  Peripheral artery disease is associated with altered blood rheologic properties, including increased viscosity and decreased red blood cell (RBC)deformability. Pentoxifylline and cilostazol are available therapies for intermittent claudication. Improvement of blood viscosity and erythrocyte...

  A clinical investigation was undertaken of the haemorheological effects of short-term administration of synthetic sex hormones. In a randomisedcontrolled investigative trial, groups of 20 women taking ethynyloestradiol, norethisterone, combined norgestrel and ethynyloestradiol or no therapy had...

  Oral contraceptive (OC) use and increased fructose feeding have been associated with altered cardiometabolic effects. The effect of increased dietaryfructose during OC use on cardiometabolic parameters is unknown. We investigated the effects of a high-fructose diet on body weight gain, fasting...

  The role of hemostatic variables (which promote hemostatic plugs and thrombi) and rheological variables (which affect blood flow) in the pathogenesisof vascular diseases (ischemic heart disease, stroke, and peripheral arterial disease) is reviewed, with emphasis on epidemiological studies....

  Elevated plasma homocysteine (Hcy), dyslipidemia and hemorheological abnormalities all occur commonly in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and are recognized risk factors for arteriosclerosis. To study the effect of folate supplementation on these factors we conducted a randomized controlled trial....

  Plasma fibrinogen and hemorheologic-hemostatic factors contribute to dyslipidemia-induced morbidity. Some of these parameters can be favorablyaffected when abnormal serum lipoprotein levels are corrected. Thus, we investigated whether treatment with atorvastatin would result in changes inplasma...

  We hypothesized that correction of insulin deficiency by pulsatile intravenous insulin infusion in type 1 diabetes mellitus patients with nephropathy preserves renal function by mechanisms involving cardiac autonomic function, cardiac mass, or efficiency, or by hemostatic mechanisms. The control...

  To determine the hemorheological effects of oral contraceptives, 50 healthy young women took no medication for 3 cycles. Subsequently they were randomized into group A and B. Group A took Diane-35, B took Microgynon each for 6 cycles. Finally 3 cycles without medication followed. Blood viscosity...

  OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of transdermal oestrogen replacement therapy on the haemostatic balance of menopausal women. DESIGN: Open, parallel group, prospective study. SETTING: Three hospital-based menopause clinics. SUBJECTS: Fifty-two postmenopausal women receiving transdermal hormone...
