E-selectin and TFPI are associated with carotid intima-media thickness in stable IHD patients: the baseline findings of the MIAMI study


, : E-selectin and TFPI are associated with carotid intima-media thickness in stable IHD patients: the baseline findings of the MIAMI study. Nutrition, Metabolism, and Cardiovascular Diseases 18(4): 320-328

MIAMI was a prospective multicenter clinical study designed to investigate the relationship between changes in carotid intima-media thickness (C-IMT) and those in the levels of circulating markers of inflammation, thrombosis and endothelial dysfunction. The study was performed in a group of stable coronary patients treated for two years with a moderate dosage of atorvastatin (20mg/day). In this paper the cross-sectional relationship between C-IMT and the same circulating markers of inflammation, thrombosis and endothelial dysfunction measured at baseline was investigated. Eighty-five subjects that had not used statins for at least two months were enrolled in the study. At time of enrollment, the levels of vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1), intracellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), E-selectin, interleukin (IL)-6, IL-8, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), tissue factor (TF), tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI), von Willebrand factor (vWF), fibrinogen, total cholesterol (TC), high-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and triglycerides were measured, in parallel with C-IMT assessment. In cross-sectional analyses, markers of endothelial perturbation (i.e. E-selectin) and TFPI were more strongly correlated with arherosclerotic burden than markers of inflammation. The baseline picture in this study indicates that E-selectin and TFPI are linked with atherosclerotic burden.
