Abstract

Development of thrombolytic therapy as a treatment for myocardial infarction has focused attention on the events that occur upon reperfusion of ischemic myocardial tissue. Although it is well documented that salvage of the ischemic myocardium is dependent upon timely reperfusion, it is ...read more

Ischemia & Reperfusion

Ischemia and reperfusion is a pathological condition characterized by an initial restriction of blood supply to an organ followed by the subsequent restoration of perfusion and concomitant reoxygenation. Restoration of blood flow and reoxygenation is frequently associated with an exacerbation of tissue injury and a profound inflammatory response (called ‘reperfusion injury’). Discover the latest research on ischemia and reperfusion here.

Adhesion Molecules in Health and Disease

Cell adhesion molecules are a subset of cell adhesion proteins located on the cell surface involved in binding with other cells or with the extracellular matrix in the process called cell adhesion. In essence, cell adhesion molecules help cells stick to each other and to their surroundings. Cell adhesion is a crucial component in maintaining tissue structure and function. Discover the latest research on adhesion molecule and their role in health and disease here.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.
