Prostacyclin and thromboxane production was measured in human umbilical cord arteries bathed in clotting human blood and compared with arteries bathed in Krebs buffer or clotting blood without vessels. In comparison with the combined system, vessels in buffer generated only minute amounts of immunoreactive thromboxane B2 while blood alone generated only… CONTINUE READING
