Changes in shape of erythrocytes in rabbits on atherogenic diet and onion extracts.


The effects of administration of cholesterol alone and of cholesterol and fresh whole onion extract, on the shape of erythrocytes, were studied in albino rabbits. In animals on a cholesterol-enriched diet, the erythrocytes changed shape and showed an increased tendency to aggregate, whereas they retained their normal appearance in animals on cholesterol and onion extract, and did not differ from those of normal control rabbits.
