Matrix Metalloproteinases - keys to healthier blood vessels in diabetes?

Author

  • Hindrik Mulder

Summary, in English

In this issue of J Endocrinol, Schuyler et al. show that intimal lesions in atherosclerosis-prone diabetic apoE-/- mice are reduced by insulin treatment. An increase of metalloproteinase-9 expression was observed in untreated diabetic apoE-/- mice; this was absent in insulin-treated mice. The study suggests that hindering of tissue-remodeling metalloproteinases may account for the beneficial effects of proper metabolic control in patients with diabetes. This clinically relevant finding prompts further exploration.
