Many patients undergoing surgery use naturopathic drugs, including fish oil. Fish oil has been reported to increase bleeding in patients through inhibiting platelet aggregation and prolonging of clot formation time. The Swedish Medical Products Agency recommends that patients stop taking the naturopathic medicines including fish oil two weeks prior planed surgery. The aim of this study is to examine the effects of fish oil given to healthy volunteers using point of care coagulation assessment and flow dependent Cellix instrument before and after intake of fish oil.
Healthy volunteers will be given maximum dose of fish oil for 7 days. Blood samples will be collected before and immediately after the 7 days of intake and analysed using point of care coagulation assessment instruments and flow dependent platelet aggregation using a microfluid flow controlled system (Cellix). For point of care coagulation assessment the multiple electrode platelet aggregometer Multiplate, the viscoelastic rotational thromboelastometers ROTEM and Sonoclot will be used. Flow cytometry may also be utilized.

The purpose of this study is to see if there is a racial and/or gender difference in platelet aggregation.
The purpose of the study was to determine the influence of fluvastatin and atorvastatin on platelet aggregation in patients treated with aspirin and plavix after coronary stenting. We hypo...
Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs such as diclofenac or naproxen may interfere with the inhibition of platelet aggregation by aspirin, because they all interact with the platelet cycloox...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether shear-induced platelet aggregation is able to discriminate first acute coronary syndrome (ACS) from recurrent ACS
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of repeat doses of SB-659032 with placebo on platelet aggregation in subjects.
Increased platelet activation is involved in obstetric complications such as preeclampsia and intrauterine growth retardation. It is of interest to study platelet aggregation during pregnancy, since i...
Platelets play a crucial role in haemostasis and thrombosis and evaluation of platelet function in vitro, in particular platelet aggregation responses, has been one of the most common and useful ways ...
BuyangHuanwu decoction (BHD) is widely used as a traditional herbal medicine because of its antithrombotic effect, which is attributed to the inhibition of platelet aggregation; however, its active co...
Thrombosis is a hallmark of the fatal fungal infection mucormycosis. Yet, the platelet activation pathway in response to mucormycetes is unknown. In this study we determined the platelet aggregation p...
This prospective observational study was designed to analyze platelet functions across time in 50 patients scheduled for liver transplantation (LT) secondary to decompensated cirrhosis or hepatocellul...
Drugs or agents which antagonize or impair any mechanism leading to blood platelet aggregation, whether during the phases of activation and shape change or following the dense-granule release reaction and stimulation of the prostaglandin-thromboxane system.
Surface glycoproteins on platelets which have a key role in hemostasis and thrombosis such as platelet adhesion and aggregation. Many of these are receptors.
Platelet membrane glycoprotein complex important for platelet adhesion and aggregation. It is an integrin complex containing INTEGRIN ALPHAIIB and INTEGRIN BETA3 which recognizes the arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD) sequence present on several adhesive proteins. As such, it is a receptor for FIBRINOGEN; VON WILLEBRAND FACTOR; FIBRONECTIN; VITRONECTIN; and THROMBOSPONDINS. A deficiency of GPIIb-IIIa results in GLANZMANN THROMBASTHENIA.
Important polyunsaturated fatty acid found in fish oils. It serves as the precursor for the prostaglandin-3 and thromboxane-3 families. A diet rich in eicosapentaenoic acid lowers serum lipid concentration, reduces incidence of cardiovascular disorders, prevents platelet aggregation, and inhibits arachidonic acid conversion into the thromboxane-2 and prostaglandin-2 families.
A congenital bleeding disorder with prolonged bleeding time, absence of aggregation of platelets in response to most agents, especially ADP, and impaired or absent clot retraction. Platelet membranes are deficient in or have a defect in the glycoprotein IIb-IIIa complex (PLATELET GLYCOPROTEIN GPIIB-IIIA COMPLEX).
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
