Many evidences show that elevated plasma levels of uric acid (UA) are associated to the increased risk of developing athero-thrombotic cardiovascular events. Hyperuricemia is a risk factors for endothelial dysfunction (ED). ED is involved in the pathophysiology of athero-thrombosis since dysfunctional cells lose their physiological, antithrombotic properties. We have investigated whether UA might promote ED by modulating the TF/TFPI balance finally changing the antithrombotic characteristics of endothelial cells.

Abstract

Many evidences show that elevated plasma levels of uric acid (UA) are associated to the increased risk of developing athero-thrombotic cardiovascular events. Hyperuricemia is a risk factors for endothelial dysfunction (ED). ED is involved in the pathophysiology of athero-thrombosis since dysfunctional cells lose their physiological, antithrombotic properties. We have investigated whether UA might promote ED by modulating the TF/TFPI balance finally changing the antithrombotic characteristics of endothelial cells.
