  The effects of statins have been investigated mostly in hyperlipidemic states so far. We analysed blood cholesterol, triglyceride, albumin, fibrinogenand gammaglobulin levels, haematocrite, hemoglobin, erythrocyte, leukocyte and platelet counts, blood and plasma viscosity and erythrocyte...

  Twelve type I (insulin-dependent) diabetic subjects in stable metabolic control for at least 3 mo received a controlled diet containing 50%carbohydrate, 35% fat, and 15% protein. Calorie intake varied from 1800 to 2200 calories, depending on individual needs. Part of the polyunsaturatedomega-6...

  Haemorheological changes have been described in hypertension as well as in diabetes mellitus. Antihypertensive treatment improves rheology inhypertensive patients. The aim of this study was to describe the haemorheological profile and its impact on shear stress in hypertensive type 2 diabetes...

  The present study in female rats determined the effects of experimental hyperthyroidsm on hemorheological parameters and fibrinogen concentration. To induce experimental hyperthyroidism L-thyroxine (0.4 mg/100 g fodder) was added to the fodder of the experimental group rats for 20 d....

  As part of a randomized, single-blind, comparative study evaluating the efficacy of lovastatin and bezafibrate retard in the treatment of primaryhypercholesterolemia, hemorheologic parameters (whole blood viscosity, hematocrit, plasma viscosity, red blood cell aggregation and deformability, and...

  Primary familial forms of chylomicronemia can lead to acute life-threatening complications, especially acute pancreatitis. The main aim of therapy is toavoid this so-called chylomicronemia syndrome. In 12 patients with primary chylomicronemia due to familial hypertriglyceridemia, the addition of...

  Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) apheresis is a treatment option in patients with coronary artery disease and elevated LDL cholesterol concentrations ifmaximal drug therapy fails to achieve adequate LDL cholesterol reduction. This therapy is more effective when combined with strong lipid-lowering...

  Raloxifene, the prototype of the selective estrogen receptor modulators, has been associated with an increased risk of venous thromboembolism. As hemorheological factors may be involved in thrombus formation this placebo-controlled study investigated whether raloxifene was associated with changes...

  To determine the effect of atorvastatin on blood rheology in patients with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) on regular LDL apheresis, weprospectively studied the rheological variables fibrinogen, plasma viscosity, red cell aggregation, whole blood viscosity, hematocrit and plateletaggregation...
Type: Abstracts
  The effects of acute morphine administration on intact erythrocytes and on their flow properties were studied by measuring the mean cell volume, cell geometry, and whole blood and plasma viscosities. Morphine caused a small (2-7%) increase in mean cell volume. Changes in cell geometry were found...
