Abstract OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to develop an adenosine-independent, pressure-derived index of coronary stenosis severity. BACKGROUND: Assessment of stenosis severity with fractional flow reserve (FFR) requires that coronary resistance is stable and minimized. This is usually achieved by administration of pharmacological agents such as adenosine. In this 2-part study, we determine whether there is a time when resistance is naturally minimized at rest and assess the diagnostic efficiency, compared with FFR, of a new pressure-derived adenosine-free index of stenosis severity over that time. METHODS: A total of 157 stenoses were assessed. In part 1 (39 stenoses), intracoronary pressure and flow velocity were measured distal to the stenosis; in part 2 (118 stenoses), intracoronary pressure alone was measured. Measurements were made at baseline and under pharmacologic vasodilation with adenosine. RESULTS: Wave-intensity analysis identified a wave-free period in which intracoronary resistance at rest is similar in variability and magnitude (coefficient of variation: 0.08 ± 0.06 and 284 ± 147 mm Hg s/m) to those during FFR (coefficient of variation: 0.08 ± 0.06 and 302 ± 315 mm Hg s/m; p = NS for both). The resting distal-to-proximal pressure ratio during this period, the instantaneous wave-free ratio (iFR), correlated closely with FFR (r = 0.9, p < 0.001) with excellent diagnostic efficiency (receiver-operating characteristic area under the curve of 93\%, at FFR <0.8), specificity, sensitivity, negative and positive predictive values of 91\%, 85\%, 85\%, and 91\%, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Intracoronary resistance is naturally constant and minimized during the wave-free period. The instantaneous wave-free ratio calculated over this period produces a drug-free index of stenosis severity comparable to FFR.

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
