  When horses maximally exercise, splenic contraction and fluid movement out of the vascular compartment greatly increase the hematocrit (up to 0.70). We studied the in vitro rheological characteristics of blood from Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses to determine the interaction of hematocrit and...

  The effect of terahertz electromagnetic radiation at the emission and absorption frequencies of NO molecular spectrum on blood rheology were studied in vitro in patients with unstable angina treated with isoket (NO donor). Irradiated NO donor isoket produced better normalizing effect on...

  Blood was taken from 49 Thoroughbred horses before and after racing at the track to determine if frusemide modified the apparent viscosity of theblood and to determine the effects of changes in shear rate and packed cell volume (PCV), associated with strenuous exercise, on apparent and relative...

  The effect of propranolol treatment was investigated in the myocardial ischemia-induced hyperviscosity state in anesthetized dogs. In untreated control dogs, low shear blood viscosity rose progressively, following an acute occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery; this effect was...

  A clinical investigation was undertaken of the haemorheological effects of short-term administration of synthetic sex hormones. In a randomisedcontrolled investigative trial, groups of 20 women taking ethynyloestradiol, norethisterone, combined norgestrel and ethynyloestradiol or no therapy had...
