The inhibition of neutrophil-endothelial cell adhesion by hyaluronan independent of CD44

Abstract

Objective: To study the effect of hyaluronan on cell adhesion and recruitment both in vitro and in vivo, since hyaluronan both inhibits restenosis and is anti-inflammatory. When administered to animals undergoing angioplasty the recruitment of cells into the restenotic plaque is inhibited, as well as into inflammatory lesions. The recent discovery that ICAM… (More)
