The formation of platelet-leukocyte microaggregates has been observed in a variety of conditions. When platelets and leukocytes coaggregate, in general, a reciprocal activation occurs when both cells are activated, and the interactions between activated platelets and leukocytes may be relevant in both hemostasis and inflammatory processes. The study of platelet-leukocyte interactions in hemodialysis offers the novel aspect of cellular-cellular interaction as a new parameter for evaluating the… CONTINUE READING
