BACKGROUND Recent studies suggested that some HMG-CoA reductase blockers might inhibit the antiplatelet activity of clopidogrel. Therefore, we analyzed how various statins together with a high loading dose of clopidogrel (600 mg) affect platelet aggregation. METHODS AND RESULTS Seventy-seven patients with stable angina scheduled for elective coronary(More)
Diabetes is associated with an enhanced collagen-mediated platelet activation that contributes significantly to thromboischemic complications. In this study, the platelet collagen receptor glycoprotein VI (GPVI) was studied in 385 patients with type 2 diabetes. Surface expression of the platelet Fc receptor that forms a functional complex with GPVI was(More)
Glycoprotein VI (GPVI) is the major platelet collagen receptor and plays a critical role in the process of thrombosis at sites of atherosclerotic lesions. This study evaluates the feasibility of radiolabeled soluble GPVI to identify injured arterial lesions. Radiolabeling was carried out using the iodogen method and resulted in the radioiodinated GPVI in(More)
Previously, our research group showed that integrin stimulation induces release of cardiac troponin I from viable neonatal rat ventricular cardiomyocytes (NRCMs), but would it also stimulate uptake of exogenous macromolecules? For this purpose, beating NRCMs were incubated without or with an RGD motif-containing peptide (GRGDS) to stimulate integrins in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the critical value and possible influencing factors of fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) in suspected asthma patients. METHODS 923 suspected asthmatics consecutively referred to our hospital during December 2012 to July 2014 were selected. All cases were carried out FeNO measurement at first; next, spirometry, bronchoprovocation(More)
BACKGROUND 1) To investigate the expression of platelet collagen receptor glycoprotein VI (GPVI) on the surface of platelets in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD). 2) To investigate the expression of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) on the surface of endothelial cells after exposure to(More)
—Let A be a 2 × 2 expansive matrix with integer entries and | det A| = 2. Let h 0 ∈ (A τ) −1 Z 2 /Z 2 , and m is a 2πZ 2 periodic function. m is called an A-dilation generalized filter if it satisfies |m(s)| 2 + |m(s + 2πh0)| 2 = 1, for any s ∈ R 2 , where R is the real number set and Z is the integer set. In this paper, we discuss these filters. We present(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of Arg-Gly-Asp peptides (RGD peptides)on the secretion of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) from vascular endothelial cells (VEC) and the mechanism. METHODS Using VEC cultured from the arteries of human greater omentum as a model, and detecting the content of VEGF and the activity of protein kinase C (PKC) under(More)
