Increased endothelin-1 (ET-1) levels were found in patients with chronic renal failure. These correlate with the severity of renal failure. Patients with elevated ET-1 concentrations show an increased cardiovascular mortality. The prevalence of severe left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is a very important factor for survival and morbidity in uremic patients(More)
OBJECTIVE Secondary failure due to late restenosis continues to occur in 30-50% of individuals after PTCA. beta-Blockers play an important role in the treatment of CAD. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of the new beta-blocker nebivolol on cell proliferation of human coronary smooth muscle cells (haCSMCs) and endothelial cells (haECs) in(More)
The present study suggests that ET-1 is involved in the pathogenesis of uraemic cardiac hypertrophy and in the progression of renal failure in rats with subtotal nephrectomy examined after an intermediate period of 12 weeks of renal failure. Furthermore, proteinuria is reduced by the selective ETA receptor antagonist more than by the unselective ETAB(More)
Increased endothelin-1 (ET-1) levels are found in patients with atherosclerosis. ET-1 is known to increase the mitotic response of different growth factors already at threshold concentrations. The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of ET-1 on the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinases, extracellular signal-regulated protein kinase (ERK) 1(More)
