BACKGROUND Thrombosis and neointima formation limit the efficacy of coronary angioplasty (PTCA). Clinical trials have implicated the adhesion molecules integrin alpha(IIb)beta(3) and integrin alpha(v)beta(3) in these processes. The roles of these molecules in vascular smooth muscle cell adhesion, platelet aggregation, and the thrombotic and neointimal(More)
The aim of the study was to examine the association among advanced glycation end products (AGEs), extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN) and matrix metalloproteinase (MMPs), and investigate whether AGEs affect type I collagen (COL-I) through EMMPRIN or MMPs. A co-culture system with the osteoblast-like cells (MC3T3E1) and mouse RAW264.7(More)
