OBJECTIVE AND DESIGN: The peptide from C-terminal domain of MCP-1 (Ingramon) has been shown to inhibit monocyte migration and possess anti-inflammatory activity in animal models of inflammation and post-angioplasty restenosis. Here, we investigate the effect of Ingramon treatment on blood levels of acute-phase reactants and chemokines in patients after coronary stenting and the mechanisms of Ingramon anti-inflammatory activity. SUBJECTS: Eighty-seven patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD) who faced the necessity of coronary angiography (CA) were enrolled. In 67 patients, one-stage coronary stenting was performed; 33 of them were treated with Ingramon in addition to standard therapy. Twenty patients underwent CA only. METHODS: High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) and fibrinogen blood levels were detected routinely. The chemokine concentration in plasma was measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) or cytometric bead array-based immunoassay. Intracellular Ca(2+) levels and cell surface integrin exposure were assayed by flow cytometry. MCP-1 dimerization was studied by sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE). MCP-1-heparin binding was assessed with a biosensor and ELISA. RESULTS AND CONCLUSIONS: Ingramon treatment was accompanied by less pronounced elevation of hsCRP and fibrinogen levels and decreased MCP-1 concentration in plasma in patients after coronary stenting. Ingramon had no effect on MCP-1 interaction with cell receptors or MCP-1 dimerization, but inhibited MCP-1 binding to heparin. The anti-inflammatory activity of the peptide may be mediated by an impaired chemokine interaction with glycosaminoglycans.
