26621340 non-diabetic subjects who were overweight or obesity had significantly lower cardiotrophin-1 concentrations than those with normal weight, and both obesity and being overweight were inversely associated with cardiotrophin-1 levels.
26188636 This paper will review many aspects of CT-1 physiological role in several organs and discuss data for consideration in therapeutic approaches.
25919795 biliary epithelium-derived CT-1 may exert a profibrogenic potential in PCLD.
25689900 Data show that cardiotrophin-1 is positively related to brachial-ankle pulse-wave velocity (baPWV) independent of traditional cardiometabolic risk factors for arterial stiffness.
25025664 this study, even though preliminary and awaiting further confirmation by independent replication, provides first evidence that common genetic variation in CTF1 could contribute to insulin sensitivity in humans.
24401751 Study correlates CT-1 levels with ambulatory and central BP, as well as with pulse wave velocity in patients with essential hypertension.
24366078 exaggerated cardiomyocyte production of cardiotrophin-1 in response to increased left ventricular end-diastolic stress may contribute to fibrosis through stimulation of fibroblasts in heart failure of hypertensive origin.
24344663 CT-1 is differentially induced in the myocardium of infants with congenital cardiac defects depending on hypoxemia, and may mediate myocardial hypertrophy and dysfunction.
24054317 Subjects with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and newly diagnosed diabetes (NDD) have significantly higher CT-1 concentrations than those with normal glucose tolerance. IGT and NDD are positively associated with CT-1 concentrations.
23935888 CT-1 induces the proteolytic potential in human aortic endothelial cells by upregulating MMP-1 expression.
