Resistin is thought to play this role by altering the renin angiotensin pathway and vascular remodeling.11 In another study, strong association of raised resistin levels with increased future risk of developing hypertension was observed.12 Different cohort researches derived similar relationship of resistin with myocardial inflammation when strong association of raised serum resistin levels was observed in Spanish adults with the increased future risk of CAD13 as well as with the severity and outcome of cardiovascular disease in a multiethnic research.
The anti-inflammatory effect of either RFAE or GFAE against ISO-induced myocardial inflammation might be to the active compound of frankincense that exhibit anti-inflammatory property in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells and mouse macrophages through inhibition of TNF-[alpha], IL-1[beta], NO and mitogen activated protein kinases (Ammon, 1996; Beheshti and Karimi, 2016).
Tests revealed Reece had myocardial inflammation of the heart muscles caused by a rare infection.
I/R injury causes local myocardial inflammation and apoptosis, which in turn leads to irreversible damage to the myocardium.
Imaging is typically obtained to include echocardiography evaluating for left ventricular function and pericardial effusion, and cardiac MRI to evaluate for pericardial thickening and myocardial inflammation. Guideline-based treatment includes high-dose NSAID therapy (1200 to 1800 mg of ibuprofen) [24].
Therefore, we assessed myocardial inflammation by detecting the protein (Figures 5(a) and 5(b)) and mRNA expression (Figure 5(d)) of TNF-[alpha], the infiltration of cardiac macrophages (F4/80-positive cells, Figures 5(a) and 5(c)), and the mRNA expression of MCP-1 (Figure 5(e)).
Myocardial inflammation in EMB was found in 18 (31.6%) patients, and genomes of cardiotropic viruses were detected by PCR in 17 (29.8%) cases (Table 1).

In clinical practice, myopericarditis is diagnosed by the presence of pericarditis with an elevation of cardiac markers or signs of myocardial inflammation [4].

Due to the rapid resolution of his pulmonary pathology, it was believed that the duration of VA-ECMO served as a bridge to recovery from cytokine-induced myocardial inflammation secondary to RSV as exemplified by serial imaging.
Myocardial inflammation in response to necrotic tissue generally follows as early as 30 min after the AMI, whereas the number of macrophages peaks around day 3 [3-5].
