Abstract

Serum levels of soluble Fas ligand (sFasL) increased with the severity of congestive heart failure (p <0.01), and the percentages of apoptotic myocytes detected by in situ DNA nick-end labeling were significantly higher in the patients with increased levels of sFasL than in those with normal levels of sFasL (p <0.05). These findings indicated that sFasL may play an important role in pathogenesis of myocarditis.
