Platelet and clotting abnormalities have been described in diabetes, but little is known about their relationship to daily stresses. In order to evaluate whether states of abnormal carbohydrate metabolism modify the hemostatic response to stress, 12 subjects with type I diabetes mellitus, 9 with type II, 7 with impaired glucose tolerance and 10 healthy(More)
Fibrinopeptide A (FPA) levels have been assayed in 10 normal subjects using a radioimmunoassay (RIA-mat FPA Mallinckrodt). Mean values were 0,97 +/- 0,46 ng/ml. The variation coefficient of the test was 4,82%. The method is well standardized and seems to be useful in the diagnosis of venous thrombosis and in the control of heparin treatment. It seems to be(More)
Erythrocyte deformability is one of the most important factors on determining blood viscosity. Many microcirculation damages are caused by alteration of viscosity. We propose a method for evaluate erythrocyte filtration using Nucleopore membranes, to study erythrocyte deformability. Normal ranges are calculated in young healthy subjects. Mean filtration(More)
