Abstract OBJECTIVES: This study examined the relation between neurohumoral activation and severity of left ventricular dysfunction and congestive heart failure in a broad group of patients with depressed left ventricular function who were not recruited on the basis of eligibility for a therapeutic trial. BACKGROUND: Previous studies have established the presence of neurohumoral activation in patients with severe congestive heart failure. It is not known whether the activation of these neurohumoral mechanisms is related to an impairment in left ventricular function. METHODS: From the 6,273 patients recruited into the Studies of Left Ventricular Dysfunction Registry (SOLVD), a subgroup of 859 patients were randomly selected, and their plasma norepinephrine, plasma renin activity, arginine vasopressin and atrial natriuretic peptide levels were correlated with clinical findings, New York Heart Association functional class, left ventricular ejection fraction and drug use. RESULTS: There was a weak but significant correlation between ejection fraction and an increase in plasma norepinephrine (rho = -0.18, p < 0.0001), plasma renin activity (rho = -0.24, p < 0.0001) and arginine vasopressin (rho = -0.12, p < 0.003). The only exception was atrial natriuretic peptide, which showed the best correlation to ejection fraction (rho = -0.37, p < 0.0001). Deterioration in functional class was associated more with increases in atrial natriuretic peptide (p = 0.0003) and plasma renin activity (p = 0.0003) and less with an increase in plasma norepinephrine. Of the clinical variables, elevated jugular venous pressure and third heart sound (S3) gallop were significantly associated with increased levels of plasma norepinephrine, plasma renin activity and atrial natriuretic peptide. We then compared the relation of neurohormones with clinical signs, functional status, ejection fraction and drug therapy and controlled for mutual interactive effects. After adjustment, a decrease in ejection fraction was still significantly related to an increase in plasma norepinephrine, plasma renin activity and atrial natriuretic peptide. In contrast, only a difference between functional classes I and III/IV was associated with an increase in plasma renin activity and atrial natriuretic peptide levels. CONCLUSIONS: Neurohumoral activation in patients with heart failure is related to severity of left ventricular functional depression, and this relation is independent of functional class or concomitant drug therapy.

    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.
