Effects of Standard Treatment of Acute Coronary Syndromes on Macrophage Activity as Measured by Serum Neopterin

2014-07-23 21:13:44 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The study is a prospective observational study focused on monitoring the effects of various treatment options for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) patients by measuring serum neopterin levels. Serum neopterin is a marker for measuring macrophage activation. Prior studies have illustrated that there are elevated serum neopterin levels in ACS. The investigators' study focused on comparing different treatment arms with regard to their neopterin levels and correlating neopterin levels to the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) risk score. Patients enrolled are those with ACS. Blood samples are drawn at presentation, and at 72 hours after admission, or at office visits and at 72 hours later. Neopterin levels are measured via a commercially available assay.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A piperazine derivative and PLATELET AGGREGATION INHIBITOR that is used to prevent THROMBOSIS in patients with ACUTE CORONARY SYNDROME; UNSTABLE ANGINA and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, as well as in those undergoing PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY INTERVENTIONS.

Abnormal balloon- or sac-like dilatation in the wall of CORONARY VESSELS. Most coronary aneurysms are due to CORONARY ATHEROSCLEROSIS, and the rest are due to inflammatory diseases, such as KAWASAKI DISEASE.

An episode of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA that generally lasts longer than a transient anginal episode but that does not usually result in MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.

Malformations of CORONARY VESSELS, either arteries or veins. Included are anomalous origins of coronary arteries; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; CORONARY ANEURYSM; MYOCARDIAL BRIDGING; and others.
