OBJECTIVE Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) plasma concentrations have been associated with cardiovascular diseases. We aimed to assess the association of NGAL with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). METHODS NGAL concentrations were analyzed by Western blotting in conditioned medium of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) from AAA patients (n=22) and controls (n=11), and also in aortic biopsies from AAA patients and healthy controls (n=10). Plasma NGAL concentrations were… CONTINUE READING
