Extracellular matrix (ECM) of tissues, vascular tissue in particular, contains a high concentration of negatively charged glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), which are involved in the regulation of cell motility, cell proliferation and the regulation of enzyme activities. Previously, we have shown that the vascular ECM is capable of binding an extremely...

We present the first steps in the elaboration of an approach of extracellular matrix-targeted local drug delivery (ECM-LDD), designed to provide a high concentration, ubiquitous distribution, and long-term retention of a drug within the vessel wall after local intravascular delivery. The approach is based on the concept of a bifunctional drug...

Several clinical studies have demonstrated an inverse relationship between circulating levels of estrogen and tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA). The present study was designed to test the hypothesis that estrogen lower plasma levels of t-PA by increasing its clearance from the bloodstream. 17α-Ethinyl estradiol (EE) treatment resulted in...

Dextran is used during surgery as a prophylactic agent to prevent deep venous thrombosis. Recently it has been shown that dextran increases t-PA plasma concentrations in patients. As dextran is a potential ligand for the mannose receptor, we studied whether this glucose-polymer would be able to inhibit mannose receptor-mediated clearance of t-PA...
