BACKGROUND In the present study, the hypothesis was tested that cell adhesion molecules are expressed in failing human hearts and that a chronic inflammatory process contributes to chronic degeneration known to occur in cardiac incompetence. The cell adhesion molecules: ICAM-1, VCAM-1, PECAM-1, and E-selectin were studied, in addition to cellular markers of inflammation. METHODS AND RESULTS Tissue was obtained at transplantation from patients with either myocarditis, chronic ischaemic heart… CONTINUE READING
