Increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) production is implicated in the pathophysiology of left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and heart failure. However, the enzymatic sources of myocardial ROS production are unclear. We examined the expression and activity of phagocyte-type NADPH oxidase in LV myocardium in an experimental guinea pig model of progressive(More)
Stress, either physical or psychological, can have a dramatic impact on our immune system. There has been little progress, however, in understanding chronic stress-induced immunosuppression. Naive CD4+ T cells could modulate immune responses via differentiation to T helper (Th) cells. In this study, we showed that stress promotes the release of the Th1(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the expression level of vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) in the aortic tissues of atherosclerotic patients and to explore the associated clinical implications. Full-thickness aortic wall tissue samples were collected from atherosclerotic patients. Biochemical analysis was used for the detection of the serum(More)
