We measured serum hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) in patients with acute myocardial infarction, angina pectoris, and other heart diseases. In patients with acute myocardial infarction, blood was collected at the time of admission. Serum HGF was elevated within 3 hours in 8 of 10 patients (80%) with acute myocardial infarction after onset of chest pain (9.4 +/- 3.2 ng/mL, mean +/- SEM, values in normal subjects <0.39 ng/mL). Mean value of serum HGF was 11.0 +/-2.6 ng.mL (n=11) in patients who… CONTINUE READING
