consumptive coagulopathy is a hallmark of sepsis, and is often mediated through increased tissue ...
