  In spite of the recent flurry of interest in n-3 fatty acids, haemorheological effects have been somewhat neglected. When quantifying blood rheology bymeans of blood viscosity, plasma viscosity, haematocrit, red cell deformability and red cell aggregation measurements, it is observed that all...

  Oral contraceptive (OC) steroids use has been associated with variable effects on blood lipid and rheological properties, and abnormal plasma lipidand hemorheological profiles has been shown to be in almost all conditions associated with accelerated atherosclerotic cardiovascular disorders. This...

  Eight volunteers received lignocaine 75 mg i.m. Peak plasma lignocaine concentrations (mean 0.80 microgram ml-1; range 0.31-1.86 micrograms ml-1) were attained at 30 min. Haematocrit and red cell deformability remained unchanged. Lignocaine caused small but significant decreases in plasma...

  Increased blood viscosity facilitates the formation of thrombosis. This is an important risk factor in the occurrence of cerebral infarctions. The presentstudy was undertaken to elucidate whether docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) inhibits blood viscosity, hematocrit and fibrinogen in the disease...

  An open, prospective study was undertaken to investigate the effects of enalapril on hemorheology in patients with renal disease and complicatinghypertension. Cellular and plasma determinants of blood viscosity and renal function were measured in 19 patients at baseline and 2, 60 and 120days...

  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-...

  We have examined, in normal subjects, the effects of a daily dietary supplement of fish oil concentrate ('maxEPA'), providing 3 g of omega-3 fattyacids, on erythrocyte membrane phospholipids, erythrocyte deformability and blood viscosity. After 3 weeks, incorporation of C20:5 omega 3...

  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...

  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...
