Patents can have low (<5 BU), or high titer inhibitors. Patients can also be classified by the response of their inhibitor to factor infusion. ” In between exposures to factor VIII, inhibitor patients may develop low antibody titers that allow a “window” for use of factor VIII with severe hemorrhage.
The thrombin time is elevated in: 1) DIC (FDP’s interfere with polymerization), 2) low fibrinogen levels, 3) dysfibrinogenemia, and 4) in the presence of heparin (very sensitive). Reptilase Time This is the same as thrombin time but is performed with a snake venom (Bothrops atrox) that cleaves fibrinogen and is insensitive to heparin. The reptilase time is elevated in the same conditions in which the thrombin time is elevated but the reptilase time is not affected by heparin. Thrombin time and reptilase time are most useful in the evaluation of dysfibrinogenemia.
