Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) involves the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis (AS) and increased plasma MIF levels in diabetes mellitus (DM) patients are associated with AS. Here, we have been suggested that MIF could be a critical contributor for the pathological process of diabetes-associated AS by using adenovirus-mediated RNA interference.(More)
Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are associated with vascular repairing and progression of atherosclerotic lesion. It may lead to coronary artery disease (CAD) if circulating EPCs lose their function. Continuous nitroglycerin (NTG) therapy causes increased vascular oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction. The aim of this study was to investigate the(More)
ICI182,780 is used in adjuvant therapies of breast cancer. As a complete estrogen receptor (ER) blocker, ICI182,780 may antagonize the effects of estrogen on the cardiovascular system. Estrogen inhibits the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), which is one of the mechanisms that estrogen can exert cardioprotective effects. In the present(More)
