The influence of plant extracts on the viscosity of blood and the oxidative status of animals with experimental liver cancer

Galina Aleksandrovna Afanaseva; Natalia Vladimirovna Polukonova; Olga Alexandrovna Аvramets; Alexey Vasilievich Ivlichev; Ekaterina Aleksandrovna Dmitrienko;

The use of extracts of Chamaenerion angustifolium and Aristolochia lematitis improved the rheological properties of blood at high shear rates and decreased the content of intermediate lipoperoxidation products in experimental PC-1 liver cancer in white rats. Extracts of Filipendula ulmaria and Petasites spurius showed no effect on either endpoint.
