The activity of catechins was studied for inhibitory activity in human blood platelets. Platelet aggregation and peroxidation were evaluated in platelet rich plasma (PRP) obtained from samples of healthy volunteers. Human blood platelets were submitted to stimulation with 300 microM arachidonic acid, 3 microM adenosine diphospate (ADP) and 6 microM… CONTINUE READING
