EFFECTS OF SHEAR STRESSES ON HUMAN LYMPHOCYTE FUNCTIONS
A modified Couette Viscometer was used to study the effect of shear stresses on human lymphocyte function, the cells that constitute the afferent and efferent paths of the immune response. The lymphocytes were obtained as ...
A RHEOLOGICAL STUDY OF PLATELET-FIBRIN INTERACTION
A rheological technique was employed to study the platelet-fibrin interaction, measuring the clot rigidity (dynamic shear elastic moduli (G')) and the platelet generated contractile force. The roles of plasma fibronectin, ...
POPULATION BALANCE ANALYSIS OF SHEAR-INDUCED PLATELET AGGREGATION
The work herein examines in vitro platelet aggregation in response to fluid shearing motion. Our specific aim is to characterize shear-induced aggregation by means of kinetic measurements. In doing so we consider plausible ...
