Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune, chronic inflammatory, non-organ specific disease. SLE patients present a high prevalence of thrombotic and arteriosclerotic disease. The aim of the present work was to study the erythrocyte aggregation kinetics, and the effect of plasma...
Rheological blood behavior in primary Sjögren's syndrome (SS) has been scarcely investigated. We evaluated the rheological profile (blood viscosity, plasma viscosity, erythrocyte deformability, erythrocyte aggregation, erythrocyte aggregation time and erythrocyte disaggregation threshold) along...
Background: Statins are used for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. Although they are well known to have pleiotropic effects, their dose-dependent influence on platelet aggregation, hemorheologic properties and the plasma levels of homocysteine in patients with peripheral arterial disease...
The determination of an optimal haematocrit (H0) has important clinical implications if such a level can be attained, and more importantly, maintained. This is defined as a haematocrit level, above or below which oxygen delivery is deleteriously affected. This study is designed to determine an...
Purpose: The aim of this study was to clarify whether exercising in a tropical climate induces blood rheology alterations despite ad libitum hydration. Methods: Hematological, biochemical and hemorheological changes were investigated in young healthy adults (N = 9 men, 20.7 ± 0.8 yrs) after a...
Introduction: Soluble CD40L (sCD40L) is expressed by platelets and is involved in the stabilization of arterial thrombi. Additionally, it was shown that sCD40L accumulation occurred in stored blood products triggering adverse transfusion reactions like TRALI. To study the influence of the...
A new method is described in this paper that allows measurement of red blood cell (RBC) aggregation indexes in disposable glass tubes within minutes. Light transmission through the RBC suspension filled into a microhematocrit capillary at stasis is recorded during RBC aggregation; a novel method...
