Internal modulation of proteolysis in vascular extracellular matrix remodeling: role of ADAM metallopeptidase with thrombospondin type 1 motif 5 in the development of intracranial aneurysm rupture

Effects of recombinant protein ADAMTS-5 on the development of aneurysmal rupture in male mice. (A) Incidence of aneurysm and rupture rate in sham mice, control (CTRL) IA mice, and recombinant protein ADAMTS-5-administered (rADAMTS-5) IA mice. (B) Symptom-free curve (Kaplan-Meier analysis curve) demonstrated a significant increase in survival in the rADAMTS-5 treatment cohort (log-rank PC) Unruptured aneurysm. (D) No aneurysm. (E) Ruptured aneurysm. *PP
