Influence of Tołpa Peat Preparation on haemostasis in rats.Acta Pol Pharm 1993; 50(6):507-11AP
The influence of Tołpa Peat Preparation (TPP) on certain parameters of haemostasis was studied. The present results indicate that TPP (100, 200 and 300 mg/kg p.o.) had no influence on the bleeding time, clotting time, thrombin time, prothrombin time, kaolin-kephalin time, euglobulin lysis time, the concentration of fibrinogen, the platelet count and ADP-induced platelet aggregation. No changes in animals after long-term treatment with TPP (100 mg/kg for two weeks) were found either. In in vitro studies TPP given in concentrations 10(-5), 10(-4), 10(-3) and 10(-2) g/cm3 was used and certain changes of the studied parameters, probably caused by the presence of high salt content in this substance, were observed.
