Nifedipine Effect On Red Cell Rheological Properties In Patients With Systemic Scleroderma

Recommended Posts

Nifedipine effect on red cell rheological properties in patients with systemic scleroderma. In the present study we were able to demonstrate that erythrocyte deformability and two other related variables such as membrane fluidity and osmotic fragility improve significantly with nifedipine therapy. It is likely that nifedipine inhibiting cytoplasmic calcium accumulation could restore some red blood cell membrane properties. PubMed. Clin Hemorheol Microcirc. 2007;36(2):105-10.
