Influence of protamine on adhesion, chemotaxis and proliferation of human vascular smooth muscle cells


It has been shown that, in streptozotocin diabetic rats, protamine-retarded insulin administered in vivo stimulates intimal hyperplasia in balloon-injured carotid artery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of protamine on cultured human vascular smooth muscle cells (hVSMC), by observing its effects on adhesion, chemotaxis and proliferation… (More)
