Aim: The aim of this experimental study was to examine the effect of the antioxidant drug "U-74389G", on rat model and particularly in a hypoxia-reoxygenation protocol. The beneficial effect or non-effectiveness of that molecule were studied hematologically using blood mean platelet count. Results were that U-74389G administration interacted or not with reoxygenation time decreased the platelet count by 6.12% ± 3.58% (p = 0.0857) and 12.83% ± 5.79% (p = 0.0303) respectively.
Conclusions: U-74389G administration interacted or not with reoxygenation time decreases the platelet count within short-term time of 2 hours by different significance levels.
Keywords: U-74389G; hypoxia; platelet count; reoxygenation.
