BACKGROUND Myocarditis and dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) are common causes of morbidity and mortality in children and adults. Recently, the human coxsackievirus and adenovirus receptor (CAR), a common receptor for coxsackieviruses and adenoviruses, was discovered and its increased expression has been reported in patients with DCM and myocarditis. OBJECTIVE To measure the expression of CAR in myocardial tissues of patients with DCM and its cellular localization in DCM cases. METHODS Formalin… CONTINUE READING
