OBJECTIVE Little is known about the association between plasma homocysteine (Hcy) and endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) in coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS Blood mononuclear cells were isolated from CAD (n = 30) patients and non-CAD controls (n = 30). Flow cytometric analysis and an in vitro culture system was used to evaluate the number and(More)

AIM Primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS) is an autoimmune disease affecting exocrine glands. Both autoreactive T cells and B cells are involved in the development of pSS, but their exact contribution to the pathogenesis is not clear. Here, we aimed to investigate the association of B-cell activating factor (BAFF) and interleukin (IL)-17A with subphenotypes of(More)
BACKGROUND High on-treatment platelet reactivity (HPR) represents a strong risk factor for thrombotic events after PCI. We aim to evaluate the efficacy and safety of individualizing intensified dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) in PCI-treated patients with HPR based on platelet function testing (PFT). METHODS Electronic databases were searched for(More)
BACKGROUND Statins exert regression of left ventricular hypertrophy independent of their plasma cholesterol-lowering actions. However, the underlying mechanism is not clear. METHODS We tested the hypothesis that the extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERKs) signaling pathway could be a target of simvastatin (SIM) and involved in SIM-induced LVH(More)
