    Background: Platelets are involved in the pathogenesis of aspirin-induced asthma (AIA). AIA patients suffer from an active disease despite avoidance of aspirin, and it has been suggested that administration of aspirin to these patients increases the generation of immediate oxygen products of...

    Aspirin and other inhibitors of cyclo-oxygenase precipitate acute bronchospasm in about 10% of adult asthmatics. It has been assumed that cyclo-oxygenase is involved in the pathogenesis of bronchospasm, but the precise mechanism remains poorly understood. The oxygenation products of arachidonic...

    The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of sulfasalazine and its metabolites on platelet function in patients with inflammatory arthritis (IA). One hundred thirty-five consecutive patients with an established diagnosis of IA were screened. Those with a history of cardiovascular disease...

    High plasma concentrations of nonesterified fatty acids (NEFAs), transported bound to serum albumin, are associated with type 2 diabetes (T2D). The effects of albumin on platelet function were investigated in vitro. Modifications of albumin, such as those due to glycoxidation, were found in...

    â–´ Triflusal is an antiplatelet agent structurally related to the salicylate group of compounds, but it is not derived from aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid). Platelet antiaggregant properties of triflusal and its active 3-hydroxy-4-trifluoro-methylbenzoic acid metabolite are primarily...

    Aspirin is the most commonly used therapeutic agent in prevention of vascular ischemic events. Aspirin exerts its antithrombotic effect primarily by interfering with the biosynthesis of thromboxane A2 (TXA2) and inhibition of TXA2 -dependent platelet aggregation. A meta-analysis of secondary...

    We hypothesize that oxygen free radicals are involved in the genesis and maintenance of volume and pressure overload heart failure. Pressure and volume overload would produce myocardial ischemia. During ischemia there will be an increase in xanthine and xanthine oxidase; and a decrease in the...
