BACKGROUND Thymosin β4 was recently demonstrated to be a potential stimulator of angiogenesis and arteriogenesis in both in-vivo and in-vitro studies. Little is known about the relationship between serum thymosin β4 levels and the extent of coronary collaterals in patients with coronary artery disease. HYPOTHESIS Serum thymosin β4 independently predicts(More)
OBJECTIVE In-vivo studies have shown that hyaluronan (HA) can promote angiogenesis and arteriogenesis, which results in accelerated collateral development. This study is aimed at investigating the association between plasma HA levels and the extent of coronary collaterals, in patients with coronary artery disease. METHODS A total of 253 consecutive(More)
Angiogenesis is an important mechanism that protects tissue against necrosis following acute ischemic injury. The aim of this study was to investigate whether the Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) signaling pathway is involved in angiogenesis following ischemic injury by cell migration and lymphocyte invasion assays in vitro,(More)
Insulation defects in the leads are a common complication in implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs). Although the new multilumen leads have significantly reduced the incidence of insulation defects, they have introduced the new and rare problem of outer-insulation abrasions. In this report, we present the case of a 53-year-old man with dilated(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the change of auditory brainstem response (ABR) in hearing deprivation rat model induced by bilateral cochlears ablation at different time points. METHOD Forty SD rats were randomly divided into four experiment groups including 2-week group, 4-week group, 6-week group, 8-week group and four control groups with 5 rats (n = 10) in each(More)
