The main method to study platelet function in dietary studies has been the platelet aggregation test in vitro. Even though it is well established that dietary cis-unsaturated fatty acids (FAs) modify platelet aggregation some uncertainty still exists how to interpret the in vitro results in the context of a situation in vivo. The other ways to look at platelet activation are measurements of thromboxane metabolites in urine or the concentration of beta-thromboglobulin (betaTG) released from… CONTINUE READING
