Levels of VE-Cadherin – Positive ndothelial Microparticles in Patients With ype 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Coronary Artery Disease

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to examine whether CD144-EMP (endothelium-derived microparticles) is useful as a specific marker of endothelial cell (EC) dysfunction and to determine whether plasma levels of circulating CD144-EMP predicted coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM).
