OBJECTIVES To compare the ability of (99m)Tc-labeled broad-based matrix metalloproteinase inhibitor (RP805) (MPI) and (99m)Tc-annexin V to identify more advanced atherosclerotic disease in apolipoprotein E-null (apoE(-/-)) mice. BACKGROUND Both MMP expression and apoptotic cell death occur in both early and in advanced atherosclerotic plaques. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Receptor for advanced glycation endproducts (RAGE) expression contributes to the impaired angiogenic response to limb ischemia in diabetes. The aim of this study was to detect the effect of increased expression of RAGE on the angiogenic response to limb ischemia in diabetes by targeting αvβ3 integrin with 99mTc-labeled Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD).
