"Platelet activation plays a major role in cardiovascular events. Mediterranean diet reduces the incidence of stroke and myocardial infarction but it is still unclear if it affects platelet activation. Aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of Mediterranean diet on the urinary excretion of 11-dehydro-thromboxane (TX) B2, a marker in vivo platelet activation, in patients with atrial fibillation."
"Med diet adherence is inversely associated to urinary excretion of 11-dehydro-TXB2, suggesting that Med-Diet may favorably affect platelet function in AF patients."Read More
