Thus, effector cells up-regulate the expression of receptors for inflammation-induced endothelial adhesion molecules
and inflammatory chemokines.
To accomplish this, representative circulating endothelial adhesion molecules
, and inflammatory markers of sE-selectin, sVCAM-1, TNF-[alpha], Creatine kinase (CK), hs-CRP, and leukocytes were measured at baseline, 100 km, 200 km, and at the end of the 308 km ultra-marathon race.
5) investigated the levels of soluble endothelial adhesion molecules
(CAMs) and vascular cell adhesion molecule (VCAM-1) intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and E-selectin were compared between patients with poor coronary collaterals and patients with well-developed collaterals in a study published in 2004.
upregulation of expression of endothelial adhesion molecules
Early upregulation of endothelial adhesion molecules
in obese hypertensive men.
Endothelial adhesion molecules
, lipid peroxidation, insulin resistance, and adiponectin were assessed at the start of the study and again after eight weeks.
Nevertheless, cocoa treatment did not significantly reduce blood pressure or improve insulin resistance, and had no significant effects on skeletal muscle capillary recruitment, circulating plasma concentrations of adipocytokines, or endothelial adhesion molecules
In addition to its capacity to induce and maintain vasodilatation, nitric oxide is antiatherogenic by virtue of its ability to reduce the oxidation of low-density lipoproteins, platelet aggregability, smooth muscle cell proliferation, and the expression of endothelial adhesion molecules
