OBJECTIVE Several studies have demonstrated that Sirolimus-eluting stents reduce restenosis in patients with coronary artery disease. Here, we tested whether direct delivery of Sirolimus into the vessel wall during balloon angioplasty can modify vascular remodeling over several weeks. METHODS AND RESULTS During angioplasty of the rabbit iliac artery we(More)
Myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury can be related to complement activation with generation of chemotactic mediators, release of cytokines, leukocyte accumulation, and subsequent severe tissue injury. In this regard, activation of transcription factors (i.e., NFkappaB) and de novo protein synthesis or inflammatory protein degradation seems to play an(More)
Myocardial ischemia and reperfusion injury (MI/R) can be related to leukocyte activation with subsequent release of cytokines and oxygen derived free radicals. Activation of the complement system has been implicated in the pathogenesis of myocardial ischemia and reperfusion injury. Inflammatory injury will subsequently result in cellular activation and(More)
