Interestingly, levels of MCP-1
and CCR2 returned to baseline or lower by 16 weeks in mice exhibiting movement-provoked pain behaviors.
can be induced in numerous cell types, including vascular endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, monocytes/macrophages and cardiacmyocytes (Xia and Frangogiannis 2007).
Levels of TNF-a MCP-1
, RBP-4 were also lower in the ChromeMate group compared to the control group; the chromium picofinate group did not experience any reduction in those markers.
Additionally, CRP has been postulated to have a causal role in atherosclerosis (12-14) through the induction of MCP-1
(15) and tissue factor (TF) expression (16).
Previously completed studies in animal models of diabetes and lupus nephritis demonstrate that treatment with Spiegelmer([R]) MCP-1
antagonists significantly delay decline in kidney function as well as disease progression.
to directly demonstrate that MCP-1
critically contributes to failure of an AV fistula," the researchers write.
Because IL-8, MCP-1
, EGF, and VEGF may be used as diagnostic biochemical markers, the main factors influencing the biological variation of these markers and adequate reference values must be established.
Compugen's CGEN-54 is a truncated variant of MCP-1
that is encoded by a novel splice variant, and the results to be presented at the Conference demonstrate the molecule's ability to inhibit the MCP-1
/CCR2 pathway both in-vitro and in-vivo.
They found that the levels of MCP-1
were significantly elevated in extremely obese patients.
The recombinant protein MCP-1
and IL-6 calibrators provided with the ELISA and Luminex reagents were added into normal healthy human plasma.
The work reported in this research paper revealed that Product R increases the production and secretion of both IL-8 and MCP-1
by a human monocytic cell line and by primary human monocytes.
Consistent with this, polymorphisms have been described in the genes encoding for MCP-1
, RANTES, CCR5, and SDF-1 (28-31).
