BACKGROUND Diabetes mellitus is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, which in part may be due to a variety of abnormalities reported in diabetic platelets. However, the effects of diabetic platelets on vasomotor tone have not been characterized. METHODS We compared platelet-mediated vasodilation elicited by platelets isolated from… CONTINUE READING
