PURPOSE Activation of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) signaling and matrix metalloproteinases are involved in hypertrophic scar (HS) formation. Compression therapy is known to be an effective approach for the treatment of hypertrophic scarring; however, the underlying molecular mechanisms remain poorly understood. We investigated the relationship(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of rosuvastatin on arterial stiffness in hyperlipidemia patient without hypertension. METHODS A total of 60 patients without hypertension received rosuvastatin (10 mg, n = 60) daily for 12 weeks while another 60 subjects used no statins. Brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (ba-PWV), radial artery augmentation index of(More)
Myocardial infarction (MI) is an acute and fatal condition that threatens human health. Dl-3-n-butylphthalide (NBP) has been used for the treatment of acute ischemic stroke. Mitochondria may play a protective role in MI injury. However, there are few reports on the cardioprotective effect of NBP or the potential mitochondrial mechanism for the NBP-induced(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the application of adenosine stress echocardiography (ASE) in the prognosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) following percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). A total of 79 patients with AMI who underwent PCI were selected for the study. ASE testing was performed within one week following the PCI. Subsequent to(More)
Transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β) is suggestive of a molecular target for cancer therapy due to its involvement in cell cycle, differentiation, and morphogenesis. Meanwhile, survivin is identified as an apoptosis inhibitor and involved in tumorgenesis. Here, we aimed to investigate the potential associations between TGF-β and survivin in glioblastoma(More)
