Pharmacological effects on hemoglobin-oxygen affinity in vitro and in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.


We examined the effects of pentoxifylline, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and calcium hopantenate on hemoglobin-oxygen affinity in vivo and in vitro. In vitro study, pentoxifylline at 3 and 15 micrograms/ml significantly increased P50 from the placebo (27.0 +/- 0.3 Torr, mean +/- SE) to 28.2 +/- 1.7 and 28.1 +/- 1.3 Torr respectively (p less than 0.05) after 4 hours… (More)
