Acute platelet changes after large meals of saturated and unsaturated fats.


Large amounts of saturated fats (S.F.) or unsaturated fats (U.S.F.) were given to healthy volunteers at a single meal. The heparin thrombin clotting-time, which may measure platelet factor 4 released from platelets into the plasma, was shortened after S.F. and prolonged after U.S.F. The antithrombin clotting activity decreased after S.F. and increased after U.S.F. The platelet-count decreased and the platelet volume increased after both S.F. and U.S.F.
