A single layer of VECs cover the surface of the valves continuing to the endocardium (11) and perform similar functions as the endothelial vascular cells (3, 19, 34).
Meanwhile, a large number of opportunistic pathogens and endotoxins can translocate to the circulation through the injured VECs, leading to distant organ infection, systemic inflammation response and multiple organs dysfunction.
Previous studies have shown that sitagliptin decreases the production of proinflammatory cytokines, increases the biological availability of NO, and protects VECs, thus reducing the formation of atherosclerotic plaques [10,11].
reported that treatment with 100-400 [micro]g/ml THF could significantly attenuate the [H.sub.2][O.sub.2]-induced VECs apoptosis by downregulating the caspase-3 expression respectively [10].
The brain tissues of the sham group exhibited no positive expression of VEGF, while the expressions of VEGF protein and mRNA in the brain tissues of the model control group and the NBP treatment group reached their peaks 1 day after CIR, The expressions of VEGF protein and mRNA in the NBP treatment group were significantly greater than what occurred in the model control group (p < 0,05) (Table 2), The VEGF protein expressions at different time points were mainly concentrated around the infarcted lesions, while only a small amount of positive expressions were in the center of infarcted lesions, The expressions were mainly inside the neurons and glial cells, followed by the VEC (Figures 1 and 2),
albicans , which also showed the maximum number of fungal cell attachment to VECs [Table 2] and [Figure 1].
In general, LPS could activate VECs, and PMNs are generally activated by LPS.
Under normal conditions, TF is expressed by stromal cells, outer blood vessel layers (smooth muscle and adventitia), but not by vascular endothelial cells (VECs) (the inner most layer).
Prior to its introduction, students had to apply to one of 66 local authorities and VECs for grants.
This is associated with a near- complete occlusion of the capillary lumen, florid hypertrophy and hyperplasia of the visceral epithelial cells (VECs), and severe tubulo-interstitial lesions.1
The radiating approach takes into consideration only the radiating part of the total volume equivalent current source (VECS) and linearizes the electromagnetic inverse scattering problem.
