Soluble vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 and E-selectin in patients with acute myocardial infarction treated with thrombolytic agents.

Published

Journal Article

Twenty-three patients enrolled in th GUSTO-III study underwent serial measurements of soluble vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1) and E-selectin by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay at prespecified time intervals. Soluble VCAM-1, but not E-selectin levels, were increased in patients with acute myocardial infarction, indicating that VCAM-1 may serve as a marker of increased endothelial activation in acute myocardial infarction.
