Platelet cGMP inversely correlates with age in healthy subjects.


Biochemical modifications associated with the increase in platelet activity with age are not well defined. Furthermore it is well known that the nitric oxide/cyclic 3', 5'-guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) pathway regulates platelet aggregation. The aim of the present study was to examine the relationship between platelet content of cGMP and age. 120 normal… (More)
