Matrix Metalloproteinase-9

Test Information:

MMP-9 is a marker of inflammation, tissue remodeling, wound healing, and mobilization of tissue-bound growth factors and cytokines. Its expression correlates with abnormal collagen deposition accompanying pancreatic cancer, with lymph node metastasis in breast cancer and with regional vessel invasion by giant cell tumor or bone. MMP-9 contributes to the pathogenesis of numerous clinical disease states, including rheumatic arthritis, coronary artery disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, multiple sclerosis, asthma, and cancer. Current research is exploring the role of this enzyme as a potential drug target.
