Generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) by platelets was detected by a cyano-tetrazolium dye (CTC) which forms fluorescent formazan on the cell surface upon reduction. Fluorescence was quantitated by a densitometric device. Resting platelets in plasma produced significant fluorescence (P < 0.0001), and addition of thrombin enhanced the fluorescence of… CONTINUE READING
