    Genetic variants of renin on the prevalence of diabetic nephropathy

    Pulakes Purkait, Kalpataru Halder, Jammigumpula Masthanaiah Naidu, Biswanath Sarkar

    Aim: Renin, a component of the Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System (RAAS), is produced in the juxtaglomerular cells of the kidney. It is an important factor for the regulation of blood pressure and electrolyte balance and encoded by the REN gene. Recent studies suggest that the RAAS is a... Read more

    Iatragenic injury to axillary artery: rescued by endovascular repair

    Chih-Chen Kao, Yao-Kuang Huang

    Most of axillo-subclavian artery injuries are due to violence. Iatrogenic injuries to such vessels are relatively rare. We hereby present the first report of pigtail catheter insertion for right upper chest wall hematoma drainage resulting in penetration of axillary artery and pseudoaneurysm... Read more

    Immunohistochemistry of the circadian clock in mouse and human vascular tissues

    Ciprian B. Anea, Ana M. Merloiu, David J. R. Fulton, Vijay Patel, R. Dan Rudic

    Aim: The circadian clock is a molecular network that controls the body physiological rhythms. In blood vessels, the circadian clock components modulate vascular remodeling, blood pressure, and signaling. The goal in this study was to determine the pattern of expression of circadian clock proteins... Read more

    Histone deacetylases in vascular permeability and remodeling associated with acute lung injury

    Laszlo Kovacs, Anita Kovacs-Kasa, Alexander D. Verin, David Fulton, Rudolf Lucas, Yunchao Su

    Acute lung injury (ALI) is a severe progressive disorder that arises from a wide range of causes such as toxins or inflammation, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. There are no effective therapeutic options apart from mechanical ventilation strategies. While the mechanisms that... Read more

    Research into biodegradable polymeric stents: a review of experimental and modelling work

    Tianyang Qiu, Liguo Zhao

    Bioresorbable stents (BRSs) are regarded as the next-generation medical devices to treat blocked or diseased arteries. The use of BRSs aims to reduce the risk of late stent thrombosis and long-term tissue inflammation associated with permanent metallic stents. BRSs are designed to relieve... Read more

    Plasmatic biomarkers of inflammation correlate with 18FDG-PET-CT and microembolic signals in patients with carotid stenosis

    Hubertus Mueller, Loraine Fisch, Christophe Bonvin, Karl Lovblad, Osman Ratib, Patrice Lalive, Stephane Pagano, Nicolas Vuilleumier, Jean-Pierre Willi, Roman Sztajzel

    Aim: To determine whether plasmatic biomarkers correlate with 18fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET-CT) and presence of microembolic signals (MES) detected by transcranial Doppler in patients with carotid stenosis. Methods: 18FDG-PET-CT and MES... Read more
