Targeted deletion of matrix metalloproteinase-9 attenuates left ventricular enlargement and collagen accumulation after experimental myocardial infarction.
It is concluded that targeted deletion of the MMP9 gene attenuates LV dilation after experimental MI in mice and the decrease in collagen accumulation and the enhanced expression of other MMPs suggest that MMP-9 plays a prominent role in extracellular matrix remodeling after MI.
Cross-sectional study of soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 and cardiovascular risk factors in apparently healthy men.
An elevated plasma concentration of the soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1) is associated with increased risk for future coronary events. However, data exploring the interrelations of…
Survey of C-reactive protein and cardiovascular risk factors in apparently healthy men.
Matrix metalloproteinase inhibition attenuates early left ventricular enlargement after experimental myocardial infarction in mice.
Administration of an MMP inhibitor attenuates early left ventricular dilation after experimental MI in mice, and the effects of MMP inhibition on the changes in end-systolic area and end-diastolic area were most prominent in animals that had more initialleft ventricular dilatation.
Circulating cell adhesion molecules are correlated with ultrasound-based assessment of carotid atherosclerosis.
A positive association between serum CAMs with carotid IMT is demonstrated and further support the hypothesis that systemic inflammation may have a role in atherosclerotic lesion development.
Gender-associated differences in left ventricular geometry in patients with aortic valve disease and effect of distinct overload subsets.
Targeted deletion of caspase-1 reduces early mortality and left ventricular dilatation following myocardial infarction.
Regional wall stress predicts ventricular remodeling after anteroseptal myocardial infarction in the Healing and Early Afterload Reducing Trial (HEART): an echocardiography-based structural analysis.
Apical regional wall stress is an independent predictor of subsequent LV remodeling after MI and appears to be attenuated by full-dose angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition.

Plasma concentrations of interleukin-6 and abdominal aortic diameter among subjects without aortic dilatation.
Estimating circulating levels of IL-6, SAA, and total homocysteine may reflect processes involved in the early phases of abdominal aortic aneurysm formation, before dilation of the abdominalAorta is established supports a role for chronic inflammation in the progression of asymptomatic aorta disease.
