BACKGROUND Coronary artery calcification (CAC) indicates the presence of atherosclerotic lesions and serves as a marker of prognosis in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). This study… Expand
Waist-to-height ratio is an effective indicator for comprehensive cardiovascular health
The aim of this study was to determine the associations between cardiovascular health and the waist circumference (WC) and waist-to-height ratio (WHtR). A cross-sectional study was performed… Expand
Evaluation of apolipoprotein M as a biomarker of coronary artery disease.
OBJECTIVE To investigate the possible role of apolipoprotein M (ApoM) in the development of coronary artery disease (CAD). DESIGN AND METHODS Case-controlled study, which consisted of 118 CAD… Expand
Caveolin-1 Plays an Important Role in the Differentiation of Bone Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells into Cardiomyocytes
Objectives: Accumulating evidence has demonstrated that bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) may transdifferentiate into cardiomyocytes, making BMSCs a promising source of… Expand
Diagnostic and Prognostic Value of Circulating MicroRNA-133a in Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction.
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to examine the expression of circulating microRNA (miR)-133a in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients and assess its potential as a diagnostic and prognostic… Expand
