Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Platelet lipid composition was investigated in 52 healthy subjects aged 20 to 68 years with similar dietary habits and living in a narrow geographic area in order to search possible changes referrable to aging. No significant variations were observed when platelet cholesterol, total phospholipids and different phospholipid fractions were considered, whereas cholesterol/ phospholipid (C/PL) molar ratio significantly increased with aging (p
