OBJECTIVES The study evaluated the relationship between plasma cardiotrophin-1 (CT-1) concentration and left ventricular (LV) mass in dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). BACKGROUND Cardiotrophin-1 is a newly identified member of the interleukin-6 (IL-6) family of cytokines and one of the endogenous ligands for gp130 signaling pathways in the heart, and it has potent hypertrophic and survival effects on cardiac myocytes. However, the clinical significance… CONTINUE READING
