BACKGROUND: Previous research has shown fluid replacement beverages ingested after exercise can affect hydration biomarkers. No specific hydration marker is universally accepted as an ideal rehydration parameter following strenuous exercise. Currently, changes in body mass are used as a parameter...
The Effects of Furosemide and Pentoxifylline on The Flow Properties of Equine Erythrocytes: in Vitro Studies.
The effects of various concentrations of furosemide and pentoxifylline on equine RBC in vitro were evaluated to facilitate better understanding of the potential effects of these drugs on blood flow properties. Furosemide induced increased mean cell volume (MCV), increased RBC potassium...

The purpose of this in vitro study was to assess the effect of 17beta-estradiol on hemorheologic parameters, namely on erythrocyte aggregation anddeformability and membrane fluidity. Blood samples from 65 women (aged 57 +/- 4 years) undergoing postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy were...
