Angiopoietin-2 correlates with pulmonary embolism severity
#Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is a common and potentially fatal disease. The cause is usually a blood clot in the leg that travels to the lung and blocks blood flow . #Angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2) is a signaling molecule that is upregulated in response to insufficient tissue oxygen supply. In a recent study scientists investigated the potential role of Ang2 as a #risk factor in patients with acute PE. The results indicate that Ang2 correlates with PE severity, right ventricular dysfunction, and need for #ICU admission. Thus, Ang-2 holds promise as a novel marker that can aid in risk stratification for this patient population.
