  • Perfluorocarbon (PFC) and lipid emulsions (eg. Fluosol, Intralipid,) containing phospholipid have been reported to modify platelet function after intravenous infusion. Platelet activation might be responsible for the generation of mediators responsible for PFC-induced side effects. In view of this, we investigated the effect of a highly concentrated perfluorocarbon emulsion containing 90% (w/v) perfluorooctylbromide (perflubron; PFOB), on porcine and human platelet activation and function. We… CONTINUE READING
