Acute coronary syndrome
The aim of this study was to investigate the changes of circulating CD4+CD25+CD127low regulatory T cells (Treg) in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and its significance. The experiment was divided into three groups: ACS (48 patients), stable angina pectoris (SAP) (24 patients), and normal controls (24 subjects).
Serum high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) is a sensitive indicator of inflammation, which is closely related with the progress of plaque formation. Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is one of the inflammatory markers of local coronary plaque and the peripheral blood cycle, promoting the occurrence of atherosclerosis development and plaque rupture. In this study, the correlation of hs-CRP and IL-6 was investigated in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS).
High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T is a useful tool for diagnosing myocardial ischemia. However, its role in the prognosis of patients with acute myocardial infarction has not been studied. Here, the prognostic value of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T for patients with acute myocardial infarction was investigated.
The aim of this study was to investigate the N-terminal brain natriuretic peptide precursor (NT-proBNP) levels in the peripheral blood of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and to provide the basis for its application in the early diagnosis of ACS. A total of 440 patients admitted to the hospital for examination and treatment were enrolled, including 330 patients with ACS and 110 cases in the control group.
Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a complex multifactorial and polygenic disorder that is thought to result from the interaction between an individual’s genetic makeup and various environmental factors. The aim of this study was to investigate the association of a transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) polymorphism (-509C>T) with ACS in a Chinese Han population. The TGF-β1 polymorphism was evaluated in 336 patients with ACS and 396 healthy control subjects by polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism.
