  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...

  Impaired postprandial lipoprotein metabolism has been found to be related to the extent of coronary artery disease. Moreover, sincedyslipoproteinemias are associated with impaired hemorrheology, we investigated the effect of postprandial hypertriglyceridemia on hemorrheologicalparameters before...

  Oral contraceptive (OC) steroids use has been associated with variable effects on blood lipid and rheological properties, and abnormal plasma lipidand hemorheological profiles has been shown to be in almost all conditions associated with accelerated atherosclerotic cardiovascular disorders. This...

  Fifteen cases of endometrial cancer were administered daily doses of 600 mg of MPA after surgery to prevent the recurrence of cancer. The initiation times of coagulation (time necessary for fibrin network formation) were measured with a highly sensitive damped oscillation rheometer and compared...

  In order to investigate the effect of fenofibrate on microcirculation, 16 patients (5 female, 11 male, age 58 +/- 8 years) were studied with the aid ofnailfold capillaroscopy before and after treatment with 200 mg fenofibrate per day over six weeks. Fenofibrate resulted in a significant decrease...

  The present study aimed at testing a possible relationship between hemorrheologic factors, such as hematocrit, fibrinogen, and whole-blood viscosity, and insulin sensitivity in healthy humans. Twenty-one 21-year-old men were studied with the hyperinsulinemic euglycemic glucose clamp technique. We...

  The newly developed antihypertensive drugs, the long-acting beta-blocker propranolol and the sustained release calcium antagonist verapamil, arecompared in their antihypertensive, platelet function, rheological properties and metabolic effects. The trial was a double-blind, randomised, placebo-...
