BACKGROUND Activated monocytes/macrophages, neutrophils, endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells participate in the restenosis processes. Monocytes/macrophages and neutrophils are activated by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) via CD14. Endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells are also stimulated by soluble CD14 (sCD14)-LPS complexes. METHODS We tested the(More)
The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that plasma levels of adiponectin can predict angiographic in-stent restenosis after coronary stenting. We prospectively examined adiponectin levels in 127 consecutive patients undergoing elective coronary stenting. Restenosis was defined as more than 50% stenosis at follow-up study by quantitative(More)
