The intravenous anaesthetic propofol has been associated with cardiovascular side effects. We therefore studied its influence on blood viscosity, erythrocytes and platelet aggregation. Blood from healthy volunteers was incubated with propofol concentrations of 0, 5, 10, 20, 40, 80, 200, and 500 microg/ml plasma. Whole blood viscosity (shear rates 94.5 and(More)
The effects of propionyl-L-carnitine (PLC) on isolated mitochondrial respiration in the ischemic reperfused diabetic heart were studied. Oral PLC treatment of STZ-diabetic rats was initiated for a period of 6 weeks. After treatment, isolated working hearts from diabetic rats were perfused under aerobic conditions then subjected to 25 min of no-flow ischemia(More)
