Platelet-derived microparticles (PDMPs) are produced by platelet activation or physical stimulation under various conditions. To evaluate changes in platelet and chemokine function in patients undergoing percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), we measured and compared levels of PDMPs and a C-C chemokine, regulated on activation normally T-cell express and secreted (RANTES), by ELISA. Levels of PDMP and RANTES in patients with acute coronary syndrome were significantly higher than… CONTINUE READING
