Immunomodulation and matrix metalloproteinases in viral myocarditis.

Abstract

Myocarditis is an inflammatory disorder induced most commonly by infectious agents. The natural course of the disease is broad and ranges from complete recovery to dilated cardiomyopathy and death. The mechanisms of the incomplete recovery remain poorly understood but extracellular matrix remodelling by metalloproteinases seems to be important for the… (More)
