Endothelial factors and platelet activity : endothelin-1, a new modulator
TLDR
It was concluded from studies that ET-1 at high concentrations had a slight aggregatory effect and at lower concentrations modulated primary and secondary aggregation to adrenaline in a bi-directional manner.

TLDR
The availability of subtype-selective K+ channel openers will facilitate detailed study, through a combined effort of electrophysiology, functional pharmacology and molecular biology, leading to focused therapeutic approaches for defined pathological conditions.

Mechanisms of ischemic preconditioning in skeletal muscle.
TLDR
The results show significant improvements in postischemic skeletal muscle function after IP or cromakalim pretreatment but they do not support a role for K(ATP) channels or for adenosine receptors in IP of skeletal muscle.

Effects of ketanserin on platelet function and red cell filterability in hypertension and peripheral vascular disease.
TLDR
The dual effect of ketanserin on platelet function and erythrocyte filterability might be of great clinical value in hypertension and peripheral vascular disease in which microcirculatory flow is altered.
Effect of a New Anti-Inflammatory Drug, Fenoprofen, on Platelet Aggregation and Thrombus Formation
TLDR
Of the three compounds tested, fenoprofen sodium appears to be the most active inhibitor of platelet function.
The new K+ channel opener Aprikalim (RP 52891) reduces experimental infarct size in dogs in the absence of hemodynamic changes.
TLDR
The objective of the present study was to determine the effect of a novel K+ channel opener, Aprikalim, on myocardial infarct size in barbital-anesthetized dogs subjected to 90 min of left circumflex coronary artery occlusion followed by 5 hr of reperfusion.
Inhibition of platelet-dependent thrombosis by low molecular weight heparin (CY222): comparison with standard heparin.
TLDR
Although heparin preparations produced profound and equivalent antithrombotic effects for platelet-dependent thrombus formation at comparable levels of anti-Xa activity, SH prolonged both the coagulation time and the bleeding time substantially more than did CY222.
Effects of the oral anticoagulant phenprocoumon on blood coagulation and thrombogenesis induced by rabbit aorta subendothelium exposed to flowing human blood: role of dose and shear rate.
TLDR
The data indicate that relatively low doses of oral anticoagulants substantially inhibit the fibrin formation on subendothelium prevailing at venous shear conditions, whereas a high intensity of antICOagulation is necessary to inhibit the formation of platelet-rich thrombi prevailing at arterial shear Conditions.
Serotonin and the flow properties of blood.
TLDR
Specific serotonergic-antagonists, administered either orally or intravenously, normalize the increased whole blood viscosity and decreased blood filterability found in essential hypertension, following myocardial infarction and in severe leg ischaemia.
The effects of the putative potassium channel activator WAY-120,491 on 86Rb efflux from the rabbit aorta.
TLDR
It is concluded that WAY-120,491 may be classified as a K channel opener and the K channel upon which it acts exhibits some characteristics normally associated with the ATP regulated K channel although the involvement of other K channel types has not been ruled out.
