BACKGROUND Heart-type fatty acid-binding protein (H-FABP) is proposed as an early biomarker for acute myocardial infarction (AMI), but its prognostic value is unclear in acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We evaluated the prognostic value of the H-FABP concentration relative to cardiac troponin T (cTnT) in the early hours of ACS. METHODS Serum concentrations(More)
Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is the myocardial necrosis caused by coronary artery acute and persistent ischemia and hypoxia. Matrix metalloprotease-9 (MMP-9) plays an important role in a series of process of occurrence and development of AMI. Inflammatory reaction plays the key role in all kinds of damage factors in AMI. Apigenin (API) has effectively(More)
A cooperative control law based on output feedback is present for a multiple nonlinear system. The given cooperative control law is applied to control the formation of a multiple rigid body system, and at the same time to cooperative control the attitude of a multiple rigid body system where quaternion is used to describe the attitude of every rigid body(More)
The present study aims to study the role of receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B ligand/receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B/osteoprotegerin (RANKL/RANK/OPG) system in cardiac hypertrophy in a spontaneous hypertension rat (SHR) model and the effects of amlodipine and atorvastatin intervention. Thirty-six-week-old male SHRs were randomly(More)
This study aimed to examine the effects of amlodipine and atorvastatin alone or in combination on the regulation of inflammatory cytokines and the underlying mechanisms in elderly spontaneously hypertensive (SH) rats. The level of serum hs-CRP was detected with ELISA. The serum TNF-α and IL-1β levels were assessed by radioimmunity assay (RIA). Cardiac(More)
Growing evidences suggest that there are close associations between anthocyanins and cardiac protection. However, little is known about the detailed roles of anthocyanins in regulating extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling. Incubation of primary cultured fibroblasts with anthocyanins reduced both intracellular collagen expression and extracellular collagen(More)
OBJECTIVE Nicorandil, an opener of ATP-sensitive K+ channels, was used to treat angina in patients with coronary artery disease. In this study, we aim to investigate the cardioprotective effects of single oral dose of nicorandil in patients undergoing selective percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). METHODS One hundred and thirty-eight patients with(More)
BACKGROUND MMPs/TIMPs system is well known to play important roles in pressure overload-induced cardiac remodeling, and Amlodipine and Atorvastatin have been showed to exert favourable protective effects on cardiovascular disease, however, it is not clear whether Amlodipine and Atorvastatin can improve hypertensive cardiac remodeling and whether the(More)
