Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) may play a pathophysiological role in the development of diabetic nephropathy (DN). We hypothesized that urinary MMP activity in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is related to a decline in renal function. We determined MMP-2, -8 and -9 activity in 24-h urine collections in relation to risk factors...

In a pioneer study, we showed 10 years ago that enhanced tissue levels of the matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) MMP-2 and MMP-9 in gastric cancers, as determined by zymography, were related with worse overall survival of the patients. To corroborate these observations, we now assessed MMP-2 and MMP-9 with new techniques in an expanded group of...
