  In most studies fish-oil had been administered by enteral route. Recently an parenteral marine fish-oil emulsion has been developed. With anintravenous infusion an immediate effect on the membrane lipid composition of circulating blood cells and endothelial cells may be expected. In thisstudy we...

  A study was carried out to compare the whole blood and plasma viscosities in 11 patients with rheumatoid arthritis treated with hydroxychloroquine to the corresponding values in 10 patients with rheumatoid arthritis treated with either sodium aurothiomalate or D-penicillamine to determine whether...

  The purpose of the study was to determine the relationship between hemorheological profile, i.e. blood viscosity, and other risk factors for cardiovascular and thrombotic diseases in women taking oral contraceptives and if blood viscosity may be considered a marker of cardiovascular risk in OC...

  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 haemorheological effects of felodipine extended release (ER), a new dihydropyridine calcium antagonist, were compared withhydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) in 28 mild to moderate hypertensives (18 men and 10 women, aged 30-70 years) in a randomized, double-blind,crossover trial. Antihypertensive...

  To evaluate the effects of short-term cholesterol-lowering treatment on myocardial effort ischemia, 22 patients with stable effort ischemia and mild tomoderate hypercholesterolemia (low density lipoprotein [LDL] cholesterol 160 to 220 mg/dl) were randomly allocated at baseline (TO) in 2 groups....

  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...

  A study was carried out to evaluate the clinical and haematological effects of dietary supplementation with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)-rich fish oil(MaxEPA', 2.8 g EPA daily) compared to placebo (olive oil) in 10 patients with stable angina pectoris. After 3 months, there was a significant...

  The increased viscosity of blood of hypertensive patients can be assumed to be a risk factor for the development of cardiovascular diseases. The aimof the present study was to elucidate whether anti-hypertensive treatment has any impact on blood rheology. Twenty patients with previously untreated...

  BACKGROUND: Abnormalities in blood rheology may be factors contributing to cardiovascular complications and the progression of renal failure inkidney allograft recipients. The haemorheological variables haematocrit, fibrinogen, whole blood viscosity, plasma viscosity, erythrocyte...
