A number of recent experimental and clinical studies deals with the role of platelets in the development of atherosclerosis and of thromboembolic diseases (1,2). The interaction between platelets and vessel walls has been the object of extensive studies on the basis of the recent discovery of the modulators of platelet homeostasis, prostacyclin and thromboxane (3,4).
