The aim of this study was to test the effects of Ilex kudingcha total saponins on hemorheology of ApoE-/- mice suffering from hypercholesterolemia induced by high-cholesterol diet. The mice were randomly divided into six groups: the control group, the high-cholesterol diet group, 50 mg/kg...

Effect of Treatment on Retinal Circulation, Platelet Aggregation and Blood Viscosity in Insulin-Dependent and Noninsulin-Dependent Diabetics.
In order to investigate the influence of diabetic treatment, especially insulin treatment on diabetic retinopathy, disc-to-macula circulation time, platelet aggregation and blood viscosity were observed before and after treatment for 5 years in 42 diabetics (17 insulin-dependent diabetics [IDD]...
Whole blood and plasma viscosity, red cell aggregability and deformability, and plasma fibrinogen have been compared between 20 patients withheterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH), without clinical arterial disease, and 20 age- and sex-matched controls. Plasma fibrinogen was elevated in...

The Effect of Simvastatin Therapy on Hemorheological Profile in Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) Patients.
This study was designed to examine changes of hemorheological parameters in patients with CHD and hypercholesterolaemia (wide range of plasmatotal cholesterol level from 5.6 to 9.8 mmol.l-1) subjected to lipid lowering therapy with statins (simvastatin, 10.0-20.0 mg/day, dosage was dependenton an...

Transdermal nitroglycerin (Nitroderm TTS 5) and a placebo were applied to 10 healthy male volunteers for 10 days. Before the first application and 6, 24, 48, 96, and 240 h thereafter, the viscosity of plasma and whole blood was measured and the packed-cell volume determined. During...

Influence of a Parenteral Fish-Oil Preparation (Omegaven) on Erythrocyte Morphology and Blood Viscosity In Vitro.
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...
Effect of Buflomedil, Dipyridamole and Indobufene on Hemorrheologic and Blood Coagulation Parameters in Patients Who Underwent Vascular Surgery for Severe Atherosclerosis.
We studied 30 patients (age range 58 to 64 years) who underwent vascular surgery for peripheral vascular disease (24 patients) and for carotid stenosis (6 patients). At the time of the study, all subjects have been taking antiplatelet agents for at least three months. They were divided into three...

The Effects of Renal Ischemia-Reperfusion on Hemorheological Factors: Preventive Role of Allopurinol.
Changes in hemorheological parameters were studied in dogs following unilateral renal artery clamping (45-minute ischemia then reperfusion), with and without preoperative administration of allopurinol. Sham-operated animals were also evaluated. Blood samples were collected preoperatively, at...

Effects of Felodipine ER and Hydrochlorothiazide on Blood Rheology in Essential Hypertension--A Randomized, Double-Blind, Crossover Study.
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...
