Blood pressure control predicts plasma matrix metalloproteinase-9 in diabetes mellitus type II

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) plays an important role in extracellular and vascular remodelling. We aimed therefore to assess the role of blood pressure (BP) control on plasma MMP-9 in relation to the presence of diabetes mellitus (DM) type II. MATERIAL AND METHODS Plasma MMP-9 was measured in 61 patients who were divided into two groups… (More)
