Abstract

The changes in plasma levels of the vitamin K-dependent natural anticoagulants protein C (PC) and protein S (PS) and procoagulant factors II, IX and X were evaluated in 8 adult patients during treatment with L-asparaginase (L-ase i.v. 120,000 U/m2 over 10 days). PC anticoagulant activity and factor IX, X and II coagulant activity decreased proportionally to their half-lives to a nadir of 50-60% of pretreatment values after 2-5 L-ase infusions, suggesting that inhibition of protein synthesis rather than consumption is the main mechanism responsible for the observed changes. Free PS antigen levels declined at a rate similar to total PS antigen, reaching a nadir of 56% of pretreatment values after 3 L-ase infusions; however, due to C4b-binding protein levels higher than total PS levels (p
