Global vascular guidelines on the management of chronic limb-threatening ischemia.
Chronic limb-threatening ischemia (CLTI) is associated with mortality, amputation, and impaired quality of life. These Global Vascular Guidelines (GVG) are focused on definition, evaluation, andExpand

Overexpression of macrophage migration inhibitory factor induces angiogenesis in human breast cancer.
Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is known to be an important contributor to tumor progression. Overexpression of MIF has been reported in different types of tumors. However, theExpand

Oxidized low-density lipoprotein induces secretion of interleukin-1β by macrophages via reactive oxygen species-dependent NLRP3 inflammasome activation.
Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) is a critical mediator of atherogenesis. Macrophage uptake of ox-LDL and their subsequent development into foam cells is the principal event inExpand

Examination of the patient with a knee dislocation. The case for selective arteriography.
One hundred fifteen patients with a unilateral knee dislocation underwent arteriography to examine the popliteal artery. The incidence of popliteal artery injury was 23% (27 patients). Clinically, 29Expand

MicroRNA expression profile and functional analysis reveal that miR-382 is a critical novel gene of alcohol addiction
Alcohol addiction is a major social and health concern. Here, we determined the expression profile of microRNAs (miRNAs) in the nucleus accumbens (NAc) of rats treated with alcohol. The resultsExpand
