TGFbeta3 was expressed mainly in endothelial cells (26 positive cases, 81.25%; 12 cases 1+ and 14 cases 2+) and mesenchymal cells (23 cases, 71.87%, all faint positive 1+) and less frequently in macrophages (14 positive cases, 43.74%; 7 cases 1+ and 7 cases 2+) and multinucleated giant cells (10 positive cases, 58.82%; 5 cases 1+ and 5 cases 2+ of 17 cases with multinucleated giant cells) (Figure 2(c)).
LEPR immunostaining was detected in the cytoplasm and nucleus of the UC artery and vein endothelial cells. LEPR HSCOREs were significantly different between the control vs.
At the site of inflammation, proinflammatory cytokines lead to increased expression of ICAM-1 on vascular endothelium and activation of leukocyte integrins, which results in the adhesion of leukocytes to endothelial cells and migration to the site of inflammation.
Thus, in SSc an endothelial cell damage has been observed already in early phases of the disease, which probably together with neural dysfunctions, and other intravascular alterations, is in turn involved in inducing vascular injury [3, 4, 10].
