BACKGROUND Real-time (RT) myocardial contrast echocardiography (MCE) is a novel method for the assessment of regional myocardial perfusion. We sought to evaluate the feasibility and diagnostic accuracy of quantitative RT-MCE in predicting significant coronary stenosis, with reference to quantitative coronary angiography. HYPOTHESIS RT-MCE can identify(More)
BACKGROUND Our previous studies demonstrated that luteolin, which is rich in flavones, has various biological properties and can exert anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic activities. However, its effect on ox-LDL-induced macrophage lipid accumulation and apoptosis has not been revealed. AIMS This study aimed to explore the role of luteolin(More)
Aims: Hypoxia inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) plays important roles in response to hypoxia. In this study, the effects of adenovirus mediated transgenic HIF-1α on cardiac function in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) models was investigated. Methods and Results: Ad-HIF-1α (adenovirus vector containing HIF-1α gene) or(More)
