Disseminated intravascular coagulation with a fibrinolytic phenotype at an early phase of trauma predicts mortality.
INTRODUCTION Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) with an antifibrinolytic phenotype is characterized by microvascular thrombosis leading to poor outcome at the late-stage of trauma. To testExpand

Disseminated intravascular coagulation at an early phase of trauma is associated with consumption coagulopathy and excessive fibrinolysis both by plasmin and neutrophil elastase.
BACKGROUND The aims of the present study were to confirm the consumption coagulopathy of disseminated intravascular coagulation with the fibrinolytic phenotype at an early phase of trauma and to testExpand

Effect of Antisense Oligonucleotides against Cholesteryl Ester Transfer Protein on the Development of Atherosclerosis in Cholesterol-fed Rabbits*
Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) is the enzyme that facilitates the transfer of cholesteryl ester from high density lipoprotein (HDL) to apolipoprotein B (apoB)-containing lipoproteins.Expand

Transient receptor potential (TRP) protein 7 acts as a G protein-activated Ca2+ channel mediating angiotensin II-induced myocardial apoptosis
Transient receptor potential (TRP) proteins have been identified as cation channels that are activated by agonist–receptor coupling and mediate various cellular functions. TRPC7, a homologue of TRPExpand

Interaction of mRNAs for angiotensin II type 1 and type 2 receptors to vascular remodeling in spontaneously hypertensive rats.
We administered angiotensin II (Ang II) receptor type 1 (AT1) blockade (losartan, 40 mg x kg-1 x d-1), type II receptor (AT2) blockade (PD123319, 100 mg x kg-1 x d-1), or angiotensin-convertingExpand

Application of the Japanese Association for Acute Medicine disseminated intravascular coagulation diagnostic criteria for patients at an early phase of trauma.
INTRODUCTION To validate the diagnostic criteria for disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) established by the Japanese Association for Acute Medicine (JAAM) at an early stage of trauma and toExpand

High-Density Lipoproteins Protect Endothelial Cells from Tumor Necrosis Factor-α-Induced Apoptosis
High-density lipoproteins (HDL) levels have been shown to be inversely correlated with coronary heart disease, but the mechanisms of the direct protective effect of HDL on endothelial cells are notExpand

Chronic inhibition of Rho kinase blunts the process of left ventricular hypertrophy leading to cardiac contractile dysfunction in hypertension-induced heart failure.
The Gq-RhoA-Rho kinase pathway, activated by neurohormonal factors such as angiotensin II (Ang II), has been proposed to be one of the important signaling pathways involved in the progression of leftExpand

SIVELESTAT (SELECTIVE NEUTROPHIL ELASTASE INHIBITOR) IMPROVES THE MORTALITY RATE OF SEPSIS ASSOCIATED WITH BOTH ACUTE RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME AND DISSEMINATED INTRAVASCULAR COAGULATION PATIENTS
Neutrophil elastase plays an important role in the development of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) in sepsis. Sivelestat is a selectiveExpand

RNA interference targeting SHP‐1 attenuates myocardial infarction in rats
The Src homology domain 2 (SH2)‐containing tyrosine phosphatase‐1 (SHP‐1) plays a key role in apoptosis and decreases phosphorylation of Akt. Apoptosis of cardiomyocytes is thought to contribute toExpand
