Abstract

Ovine platelets suspended in homologous plasma aggregated effectively in response to adenosine-diphosphate, acid-soluble collagen and aggregated moderately to serotonin and arachidonic acid. Ovine platelet aggregation, in response to each agent, was inhibited in a concentration dependent fashion by T-2 toxin. The platelet aggregates which formed in the presence of T-2 toxin appeared to be less stable than aggregates in comparable control platelet suspensions.
