The kinetics of human platelet aggregation and disaggregation in controlled shear fields
The objectives of this research are to contribute to a better understanding of human platelet involvement in vascular disease. To accomplish this, both the laser light scattering technique and the population balance equation ...
Oxygen transport by hemoglobin-based blood substitutes
A dual track approach has been applied to the study of oxygen transport behavior of erythrocyte/hemoglobin mixtures flowing in microvessels. The method includes experimental and theoretical modeling of the microcirculation. ...
Receptor-specific binding of von Willebrand factor to platelets in response to shear stress
Physical and biochemical forces convert platelets in human blood in vivo from the quiescent state as freely moving, discoid, singlets to aggregates adhering to subendothelial surfaces and secreting a wide variety of bioactive ...
Effect of hemoglobin polymerization on the oxygen transport in hemoglobin solutions and packed cells
The effect of hemoglobin polymerization on the facilitated transport of oxygen in systems containing polymerized hemoglobins has been studied experimentally. In part I of this work, the oxygen transport efficacy of a ...
A study on the resistances to oxygen transport in the microcirculation
A study on the resistances to oxygen transport in the microcirculation has been conducted. In Part I of this work, the oxygen permeability of cultured bovine aortic and human umbilical vein endothelial cell monolayers was ...
