Effects of heat on camel platelet structure and function--a comparative study with humans.


Camels and many other desert animals are uniquely adapted to conserve water and other fluids in order to survive intense heat for long periods. Earlier studies have suggested that human platelets may be the trigger for the coagulopathy involved in heat prostration and stroke. The present study has compared the resistance of camel and human platelets to heat… (More)
