Intracoronary and peripheral blood levels of TNF-like Cytokine 1A (TL1A) in patients with acute coronary syndrome.
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:TNF-like cytokine 1A (TL1A) is a subgroup of the tumor necrosis factor superfamily that exerts pleiotropic effects on cell proliferation, inflammation, activation, and differentiation of immune cells. The purpose of the current study is to investigate the clinical significance of TL1A expression in coronary and peripheral blood of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) to determine if TL1A levels can serve as an accurate prognostic indicator. METHODS:A total of 141 patients undergoing coronary angiography were divided into 4 groups: Control (n?=?35), Unstable Angina (UA) (n?=?35), acute non-ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) (n?=?37), and acute ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) (n?=?34). The levels of TL1A, MPO, hs-CRP, and IL-10 were detected in coronary and peripheral blood using enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and the MACE incidence rates were compared during 26.3 months of follow-up. RESULTS:TL1A levels were not significantly different between the UA group and control group. In the UA group, TL1A levels were not significantly different between coronary blood and peripheral blood. However, TL1A levels were higher in the STEMI and NSTEMI groups than in the control group (P?
