Study Completion Date: June 2012
Primary Completion Date: May 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: Nacl Injection
  1. Blood samples (4 test tubes) will be extracted from control groups and 8 test tubes for the trial group. The blood of the trial group will be centrifuged and the platelet fraction extracted and counted (only 4 test tubes).
  2. NACL0.9% solution will be then injected to the control group in sterile conditions under ultrasound control
