Potential therapeutic effect of SO₂ on fibrosis. Histol Histopathol. 2019 Oct 11;:18169 Authors: Wang XB, Cui H, Du JB Abstract Fibrosis is a pathological feature of most chronic diseases and leads to the dysfunction of various organs. However, there is currently no effective method for treating fibrosis. In recent years, a small gas, sulfur dioxide (SO₂), which can be generated endogenously in mammals, has been found to have vasorelaxation activity, improve cardiac function and decrease myocardial injury. Endogenous SO₂ also mediates the process of fibrosis. Inhibition of endogenous SO₂ can ag...

Publication date: Available online 11 October 2019Source: Chemico-Biological InteractionsAuthor(s): Aiping Jin, Bing Li, Wei Li, Dan XiaoAbstractCardiomyocyte injury induced by acute myocardial infarction contributes to myocardial dysfunction. Accumulating evidence has demonstrated that pleckstrin homology domain leucine-rich repeat protein phosphatase 2 (PHLPP2) is a cytoprotective protein that protects against various adverse injuries. However, whether PHLPP2 participates in regulating myocardial-infarction-induced cardiomyocyte injury remains unknown. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the biological role and...

This study tests the hypothesis that the lipoxygenase (LOX) pathway mediates protease-activated receptor (PAR) 2-induced activation of the transient receptor potential vanilloid receptor 1 (TRPV1) to protect the heart from ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. SLIGRL, a PAR2 activating peptide, was administered prior to reperfusion following left anterior descending coronary artery ligation in wild type (WT) and TRPV1 knockout (TRPV1-/-) mice. In a Langendorffly perfused heart I/R model, hemodynamic parameters, including left ventricular end-diastolic pressure, left ventricular developed pressure, coronary blood flow and left...

Conclusions: The findings of this meta-analysis study suggested that TEVAR resulted in more short-term survival benefits. Moreover, the reduced risk of acute renal failure, respiratory failure and bleeding was detected in TEVAR group. The treatment effects of TEVAR versus OCSR on specific complications should be further verified by a study with high-level of evidence. Key message Comprehensive collected studies investigated the treatment effectiveness between TEVAR and OCSR for TBAD patients TEVAR resulted in more survival benefits, in addition to lower risk of acute renal failure, respiratory failure and bleeding The resu...
