Whole blood viscosity (WBV) and hematometric indices of erythrocytes as red blood cell count (RBC), mean erythrocyte volume (MCV), hemoglobin (HGB), hematocrit (HCT), mean hemoglobin content of erythrocytes (MCH), HGB/HCT values (MCHC) and red blood cell distribution width (RDW) have been studied...

Ileum-Targeted Steroid Therapy in Rheumatoid Arthritis: Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial of Controlled-Release Budesonide.
In order to determine whether budesonide, which is believed to exert most of its anti-inflammatory effects in the intestinal tract, has a beneficial effecton disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), we treated 26 patients with active RA in double-blind fashion with either controlled ileal-...

Pentagastrin-Induced Hemoconcentration in Healthy Volunteers and Patients With Panic Disorder: Effect of Pretreatment With Ethinyl Estradiol.
Panic disorder has been associated with both an increased risk of coronary events as well as an increased risk of stroke. Hemoconcentration, with both a decrease in plasma volume and an increase in plasma viscosity, is a possible contributor to the risk of acute ischemic events. Our objectives...

An open, prospective study was undertaken to investigate the effects of enalapril on hemorheology in patients with renal disease and complicatinghypertension. Cellular and plasma determinants of blood viscosity and renal function were measured in 19 patients at baseline and 2, 60 and 120days...

The effects of furosemide and pentoxifylline on blood flow properties in horses were investigated. Hematologic and rheologic changes were examined in 4 horses before and 3 minutes after administration of epinephrine (1 mg, IV). The next day, hemorheologic changes were determined before and 3...

Clinical trials in RA usually involve the use of several laboratory assessments of disease activity. Their use is not universal and the relative value of many novel assessments has not been determined in relation to existing clinical and laboratory methods. This study attempts to investigate the...

Variations in Blood Viscosity in Patients with Acute Cardiogenic Pulmonary Oedema Treated with Frusemide.
In 10 patients with acute cardiogenic pulmonary oedema, treatment with large doses of intravenous frusemide (mean dose 156 mg) induced no signs of haemoconcentration. On the contrary, during an observation period of 2 h after start of treatment we registered a significant reduction of meanblood...

In a prospective open study, 18 patients with active rheumatoid arthritis were treated with phenytoin (300 mg/day) for 32 weeks. Clinical assessments improved significantly and there was no relapse 8 weeks after drug withdrawal. Serum C-reactive protein, plasma viscosity and hemoglobin also...
A Pilot Study to Test The Effect of Pulsatile Insulin Infusion on Cardiovascular Mechanisms That Might Contribute to Attenuation of Renal Compromise in Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus Patients With Proteinuria.
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...

The Short-Term Effect of Intravenous Nitroglycerin on Haematocrit; an Additional Benefit in Patients With Myocardial Ischaemia?
Organic nitrates exert their effect by direct inhibition of vascular tone, resulting in decreased myocardial oxygen demand and improved oxygen supply. Less well known is the effect of nitrates on blood rheology. To evaluate the haemodiluting effect of intravenous nitroglycerin we studied 70...
