Vasopressin Factor VIII
Von Willebrand factor is a blood glycoprotein involved in hemostasis. It is deficient or defective in von Willebrand disease and is involved in a large number of other diseases, including thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, Heyde's syndrome, and possibly hemolytic-uremic syndrome. Increased plasma levels in a large number of cardiovascular, neoplastic and connective tissue diseases are presumed to arise from adverse changes to the endothelium, and may contribute to an increased risk of thrombosis.
The effect of DDAVP on plasma levels of von Willebrand antigen II in normal individuals and patients with von Willebrand's disease. 1984
The infusion of 1-deamino-(8-D-arginine)-vasopressin (DDAVP) causes not only an elevation in factor VIII-related antigen (FVIIIR:Ag), but also a marked elevation of plasma von Willebrand antigen II (vWAgII). vWAgII reaches a peak concentration at 60 min and is elevated 3-8-fold over basal levels in normal individuals and individuals with type I, IIA, and IIB von Willebrand's disease.
