Extensive review of the role of platelets in various clinical conditions

Henry I. Bussey, Pharm.D.
February, 2008

Reference: Davì G, Patrono C. Platelet Activation and Atherothrombosis. N Engl J Med. 2007 Dec 13;357(24):2482-94.

In a recent issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, two well-know authorities have provided an excellent and extensive review of the role of platelets in the atherothrombosis. This extensive review provides an extensive discussion on the role of platelets in hemostasis, atherosclerosis, inflammation, and various clinical thrombosis states. The authors also bring in the role of diabetes, homocysteine, cholesterol, and other factors. This publication also provides some excellent color slide material and is well-referenced with 110 references.
