Autoimmune dilated cardiomyopathy in PD-1 receptor-deficient mice.
Dilated cardiomyopathy is a severe pathology of the heart with poorly understood etiology. Disruption of the gene encoding the negative immunoregulatory receptor PD-1 in BALB/c mice, but not inExpand

Stiffness of systemic arteries in patients with myocardial infarction. A noninvasive method to predict severity of coronary atherosclerosis.
The static elastic properties of arterial tree (abdominal aorta and common carotid artery) were studied in 19 normal subjects and in 49 patients with myocardial infarction with an ultrasonicExpand

Ventriculoarterial coupling in normal and failing heart in humans.
To investigate coupling between the heart and arterial system in normal subjects and cardiac patients, we determined both the slope of the left ventricular end-systolic pressure-volume relationExpand

Non-invasive assessment of the age related changes in stiffness of major branches of the human arteries.
The static mechanical properties of major branches of the human arteries (common carotid artery, abdominal aorta, femoral artery, and brachial artery) were studied in 39 subjects, aged 6-81 years,Expand

Transition from compensatory hypertrophy to dilated, failing left ventricles in Dahl salt-sensitive rats.
To establish an experimental model for studying a specific transitional stage for compensatory hypertrophy to heart failure, we studied the pathophysiology of the left ventricle (LV) in DahlExpand

Major racial differences in coronary constrictor response between japanese and caucasians with recent myocardial infarction.
BACKGROUND Enhanced coronary vasomotion may contribute to acute coronary occlusion during the acute phase of myocardial infarction (AMI). Japanese have a higher incidence of variant angina thanExpand

Cytokine gene expression after myocardial infarction in rat hearts: possible implication in left ventricular remodeling.
BACKGROUND A large transmural myocardial infarction may initiate structural and geometric changes in the left ventricle that are commonly referred to as remodeling. Progressive, adverse remodeling ofExpand

Racial heterogeneity in coronary artery vasomotor reactivity: differences between Japanese and Caucasian patients.
Japanese investigators have provided a substantial contribution in the understanding of coronary vasomotor reactivity. On occasions, their findings have been at variance with those undertaken onExpand

Evidence for a Role of Mast Cells in the Evolution to Congestive Heart Failure
Mast cells are believed to be involved in the pathophysiology of heart failure, but their precise role in the process is unknown. This study examined the role of mast cells in the progression ofExpand
