Bromelain Normalizes the Enzymes In Blood Clots.

By Kyle J. Norton

Fibrinolysis is the condition associated with the enzymatic breakdown of the fibrin in blood clots.

Where fibrin plays an essential role in hemostasis as both the primary product of the coagulation cascade of fibrinolysis.

In other words, fibrinolysis is a process that prevents blood clots from growing to induce certain health problems such as cardiovascular disease.

Platelet aggregation is a condition characterized by platelets clumping together in the blood. The process also is necessary for the cover of vascular injury. However, overexpression of platelet counts in the blood is problematic to human health.

In other words, the production of blood platelets is to protect tissue injury against infection.
Furthermore, platelet disorders can lead to abnormal bleeding. Most common types of the genetic proposition of platelet disorders including

* Disorder of platelet adhesion, also known as Bernard-Soulier Syndrome is a condition in which the platelets fail to adhere together, leading to frequent bruises, nose bleeds and bleeding in the mouth and gums.

* Disorder of platelet aggregation also known as Glanzmann Thrombasthenia is a condition that the platelets not only fail to cover at the site of an injury but also prolong the bleeding.

* Disorder of platelet secretion is a condition which causes the slows down normal platelet adhesion, aggregation, and repair of the blood vessel.

* Disorder of platelets procoagulant activity, also know as Scott Syndrome is a condition in which the platelets fail to promote activation of the blood clotting proteins.

Conventionally, certain medication with blood thinning activity such as aspirin (ASA) and other drugs containing aspirin non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and some antibiotics may have a strong implication of the formation of platelets coagulation.

Dr. Wolberg AS in the examination of fibrinolysis in the changes on the local concentrations of pro- and anti-coagulants and cellular activities may affect the clot-forming wrote, “patterns of abnormal thrombin generation produce clots with altered fibrin structure and that these changes are associated with an increased risk of bleeding or thrombosis”.

These results strongly outline the importance of fibrin in the formation of a blood clot in the presence of thrombin that the converts fibrinogen to fibrin.

Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme found in pineapples (Ananas comosus) has been used in traditional medicine as an inflammatory agent and to treat pains, strains, and muscle aches and pains and ease back pain and chronic joint pain, skin diseases, etc.

On finding a potential compound for the treatment of fibrinolysis, researchers examined the influence of bromelain on platelet count, platelet aggregation and platelet activity in vitro.

The study included blood samples taken from the antecubital vein of 10 healthy male non-smokers. 
According to the tested observation, platelet count decreased after incubation with 2.5 and 5 mg bromelain/ml.
The levels of ADP and TRAP-6 associated with platelet aggregation  were inhibited after incubation with 2.5 mg or 5 mg compared to control. 

Interestingly, according to the flow cytometry, the percentage of the total number of platelets or unstimulated CD62P positive platelets.

In other words, under normal condition, bromelain does not have any effect on unstimulated CD62P positive platelets even with higher incubation with 5 mg bromelain/ml compared to control.

However, after TRAP-6 stimulation with platelet aggregation, the incubation with 5 mg bromelain/ml led to a remarkable decrease, compared to the untreated control.

The changes of CD62P (TRAP-stimulated) and the results of platelet aggregation after incubation with bromelain in vitro may demonstrate the potential of bromelain as a substance for platelet inhibition.

Based on the findings, researchers said, “The changes of CD62P (TRAP-stimulated) and the results of platelet aggregation after incubation with bromelain in vitro may demonstrate the potential of bromelain as a substance for platelet inhibition”.

These results suggested that bromelain have a strong effect on the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease associated with platelet aggregation.

Taken altogether, bromelain may be considered a remedy for the prevention and treatment of fibrinolysis,, pending to the confirmation of the larger sample size and multicenter human study.
