The Effects of Lipid Peroxide on Blood Platelet Serotonin
The pathophysiological roles of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine; 5HT) in cardiovascular diseases as well as in psychiatric syndromes such as, for instance, depression, have been documented. Serotonin is released from aggregating platelets. Platelet aggregation may play a role in the process of myocardial ischemia and/or infarction.1
