OBJECTIVE To determine the role of platelet activating factor (PAF) in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced thrombocytopenia and neutropenia in dogs. ANIMALS 42 dogs. PROCEDURES Blood samples were obtained from dogs given LPS (40 microg/kg of body weight; n = 16), PAF (1 microg/kg; 6), PAF (5 microg/kg/h for 90 minutes; 4), or physiologic saline (0.9% NaCl… CONTINUE READING
