  • Is systemic elastin degradation the mechanism of increased arterial stiffness and skin wrinkling in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease? (bmj.com)
  • Men with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have increased skin elastin degradation compared with controls matched for age and smoking history, and this was associated with arterial stiffness and emphysema severity. (bmj.com)
  • area
  • We attempted to restore the elastic properties of the scar by implanting the infarct area with cells expressing elastin. (ahajournals.org)
  • Seven days after coronary artery ligation, BMSCs transfected with genes for either adeno-elastin (BMSC+Elastin) or adeno-green fluorescence protein (BMSC), or media (control group) were injected into the infarct area of adult rats (n=8/group). (ahajournals.org)

  • Methods The authors measured cutaneous elastin degradation using immunohistochemistry (percentage area of elastin fibres) in sun-exposed (exposed) and non-sun-exposed (non-exposed) skin biopsies in 16 men with COPD and 15 controls matched for age and cigarette smoke exposure. (bmj.com)
