Walker 256 carcinosarcoma cells induce the aggregation of rat platelets and concomitant production of eicosanoid metabolites (e.g., 12-hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acid, thromboxane A2). Cyclooxygenase inhibitors, but not lipoxygenase inhibitors, were able to inhibit platelet aggregation induced in vitro by low concentrations of agonists. At high agonist concentrations, neither cyclooxygenase nor lipoxygenase inhibitors affected platelet aggregation; however the combination of both inhibitors… CONTINUE READING
