Blood coagulation after a fat meal

, : Blood coagulation after a fat meal. Circulation 14(5): 854-858

The influence of meals on the coagulability of blood was studied in experiments on 20 men with parallel non-fed controls. The whole blood clotting time in siliconized tubes was not altered by a low-fat meal or by continued absence of a meal but it was significantly shortened after a meal containing 100 g of butterfat. The degree of lipemia did not determine the degree of shortening. There was no important effect on prothrombin time of the fatty meal as contrasted with the non-fatty meal or with no meal. Heparin tolerance results were difficult to interpret.

Background: Because the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) system regulates mucin production in airway epithelium, we hypothesized a role for this system in mucus hypersecretion that occurs in nasal polyposis. Objective: We examined the relat...
