Abstract

IN 1961, Gaarder et al.1 reported that adenosine diphos-phate (ADP) causes human blood platelets to aggregate. Born et al.2,3 described a method by which the aggregation of platelets may be followed quantitatively. They confirmed the results of Gaarder and described inhibition of the ADP-effect by 2-chloroadenosine and other substituted nucleosides4. Lately, some more results on this subject have been published5–7, but the mechanism of platelet aggregation is still unknown.
