Lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) generated from oxidized low-density lipoprotein by lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 plays a key role in plaque inflammation and vulnerability. Endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) can repair injured endothelium and exert anti-inflammatory effects of vulnerable plaque. We study the impact and mechanisms of LPC on UEA-1 and(More)

Many preclinical studies show that electroacupuncture (EA) on PC6 and ST36 can reduce infarct size after ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury. Yet studies to enhance the treatment effect size are limited. The purpose of this study was to explore whether EA has additional myocardial protective effects on an ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury rat model when(More)
