Anti-Adhesive Drugs and Tissue Oxygenation
The intravascular agglutination of the formed elements of blood, which occurs under certain pathological conditions, results in peripheral circulation disturbances that may lead to blood flow stagnation and the plugging of small vessels with cell aggregates. [Bicher (1) and (2)] Of the blood cells involved, special attention has been given to the erythrocytes and platelets. These cells seem to possess the ability to start and accelerate the chain of events that leads to organic vessel occlusion.
