Cardiac toxicity is a major factor that limits the use of anthracyclines in cancer chemotherapy. Heart failure frequently develops in patients treated with doxorubicin (Adriamycin), when they receive a cumulative dose greater than 500 mg/m2. To make a mouse model for gene therapy designed to prevent this toxic effect, we have produced transgenic mice(More)
Dermatan sulphates have been shown to inhibit thrombus formation and thrombus growth in different experimental model of venous thrombosis. At variance with heparins, they show a remarkably low haemorrhagic potential. On the other hand, very few data are available on the effect of dermatan sulphates on arterial thrombus formation. We evaluated the effects of(More)
Autophagy is a self-degradative process responsible for the clearance of damaged or unnecessary cellular components. We have previously found that persistence of dysfunctional organelles due to autophagy failure is a key event in the pathogenesis of COL6/collagen VI-related myopathies, and have demonstrated that reactivation of a proper autophagic flux(More)
To investigate the relationship among lipids, coagulation and thrombosis in the absence of atherosclerosis, spontaneous or dietary-induced hyperlipidemic (FHL) rats were studied. FHL showed higher levels of coagulation factors VII, IX, X, VIII and XII and a shortening of the occlusion time (OT) of an artificial arterial prosthesis as compared with(More)
