Effects of Furosemide on Hemorheologic Alterations Induced by Incremental Treadmill Exercise in Thoroughbreds.
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 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...

Effects of Lisinopril and Hydrochlorothiazide on Platelet Function and Blood Rheology in Essential Hypertension: A Randomly Allocated Double-Blind Study.
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-...

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...

The Atherosclerotic Risk Profile is Affected Differently by Fish Flesh With a Similar EPA and DHA Content but Different N-6/N-3 Ratio.
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...

Lovastatin Therapy in Heterozygous Familial Hypercholesterolaemic Patients: Effect on Blood Rheology and Fibrinogen Levels.
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...

Effects of Perindopril and Carvedilol on Endothelium-Dependent Vascular Functions in Patients With Diabetes and Hypertension.
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...
