|OBJECTIVE: The lipid-derived inflammatory mediators leukotrienes (LTs) are produced during vascular injury. The aim of the present study was to determine the role of LT receptor signaling in the pathophysiology of in-stent stenosis. METHODS AND RESULTS: New Zealand White rabbits were fed 0.3% cholesterol and subjected to angioplasty with balloon dilatation and stent implantation in the right carotid artery. Rabbits treated for 2 weeks with the BLT receptor antagonist BIIL284 (3 mg/kg once daily by oral gavage) displayed a significantly reduced in-stent intimal hyperplasia in carotid arteries compared with vehicle-treated rabbits. In addition, BIIL284 treatment significantly reduced the extracellular matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 and MMP-9 activities in stented arteries. The inhibited MMP-9 activity was correlated with decreased macrophage content in the lesions. The LTB(4)-induced migration of vascular smooth muscle cells was significantly inhibited by transfection with siRNA against MMP-2. Finally, human arteries subjected to ex vivo angioplasty and stent implantation displayed an increased in-stent intimal hyperplasia and higher MMP-2 and -9 activities in the presence of LTB(4). CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest a key role of LT signaling in the extracellular matrix degradation associated with hyperlipidemia and in-stent stenosis. In conclusion, targeting LT receptors may represent a therapeutic strategy in atherosclerosis and interventional cardiology.|
