Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) play important roles in progression of chronic heart failure (HF) by regulating cardiac extracellular matrix metabolism. However, there is no report to investigate the difference of circulating MMP-1 and MMP-2 levels between systolic HF (SHF) and diastolic HF (DHF), particularly in light of acute exacerbation of HF. We assessed 110 HF patients who were admitted because of an acute exacerbation. They were divided into two groups: SHF [n = 68, left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) <45%] or DHF (n = 42, LVEF > or =45%). Ten patients without HF served as controls. Serum MMP-1 and MMP-2, and plasma brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels were examined on admission and at discharge. Serum MMP-1 level was higher on admission in both SHF and DHF than in controls. It was higher in SHF than in DHF and did not change at discharge in both groups. Serum MMP-2 level was equally higher on admission in SHF and DHF than in controls. It decreased in both groups at discharge. Treatment-induced changes in LVEF and BNP level correlated with those in MMP-2 level in SHF but not in DHF. Circulating MMP-1 and MMP-2 levels showed different dynamics between SHF and DHF in acute exacerbation and after treatment. These differences in circulating MMP-1 and MMP-2 levels may be related to the phenotype of HF.
