Whole blood viscosity and microvascular abnormalities in Alzheimer's Disease.

Abstract

We hypothesized that abnormalities in hemorheologic parameters, including vessel diameter, flow velocity, and whole blood viscosity (WBV), would be present in Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and would correlate with microvascular abnormalities (vasculopathy). Using the Rheolog, we obtained WBV profiles, measured at shear rates of 1-1,000 s-1, for 10 AD subjects… (More)
