    • Angiotensin-(1-9) reduces cardiovascular and renal inflammation in experimental renin-independent hypertension 

      González, Leticia; Novoa, Ulises; Moya, Jackeline; Gabrielli, Luigi; Jalil Milad, Jorge; García Nannig, Lorena; Chiong Lay, Mario; Lavandero González, Sergio; Ocaranza, María Paz (Elsevier Inc., 2018)
      © 2018 Elsevier Inc. Hypertension-induced cardiovascular and renal damage can be mediated by activation of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. There are different factors beyond renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system ...

      Castro Agüero, Pablo; Gabrielli, Luigi A.; Fasce, Fabrizio; Verdejo, Hugo; Greig, Douglas; Llevaneras, Silvana; Ferrada, Marcela; Hernández, Claudia; Godoy, Iván; García Nannig, Lorena; Mellado, Rose Marie; Sepúlveda, Pablo; Lavandero González, Sergio (ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2009-03-10)
      Meeting Abstract
    • Inflamación y disfunción endotelial en pacientes con insuficiencia cardiaca crónica 

      Greig, Douglas; Castro, Pablo; Gabrielli, Luigi A.; Miranda, Rodrigo; Verdejo, Hugo; Alcaíno Gálvez, Hernán Alejandro; Bustos, Carlos; Chiong Lay, Mario; Godoy, Iván; Mellado, Rose Marie; García Nannig, Lorena; Salas, Daniela; Vivar Sánchez, Raúl; Vukasovic Ramírez, José Luis; Concepción, Roberto; Díaz Araya, Guillermo (SOC MEDICA SANTIAGO, 2008-06)
      Background: In chronic heart failure (CHF), endothelial dysfunction (ED) is a consequence of an imbalance of vascular tone regulating substances. The relationship between ED and inflammation has not been fully investigated. ...
    • Markedly increased Rho-kinase activity in circulating leukocytes in patients with chronic heart failure 

      Ocaranza, María Paz; Gabrielli, Luigi A.; Mora, Italo; García Nannig, Lorena; McNab, Paul; Godoy, Iván; Braun, Sandra; Córdova, Samuel; Castro, Pablo; Novoa, Ulises; Chiong Lay, Mario; Lavandero González, Sergio; Jalil, E. (MOSBY-ELSEVIER, 2011-05)
      Background The small guanosine triphosphatase Rho and its target Rho-kinase have significant roles in experimental remodeling and ventricular dysfunction, but no data are available on Rho-kinase activation in patients with ...
    • Pleiotropic effects of atorvastatin in heart failure: Role in oxidative stress, inflammation, endothelial function, and exercise capacity 

      Castro, P.; Miranda, Rodrigo; Verdejo, Hugo; Greig, Douglas; Gabrielli, Luigi A.; Alcaíno Olivares, Hernán Alejandro; Chiong Lay, Mario; Bustos Contreras, Carlos Andrés; García Nannig, Lorena; Mellado, Rose Marie; Vukasovic Ramírez, José Luis; Godoy, Iván; Lavandero González, Sergio (ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2008-04)
      Background: Increased oxidative stress, a common feature in chronic heart failure, has been associated with inflammation, endothelial dysfunction, and extracellular matrix degradation. Statins have known anti-inflammatory ...
    • Xanthine-oxidase inhibitors and statins in chronic heart failure: Effects on vascular and functional parameters 

      Greig, Douglas; Alcaíno Gálvez, Hernán Alejandro; Castro Gálvez, Pablo; García Nannig, Lorena; Verdejo, Hugo E.; Navarro, Mario; López, Rafael; Mellado, Rose Marie; Tapia Mamani, Fabiola Karina; Gabrielli, Luigi A.; Nogerol, Camilo; Chiong Lay, Mario; Godoy, Iván; Lavandero González, Sergio (ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2011-04)
      Increased oxidative stress in heart failure (HF) leads to inflammation and endothelial dysfunction (ED). Both statins and allopurinol have known anti-oxidant properties, but their utility in HF has not been fully assessed.
