Specular microscopy and confocal microscopy are employed for morphological and morphometric evaluation of endothelial cells in vivo (CANAVAGH et al., 2000; ABIB et al., 2012; NAGATSUYU et al., 2014; BERCHT et al., 2015).
The mean value of Corneal Endothelial Cell Density (ECD) was 2021.548 +- 528.142 cells/mm2 in PXS patients and the mean value of ECD in healthy subjects was 2772.692 +- 383.395 cells/mm2 with statistically significant (p-value <0.05) difference between both groups showing that the patients with PXS had significantly lower ECD in comparison to healthy controls.
Experimental studies have demonstrated a relationship between elevated IOP and endothelial cell loss in animal models, and a clinical study in glaucoma patients with healthy corneas showed that the patients had a significantly lower ECD compared with a control group with normal IOP [54, 55].
In vitro models of endothelial cells from lung tissue are important tools for understanding the interactions between the endothelium and leukocyte trafficking [16].
Most frequent macrophages and macrophage-derived cells showed TNFalpha positivity (14 cases, 43.74% showed TNFalpha faint positivity in macrophages and 12 cases of 17, 70.58% showed similar positivity in multinucleated giant cells); less numerous cases had mesenchymal cells positivity (15 cases, 46.875%) and endothelial cells positivity (8 cases, 25.00%) (Figure 2(f)).
The data in this study imply that leptin/LEPR interaction stimulated IL-8 production in endothelial cells, consequently promoting neutrophil chemotaxis and PE progression.
E-selectin expression is found only on endothelial cells after activation of proinflammatory cytokines (interleukin-1, tumor necrosis factor) or endotoxin.
Moreover, reduced levels of Kallikreins 9,11, and 12, three serine proteases with angiogenic activity, have been observed in SSc endothelial cell [41, 42].
Hyperglycemia impairs autophagy in HUVECs through inhibition of the phosphorylation of AMPK, activating the downstream effector mTOR through mTOR phosphorylation and leading to endothelial cell damage.
