Glycocalyx Endothelial Integrity Patient Oncology Study Using Microvascular Health Solutions GlycoCheck Medical Test Device
CHATTANOOGA, TN, USA, Aug. 2, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Microvascular Health Solutions (MVHS), a subsidiary of BioRegenx, announces that a new peer-reviewed study using GlycoCheck, an exclusively distributed medical testing device worldwide by MVHS, has been released. The study, published by the International Journal of Cardiology, is titled Endothelial Glycocalyx Integrity in Oncology Patients. The study was conducted at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, School of Medicine, Department of Cardiology, Attikon University Hospital, Athens, Greece, and led by Professor Ignatios Ikonomidis.
Cancer is associated with early changes in the cardiovascular (CV) system before overt cardiotoxicity. Endothelial dysfunction is induced by chemotherapy regimens, but prior to this study, there were no data on endothelial glycocalyx in cancer patients.
Sixty-four cancer patients (65.6% with solid tumors and 34.4% with hematological malignancies) and 32 controls from the cardiology outpatient clinic were included in the study.
The PBR 5-25 was significantly increased in cancer patients compared to controls (2.11 ± 0.36 vs 1.97 ± 0.21, p = 0.025). Alteration in endothelial glycocalyx thickness was independent of traditional CV risk factors and cancer therapy, but proportional to disease stage (r = 0.337, p = 0.044).
The study concludes that endothelial function as assessed by endothelial glycocalyx thickness is significantly impaired in cancer patients without overt cardiotoxicity. This implies that the PBR 5-25 could be useful for the early assessment of microvascular and endothelial cancer toxicity. Read the full study here.
