Platelets play a key role in hemostasis and changes in redox balance are known to alter platelet activation and aggregation. Interestingly, activation of platelets leads to production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), but the role(s) of these ROS remain unclear. Using flow cytometry and chemiluminescence, agonist-induced ROS generation was found to be(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) contribute to postnatal neovascularization, thus promoting wide interest in their therapeutic potential in vascular injury and prevention of their dysfunction in cardiovascular diseases. Cleaved high molecular weight kininogen (HKa), an activation product of the plasma kallikrein-kinin system(More)
Metastasis of malignant tumors is a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Inhibition of tumor growth in distant organs is of clinical importance. We have demonstrated that C11C1, a murine monoclonal antibody to the light chain region of high molecular weight kininogen (HK), reduces growth of murine multiple myeloma in normal mice and human colon cancer in(More)
