15 Screening tests aPTT and PT tests: Usually sensitive enough to detect abnormal coagulant factor actiivity: fibrinogen, FII, FV, FV+FVIII, FVII, FX and FXI May be normal in mild deficiencies, especially fibrinogen and FII Normal in FXIII deficiency Mixing tests: Correction of the abnormality indicates that a factor deficiency No correction indicates presence of an inhibitor TT test: Required for the diagnosis of fibrinogen deficiency Interpretation in relation to the personal and family history Kitchen S, McCraw A, Echenagucia A.

16 Factor activity level One-stage coagulation assays: - aPTT based – FXI deficiency - PT based – FII, FV, FVII, FX deficiencies Fibrinogen assays FXIII assays Factor antigen level Immunochemical methods Specific factor assays Not mandatory except for fibrinogen and FII deficiencies.

17 Fibrinogen activity assays Clauss fibrinogen assay PT-derived Fg assay Recommendations Clauss fibrinogen assay remains the reference method PT-Fg assays are not recommended for routine clinical use Mackie IJ et al. Guidelines on fibrinogen assays. Br J Haematol 2003; 121: 396-404. Levels measured by different assays may vary significantly Uncertainty in assigning the severity of the hypofibrinogenemia

18 FXIII activity assays Clot solubility assay Functional FXIII activity assays: - Photometric assays - Fluorimetric assays - Putrescine incorporation assays Note Association in patients with FXIII < 5% is difficult to interpret and may not be accurate Clot solubility assay is no longer recommended since it is qualitative, poorly standardized, and detects only severe FXIII deficiency Schroeder V et al. FXIII deficiency: An Update. Semin Thromb Hemost 2013; 39: 632-41 Recommendations by the FXIII and Fibrinogen SSC subcommittee of the ISTH 1. First-line screening test Quantitative functional FXIII activity assay If FXIII activity is decreased 2. Establish subtype of FXIII deficiency Measurement of antigen concentration (FXIII-A2B2, FXIII-A, FXIII-B) Only in case of suspected acquired FXIII deficiency: 3. Detection of autoantibodies Mixing study (detection of neutralizing antibodies against FXIII-A) Binding assay (detection of nonneutralizing antibodies) For research purpose only: Characterization of molecular genetic defect

19 Phenotype diagnosis: a summary

20 Problems with clotting assays Despite the existence of recommendations, a number of problems still remain, particularly for some deficiencies (Fibrinogen and FXIII): ─ Assay accuracy at low factor levels ─ Lack of standardization – high inter-laboratory variability

21 Laboratory phenotype and clinical severity 3 years of data collection 13 European centers from 11 countries 489 patients registered in the database

22 Assigned categories of clinical bleeding severity Peyvandi F et al J Thromb Haemost2012;10:615-621

23 Linear regression analysis: adjusted for age, gender, and country where diagnosis was made Excellent correlationGood correlationNo correlation Factor activity (Y) = Beta* Bleeding severity (X) + Constant Results

24 SSC – ISTH recommendations on RBDS Coagulant factor deficiency Laboratory phenotype Severe (coagulant activity associated with spontaneous major bleeding) Moderate (coagulant activity associated with minor spontaneous or triggered bleeding) Mild (coagulant activity associated with a mostly asymptomatic disease course) Coagulant activity Fibrinogenundetectable clot≤0,1 g/L>0,1 g/L FIIundetectable activity≤10%>10% FVundetectable activity10%≥10% FV+FVIII<20%20-40%>40% FVII<10%10-20%>20% FX<10%10-40%>40% FXIIIundetectable activity30%≥30%

25 Do clotting factor levels predict severity? The relationship between coagulation factor activity level and clinical bleeding severity is heterogeneous A strong association exists for fibrinogen, FX and FXIII deficiencies No association for FXI deficiency The minimum factor levels to prevent spontaneous major bleeding is different in various deficiencies It is not appropriate to use a single criterion of classification for all types of RBDs

26 Global hemostasis assays Tests investigating the global hemostatic capacity could help: -to predict clinical phenotype -to determine the effectiveness of therapies -to monitor treatment particularly FXI deficiency where standard assays fail to correlate with bleeding risk TGT TEG

27 Recently, these tests have been used to evaluate hemostasis in patients with RBDs, specifically FV and FXI deficiency However test standardization to reproduce reliable measurements facilitated by standardized pre-analytical and analytical procedures is required before widespread clinical use. In global hemostasis assays, a number of barriers may prevent implementation and quality assurance. Quality assurance studies have observed that regular proficiency testing is needed to ensure accuracy of such methods Al Dieri R et al, Thromb Haemost. 2002; Strey RF et al, Pathophysiol Haemost Thromb. 2005; Schols SE et al, Thromb Haemost 2008; Rugeri L et al, Haemophilia 2010; Guegen P et al, Br J Haematol 2011; Riddell A et al, Thromb Haemost 2011: Van Geffen M et al, Haemophilia. 2012; Spiezia L et al, Haemophilia. 2012; Livnat T et al. Blood Coag Fibrynol 2012

28 Genotype characterization Currently based on the mutation search in the genes that encode each corresponding coagulation factor Exceptions: -combined deficiency of coagulation FV and FVIII (mutations in genes for FV and FVIII intracellular transport – MCFD2 and LMAN1) -combined deficiency of the vitamin-K-dependent proteins (mutations in genes for post-translational modifications and vitamin K metabolism (GGCX and VKORC1) Pattern of inheritance is autosomal recessive for all RBDs, except for some cases of FXI, where some missense mutations were shown to exert a dominant negative effect, and of dysfibrinogenemia

29 5-10% of patients remain with no identified genetic defect The use of next generation sequencing (NGS) might help to identify novel pathways in coagulation disorders While the potential of these genome-wide strategies is indisputable, these approaches have yet to be utilized in the analysis of RBDs for which causative mutations remain elusive Type of deficiencyGeneIndels (%)Missense (%)Nonsense (%)Splicing (%)3'-5' UTR (%) Fibrinogen FGA FGB FGG 20,957,311,57,52,8 FIIF21377,85,53,70 FVF527,348,512,911,30 FV+VIII LMAN1508,820,6 0 MCFD227,3504,518,20 FVIIF712,362,27,811,56,2 FXF1010,5801,97,60 FXIF1110,47010,58,20,9 FXIIIF132947,19,1140,8 Vit-K factors GGCX10600300 VKORC10100000 Peyvandi F et al.

34 Prophylaxis The choice of prophylaxis is related to: – the frequency of bleeding – the risk of severe spontaneous bleeding – the risk of long-term disabilities associated with the occurrence of bleeding in a particular region of the body despite on-demand treatment (e.g., CNS, GI and joint bleedings)

36 Due to the RBDs rarity, little information is available on the optimal management of patients with these disorders, particularly on long- term prophylaxis In addition, the technical limitations of laboratory testing, particularly in patients with factor activity <5%, make difficult to adopt the appropriate prophylactic treatment To overcome these limitations, new strategies are required: – creation of global partnerships – networking between treatment centers – increasing the support provided by public health organizations – Prospective data collection – Better and more sensitive assays Conclusion
