  OBJECTIVE: To determine whether furosemide treatment altered the blood flow properties and serum and RBC electrolyte concentrations of Thoroughbreds during submaximal treadmill exercise. DESIGN: Thoroughbreds were subjected to submaximal treadmill exercise with and without treatment with...

  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...

  AIM: To compare the effects of an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor and a thiazide diuretic on platelet function and haemorrheologicalvariables, since these factors may contribute to the atherosclerotic and thrombotic complications associated with hypertension. METHODS: Following a 2-...

  A study was carried out to investigate whether diltiazem influence blood rheology, as has been reported for some other calcium channel blockers. Twenty patients with clinical, stable angina pectoris were treated with 2 x 90 mg diltiazem per day for 2 weeks. Blood viscosity, plasma viscosity,...

  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...

  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...

  The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of consuming gilthead sea bream fillets, with different n-6/ n-3 ratios, on atherosclerotic biomarkers.Twenty healthy subjects were included in a randomised single-blinded cross-over trial. Participants were randomized into 2 groups, both of which...

    Thirteen heterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemic patients were treated with lovastatin for 1 year, and were investigated for the effect on lipid profile, blood rheology and fibrinogen levels. A significant dose-dependent reduction in serum levels of total and LDL-cholesterol, Apo B and the...

  To assess the effect of antihypertensive therapy on hemorheology in essential hypertension, blood viscosity and red blood cell deformability were examined in 45 patients with essential hypertension and 20 age-matched normotensive control subjects. Hypertensive patients were randomly assigned to...

  OBJECTIVE: To compare the effects of the ACE inhibitor perindopril and the beta-blocker carvedilol on blood pressure and endothelial functions inNIDDM patients with hypertension. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: We conducted a double-blind randomized trial in 26 patients with NIDDM and mild...
