Ischemic heart disease still represents a large burden on individuals and health care resources worldwide. By conventions, it is equated with atherosclerotic plaque due to flow-limiting obstruction in large-medium sized coronary arteries. However, …

Cardiac fibrosis caused by adverse cardiac remodeling following myocardial infarction can eventually lead to heart failure. Although the role of soluble factors such as TGF-beta is well studied in cardiac fibrosis following myocardial injury, the…

Cardiac remodelling is a key risk factor for the development of heart failure in the chronic phase following myocardial infarction. Our previous studies have shown an anti-remodelling role of ACE2 (angiotensin-converting enzyme 2) in vivo during…

The effect of wnt/beta-catenin signalling in the response to acute myocardial infarction (AMI) remains controversial. The membrane receptor adaptor protein Disabled-2 (Dab2) is a tumour suppressor protein and has a critical role in stem cell…

Costa AR, Panda NC, Yong S, Mayorga ME, Pawlowski GP, Fan K, Penn MS, Laurita KR. Optical mapping of cryoinjured rat myocardium grafted with mesenchymal stem cells. Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 302: H270-H277, 2012. First published October 28,…

Background: Guidelines recommend discontinuing clopidogrel for at least 5 days before elective coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) to limit blood transfusions and for at least 24 hours before urgent CABG to reduce major bleeding…

Objective-We determined whether increasing adherence of multipotent stromal cells (MSCs) would amplify their effects on coronary collateral growth (CCG). Methods and Results-Adhesion was established in cultured coronary endothelials cells (CECs) or…

Aminopeptidase-A (APA) is a less well-studied enzyme of the renin-angiotensin system. We propose that it is involved in cardiac angiotensin (ANG) metabolism and its pathologies. ANG-(1-7) can ameliorate remodeling after myocardial injury. The aims of…

Coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death in Americans. After myocardial infarction, significant ventricular damage persists despite timely reperfusion and pharmacological management. Treatment is limited, as current modalities do not…

Rationale: MultiStem is an allogeneic bone marrow-derived adherent adult stem cell product that has shown efficacy in preclinical models of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). In this phase I clinical trial in patients with first…

A 68-year-old man with coronary artery disease was admitted for chest pain and ventricular tachycardia, After electric cardioversion, therapeutic heparinization was started for myocardial ischemia and nontransmural infarction, On day 3, headache and…

Therapeutic delivery to the cardiovascular system may play an important role in the successful treatment of a variety of disease state, including atherosclerosis, ischemic-reperfusion injury and other types of microvascular diseases including…

Mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (ROS) have emerged as an important mechanism of disease and redox signaling in the cardiovascular system. Under basal or pathological conditions, electron leakage for ROS production is primarily mediated by the…
