  The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of transdermal hormone replacement therapy on some biological cardiovascular risk factors,specifically the thromboxane B2 levels, plasma viscosity and the lipid profile. Furthermore, we investigated the Doppler flow modifications at the level of...

  Since fish oil has been reported to reduce platelet aggregability, to reduce blood viscosity by increasing red blood cell deformability and to lower blood pressure, we studied the effect of dietary supplementation with fish oil on the occurrence of adverse effects in patients receiving...

  Effects of dietary supplementation with highly purified EPA (1.8-2.7 g/day) for 16 weeks on platelet and red blood cell function and serum lipidsconcentration were investigated in patients with various thrombotic diseases. Decreases in platelet aggregation, thromboxane formation in platelets,...

  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 average daily consumption of seal oil by the Inuit people is approximately 8-9 g, yet there is very little information on the effect of seal oil consumption on cardiovascular disease risk factors. In this study, 19 healthy, normocholesterolemic subjects consumed 20 g of encapsulated seal oil...

  The possible antiatherogenic action of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) was pharmacologically investigated using purified and ethylesterified fish oilcontaining 75% EPA (EPA-E) in multiple oral doses in rats and rabbits. EPA-E showed dose-dependent prevention of thrombus formation in a vascular shunt...

  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...

  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-...

  The nutritional effects of fish oil, which is rich in the n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, have been reported. In this randomized, placebo-controlled,double-blind, crossover study, we evaluated the effects of dietary fish oil capsules on the hematological parameters of healthy middle-aged...
