Nuclear factor kappa B in patients with a history of unstable angina: case re-opened

Nuclear factor kappa B in patients with a history of unstable angina: case re-opened This study aims at assessing NF-kB activity in unstable angina (UA) patients free of symptoms after a 1 year follow-up (1YFU). Plasma oxidized low-density lipoproteins (oxLDL), circulating NF-kB, Interleukin 6 (IL-6) and Interleukin 1β (IL-1β), high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), as markers of oxidative stress and inflammation and plasma double- stranded DNA (ds-DNA), as marker of Neutrophil Extracellular Traps (NETs), were measured in 23 of the previously enrolled 27 UA patients. These measurements were compared to the UA data at baseline, and then compared to the data derived from the stable angina (SA) and controls (C) enrolled in our previous study (we demonstrated that UA had higher levels of NF-kB compared to SA and C). After a 1YFU, UA patients show a significant decrease in NF-kB, IL-6, hs-CRP, oxLDL, and ds-DNA plasma levels (p < 0.001) and in IL-1β and White Blood Cells (WBC) (p < 0.005), without differences in lipid and glucose assessment. If compared to SA and C, UA after a 1YFU have higher levels of NF-kB, IL-6, ds-DNA, WBC, and oxLDL compared to C (p < 0.001), but only IL-6 is higher than SA (p < 0.001).

Abstract

This study aims at assessing NF-kB activity in unstable angina (UA) patients free of symptoms after a 1 year follow-up (1YFU). Plasma oxidized low-density lipoproteins (oxLDL), circulating NF-kB, Interleukin 6 (IL-6) and Interleukin 1β (IL-1β), high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), as markers of oxidative stress and inflammation and plasma double- stranded DNA (ds-DNA), as marker of Neutrophil Extracellular Traps (NETs), were measured in 23 of the previously enrolled 27 UA patients. These measurements were compared to the UA data at baseline, and then compared to the data derived from the stable angina (SA) and controls (C) enrolled in our previous study (we demonstrated that UA had higher levels of NF-kB compared to SA and C). After a 1YFU, UA patients show a significant decrease in NF-kB, IL-6, hs-CRP, oxLDL, and ds-DNA plasma levels (p < 0.001) and in IL-1β and White Blood Cells (WBC) (p < 0.005), without differences in lipid and glucose assessment. If compared to SA and C, UA after a 1YFU have higher levels of NF-kB, IL-6, ds-DNA, WBC, and oxLDL compared to C (p < 0.001), but only IL-6 is higher than SA (p < 0.001). No differences are found in lipid and glucose assessment. After a
