PURPOSE Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) reduces symptoms and improves survival in patients with advanced heart failure (New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional class III-IV), reduced ejection fraction, and wide QRS complex. Whether CRT has the same benefit also in asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic heart failure patients is controversial. Our(More)
Recently, a new subset of T helper (Th) cell that predominantly secret cytokine interleukin-22 (IL-22) is identified, termed Th22 cells. The Th22 subset has been demonstrated to be involved in immunity and tissue inflammation. However, the existence of Th22 cells and role of IL-22 in acute viral myocarditis (AVMC) remain unknown. BALB/c mice were(More)
A new subset of T helper (Th) cells, named IL-22-producing Th22 cells, was identified recently. Th22 cells have been implicated in immunity and inflammation. However, the role of these cells in the progression from acute viral myocarditis (AVMC) to dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) and myocardial fibrosis remains unknown. BALB/c mice were repeatedly i.p.(More)
