Plasma matrix metalloproteinase and inhibitor profiles in patients with heart failure.
BACKGROUND Changes in myocardial matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and the inhibitors of MMPs (TIMPs) have been demonstrated in congestive heart failure (CHF). The first objective of this study was toExpand

The role of cytokines in disease progression in heart failure.
Recent studies have identified the importance of biologically active molecules such as neurohormones as mediators of disease progression in heart failure. More recently it has become apparent that inExpand

p53 gene mutation spectrum in human unknown primary tumors.
Mutations affecting the p53 gene are associated with many human malignancies, but little is known about changes in p53 in unknown primary tumors (UPTs), which are characterized as tumors withExpand

P53 mutations are infrequent and do not correlate with the metastatic potential of human-melanoma cells.
Eleven human melanoma cell lines with different metastatic ability (both spontaneous and experimental) in nude mice, were analyzed for p53 mutations. Mutations in the conserved regions of the p53Expand

Tumor necrosis factor‐α and the failing human heart–TNFα and heart failure
Tumor necrosis factor‐alpha (TNFα) is a proin‐flammatory cytokine with negative inotropic effects. Recently, elevated levels of TNFα have been identified in patients with advanced heart failure.Expand
