Aminobenzoic acid hydrazide, a myeloperoxidase inhibitor, alters the adhesive properties of neutrophils isolated from acute myocardial infarction patients


Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is associated with vascular inflammation, including activation and adherence of neutrophils to vascular endothelial cells via CD11b/CD18 intercellular adhesion molecule interactions. Myeloperoxidase (MPO) induces CD11b surface expression in polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs); however, its role in regulating adhesion in… (More)
