  In addition to their effects on blood pressure, antihypertensive agents may produce additional effects on blood rheology and arterial complianceabnormalities which may play a role in target-organ damage. However, these effects may depend only on the specific pharmacological properties of certain...

  In spite of the recent flurry of interest in n-3 fatty acids, haemorheological effects have been somewhat neglected. When quantifying blood rheology bymeans of blood viscosity, plasma viscosity, haematocrit, red cell deformability and red cell aggregation measurements, it is observed that all...

  The haemorheological effects of felodipine extended release (ER), a new dihydropyridine calcium antagonist, were compared withhydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) in 28 mild to moderate hypertensives (18 men and 10 women, aged 30-70 years) in a randomized, double-blind,crossover trial. Antihypertensive...

  This study was designed to examine changes of hemorheological parameters and red cell aggregation particularly in essential arterial hypertensionsubjects receiving antihypertensive diuretic therapy. Fifty six female subjects were enrolled in this study. Thirty seven subjects (group I) were...

  Eight volunteers received lignocaine 75 mg i.m. Peak plasma lignocaine concentrations (mean 0.80 microgram ml-1; range 0.31-1.86 micrograms ml-1) were attained at 30 min. Haematocrit and red cell deformability remained unchanged. Lignocaine caused small but significant decreases in plasma...

  The present study in female rats determined the effects of experimental hyperthyroidsm on hemorheological parameters and fibrinogen concentration. To induce experimental hyperthyroidism L-thyroxine (0.4 mg/100 g fodder) was added to the fodder of the experimental group rats for 20 d....

  Pravastatin has neuroprotective effects against aging but its role in brain injury remains unclear. This study evaluated the effects of pravastatin on theultrastructural changes and hemorheological parameters in rats after traumatic brain injury (TBI) of right parietal cortical contusion by a...

  Eighteen patients with familial hypercholesterolemia treated with lovastatin (40 mg/day) for three months were studied to find out whether the drug induces modifications in the lipid composition of the erythrocyte membrane and whether these induce changes in the rheological behaviour of the red...

  Recently the phenomenon of aspirin resistance has been object of several studies, but no data are available on the possible role of thehaemorheologic parameters in affecting platelet function and resistance to antiplatelet agents. Aim of our study was to evaluate platelet function and...

  We have examined, in normal subjects, the effects of a daily dietary supplement of fish oil concentrate ('maxEPA'), providing 3 g of omega-3 fattyacids, on erythrocyte membrane phospholipids, erythrocyte deformability and blood viscosity. After 3 weeks, incorporation of C20:5 omega 3...
