Circulating levels of soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (sICAM-1) independently predict depressive symptom severity after 12 months in heart failure patients.

Abstract

Objective. To determine whether inflammatory markers prospectively predict depressive symptom severity 12 months later in heart failure (HF) patients. Methods. In 30 HF patients we assessed depressive symptom severity by the Beck depression inventory (BDI) at baseline as well as 12 months later. We measured circulating levels of the soluble intercellular adhesion molecule (sICAM)-1, the cytokine interleukin (IL)-6 and the acute phase protein C-reactive protein (CRP) at baseline assessment. Results. sICAM-1 (r=.38, p=.045) but not CRP or IL-6 correlated with BDI scores 12 months later. Hierarchical linear regression analysis revealed that independent of baseline BDI assessment, cardiovascular risk factors, indicators of HF disease severity, and medication intake, sICAM-1 significantly predicted BDI scores 12 months later. sICAM-1 independently explained between 7% (beta=.26, p=.040) and 10% (beta=.35, p=.045) of the total variance in BDI scores 12 months later. Conclusion. The findings from this exploratory analysis suggest that the adhesion molecule sICAM-1 is an independent predictor of depressive symptoms 12 months later in HF patients. Our prospective findings support the suggested role for inflammation in increasing future depressive symptom severity and extend this linkage for the first time to HF.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
