The study had observed 232 cases that consisted of 47 health cases and 186 hyper lipoidemia cases for three months. They were divided into two groups: qigong group (152 cases ) and the compared group (80 cases ). Lab tests were GMP-140, TXA2 and PGI2 in RIA; CH, TG and HDL in EIA and RBC membrane mobility in fluorescent polarization.

The results showed that 6-K-PGFalpha did not change, GMP-140, TXB2 and CH TG and T/K were obviously lower, RBC membrane mobility enhanced clearly and HDL was higher in qigong group; the variations were not significant in the compared group. A statistical analysis was significant of difference (P<O.01-0.001).

So the effects of practicing qigong were the improvement in RBC membrane mobility and lipoidemia?? tabolism, the regulation in the function of vascular endotheliocyte function and the inhibition in the activation of platelet. They could prevent the thrombus.
