The aim of our study was to assess whether the development of chronic uremia in rats with extensive renal mass ablation was associated with an impairment of primary hemostasis as occurs in humans with terminal uremia. We also wanted to assess whether uremic rats had an increased generation of vascular prostacyclin (PGI2) and whether conjugated estrogens(More)

Group 1 received no specific therapy. Group 2 was treated with ticlopidine, 150 mg/kg per os, for 50 days starting 10 days after surgical ablation. Group 3 was given the(More)

Previous studies have demonstrated that these changes are associated with an increased urinary excretion of thromboxane compared with normal rats and that the administration of a thromboxane synthetase inhibitor prevents glomerulosclerosis and(More)
