  OBJECTIVES: To investigate possible associations between smoking habits and other coronary risk factors in postmenopausal women with knowncoronary heart disease (CHD). SETTING: The study was conducted at a university clinic. SUBJECTS: A total of 118 postmenopausal women with CHD verified with...

  The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of consuming gilthead sea bream fillets, with different n-6/ n-3 ratios, on atherosclerotic biomarkers.Twenty healthy subjects were included in a randomised single-blinded cross-over trial. Participants were randomized into 2 groups, both of which...

  We have previously found improved insulin sensitivity after antihypertensive treatment with an angiotensin II-receptor blocker as compared with acalcium channel blocker in hypertensives. In this study, we compare the effect of these 2 principal different vasodilating agents on levels of...

  The Carvedilol Acute Myocardial Infarction Study (CAMIS) investigates cardiac remodeling in patients (n = 250) randomized to carvedilol vs atenololand treated for 12 months after acute myocardial infarction. In a sub-study, we compared sympathetic, hemorrheological and vascular effects in small...

  INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE: Haemorrheological parameters and endothelial function are known to be altered in vascular diseases, including stroke. Treatment with HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors ('statins') improves cerebrovascular (and cardiovascular) morbidity and mortality in patients with...

  Since fish oil has been reported to reduce platelet aggregability, to reduce blood viscosity by increasing red blood cell deformability and to lower blood pressure, we studied the effect of dietary supplementation with fish oil on the occurrence of adverse effects in patients receiving...

  The usefulness of Clopidogrel as inhibitor of platelet aggregation has been demonstrated, but its effect on hemoreological parameters, such as whole blood viscosity at low and high shear rate, red cell aggregation and deformability indexes, filterability rate and and deformability of red blood...

  Furosemide is a diuretic agent which is often given in high concentration intravenously. Since erythrocytes have a furosemide-sensitive transport system and oral application of furosemide was found to induce an echinocytic shape transformation in horses, we have analysed the influence...

  Since oral contraceptives (OC) are known to impair blood fluidity and to increase the risk of venous and arterial thrombosis, while acetylsalicylic acid(ASA) decreases the thrombotic risk and modifies some rheologic parameters, we compared the hemorheologic effects of ASA on blood rheologybetween...
Type: Abstracts
  Beyond their effects on blood pressure, antihypertensive agents may produce additional effects on blood rheology and arterial complianceabnormalities which may play a role in the target organ damage. These effects may depend only on their specific pharmacological properties. We compared the...
