Ischemic cardiopathy in its various clinical manifestations, whether acute (angina pectoris or myocardial infarction) or chronic (chronic coronary insufficiency), has shown in recent years particular hemorheological characteristics of its own. The observation of patients with such diseases has allowed us to record the existence of modifications in the(More)
Twenty-four patients with vascular disorders, randomly divided into 3 dosage groups of 8 patients, were treated with a single oral dose of sulodexide (50, 100 or 200mg) and placebo. Tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA), plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-1) activity and antigen, euglobulin lysis time, α2-antiplasmin, plasminogen, fibrinogen, blood and(More)
The authors report the results of a double-blind cross-over study on calcium dobesilate in which two groups of eight recent-onset type-II diabetics were treated either p.o. (1 g once daily) or i.v. (500 mg in 100 ml of physiological saline) with calcium dobesilate or with placebo. During oral administration of the drug, blood rheology and total fibrinolytic(More)
The acute (0.57 microg/kg i.v. in 2 hours) and long-term (0.57 microg/kg i.v. in 2 hours for 5 days over 4 weeks) effects of the PGE1 analogue alprostadil were studied in patients affected with intermittent claudication. Whole Blood Viscosity (WBV), Whole Blood Filterability (WBF), haematocrit (Htc) and fibrinogen plasma concentration, were studied together(More)
INTRODUCTION Inflammatory myopathies (such as dermatomyositis and polymyositis) are well-recognized paraneoplastic syndromes. However, paraneoplastic necrotizing myopathy is a more recently defined clinical entity, characterized by rapidly progressive, symmetrical, predominantly proximal muscle weakness with severe disability, and associated with a marked(More)
Five repeated submaximal treadmill exercises at 2 h intervals following a maximal test prolong walking distance and reduce haemorheological derangement in a second maximal test in patients affected with peripheral obliterative arterial disease (POAD). An increase in adenosine plasma levels is observed during maximal tests, thus suggesting the possibility of(More)
Regular physical exercise improves walking performance in patients affected with peripheral obliterative arterial disease (POAD). The mechanisms underlying the phenomenon are still controversial. In order to verify the hypothesis that physical conditioning of lower limbs on a treadmill and ischemic preconditioning of the heart could share some biological(More)
Pre-treatment with allopurinol is able markedly to attenuate the deterioration in blood viscosity (BV) and whole blood filterability (WBF) that occurs after ischaemia during exercise. It also reduces the exercise-induced increase in serum oxidase activity, although this action is slightly less effective in peripheral obliterative arterial disease (POAD)(More)
