In 103 patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) of the lower limbs, coagulation and fibrinolytic parameters were evaluated to identify hemostatic abnormalities characteristic of this patient population. PAD was defined as clinically stable Leriche stage 2 (based on clinical history, peripheral pulses, ankle-arm index, and treadmill test) for at least(More)
A single-blind, randomized controlled study was conducted to assess and compare the antihypertensive effectiveness and the effects on glucose tolerance and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone balance of nitrendipine (Bay e 5009), a new dihydropyridine calcium antagonist, and clonidine. Twenty-six outpatients with uncomplicated mild to moderate essential(More)
This was a random double-blind study versus placebo designed to assess the effectiveness and tolerability of defibrotide in patients with chronic peripheral vascular disease (PVD), Leriche stage II. A total of 20 male outpatients (mean age 58.8 years) were selected and treated with placebo for 2 weeks (run-in period), and then allocated randomly to(More)
Twenty outpatients presenting with Raynaud's phenomenon secondary to clinical or preclinical inflammation of connective tissue were treated orally with defibrotide 400 mg three times daily or a matching placebo in a randomized double-blind study. The test product defibrotide (a polydeoxyribonucleic acid compound of animal origin with demonstrated(More)
Defibrotide is a polydeoxyribonucleotide extracted from mammalian organs (porcine) and prepared by controlled depolymerization, resulting in a single-stranded deoxyribonucleotide with a mean molecular weight of 15 to 30 kDa. Early studies of experimental pharmacology in different animal species (1981-1986) were focused on an antithrombotic effect in(More)
The use of natural products as a diet supplement is increasing worldwide but sometimes is not followed by adequate sanitary controls and analyses.
