Effects of Atorvastatin Versus Fenofibrate on Lipoprotein Profiles, Low-Density Lipoprotein Subfraction Distribution, and Hemorheologic Parameters in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus With Mixed Hyperlipoproteinemia.
Diabetic dyslipoproteinemia characterized by hypertriglyceridemia, low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and often elevated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol with predominance of small, dense LDL is a strong risk factor for atherosclerosis. It is unclear whether fibrate or...

Reports suggest that the low incidence of ischaemic heart disease in Greenlandic Eskimos is related to the effect of a diet rich in eicosapentaenoicacid on platelet reactivity and plasma lipid concentrations. A double blind randomised investigation was therefore conducted of the effects on...

Relationship Between Plasma Essential Fatty Acids and Smoking, Serum Lipids, Blood Pressure and Haemostatic and Rheological Factors.
We aimed to determine whether levels of plasma fatty acids are correlated with other potential risk factors for cardiovascular disease, using a sampleof patients from a cross-sectional survey of the general population, in the City of Edinburgh. 306 men and women aged 55-74 years of whom half...

Effect of Low-Dose Oral Triphasic Contraceptives on Blood Viscosity, Coagulation and Lipid Metabolism.
The purpose of the study was to determine the relationship between hemorheological profile, i.e. blood viscosity, and other risk factors for cardiovascular and thrombotic diseases in women taking oral contraceptives and if blood viscosity may be considered a marker of cardiovascular risk in OC...

Capillary Microscopy and Hemorheology in Children During Antiepileptic Monotherapy With Carbamazepine and Valproate.
The interactions of epilepsy and antiepileptic therapy an one hand and cardiovascular system on the other hand are multiple and complex. Antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) cause alterations of serum lipids and of the fatty acid composition of the membranes. Homocystein, known to induce vascular...

Effects of Fish Oil Capsules in Two Dosages on Blood Pressure, Platelet Functions, Haemorheological and Clinical Chemistry Parameters in Apparently Healthy Subjects.
The effects of a fish oil concentrate with an omega-3 fatty acid content of 42% was determined in two dosages in a double-blind, placebo-controlledstudy with a parallel group comparison over a period of 5 weeks with 30 healthy subjects. The daily intake chosen was four and eight...

Postprandial Hemorrheology and Apolipoprotein B Metabolism in Patients With Familial Hypertriglyceridemia.
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...

Androgen Supplementation in Eugonadal Men With Osteoporosis-Effects of 6 Months of Treatment on Bone Mineral Density and Cardiovascular Risk Factors.
This open, prospective therapeutic trial studied the effects of regular moderate androgen supplementation on bone mineral density in eugonadal men with established osteoporosis, and collected data on the safety of androgen therapy used in this setting. 23 men, aged 34-73 years, with vertebral...

Failure of Pentoxifylline or Cilostazol to Improve Blood and Plasma Viscosity, Fibrinogen, and Erythrocyte Deformability in Claudication.
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...

Effects of Fish-Oil Ingestion on Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Hyperlipidemic Subjects in Israel: A Randomized, Double-Blind Crossover Study.
Effects of a daily fish-oil supplement on serum lipids, apolipoproteins, and some platelet functions and hemorheologic variables were examined in 27hyperlipidemic subjects in a randomized, controlled, double-blind, crossover fashion with an identically encapsulated vegetable oil serving as...
