A highly sensitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) technique was observed for serological detection of antibodies against platelets. A covalently bound to Sepharose CL-4B was used to enrich sera in the IgG3 subclass of antibodies. The ELISA procedure as applied to detect anti-platelet antibodies in patients with herpes or rubella viral infections(More)
Pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH) is associated with a variety of disturbances in the hemostatic system including alterations in platelet function, thrombocytopenia, and an increase in platelet turnover. The density of platelet Thromboxane A2 (TXA2)/Prostaglandin H2 (PGH2) receptors was determined in patients with PIH and normal pregnant women, using(More)
Several disturbances in platelet function have been reported in migraineurs including serotonin (5-HT) metabolism and abnormal aggregability of platelets. The present work compared platelets taken from migraineurs during attacks and at headache-free periods with those of controls. The results demonstrated a tendency to increased aggregability during attacks(More)
The effect of ethanol and cannabinoids on proliferation of the leukaemic cell line K-562 is described. The effects on the cells were assessed by counts of viable cells and 3H thymidine incorporation. delta 'THC was found to attenuate the proliferation of K-562 cells, the effect being prominent at 10(-4)M. CBD was effective only at high concentrations or(More)
