Dr. Golden is Chief of the Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, whose clinical interests include evaluation and treatment of patients with aortic, visceral, renal, carotid and peripheral arterial aneurysms and occlusive disease. He has an NIH-funded laboratory, and his research interests focus on the study of arterial and vein graft wall biology, in order to prevent vessel wall degeneration, vascular stenosis and bypass graft failure. Dr. Golden is exploring the role of growth factors and heat shock proteins in the vessel wall and their influence on current treatment modalities. He is also exploring methods of delivering genes to the vessel wall to control the failure of current treatment modalities.

Our research focuses on understanding the regulation of the vascular smooth muscle response and the vessel wall remodeling response to injury. Atherosclerosis and the restenosis that complicates interventions for arterial disease are problematic and poorly understood. Vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and migration appear integral to the observed pathology, as is the role of cell death. We are using several strategies to understand the regulation of vessel wall biology, to alter that biology and to control the vessel wall response to injury and remodeling in vivo.

Basic fibroblast growth factor has been shown to play a significant role in the arterial wall response to injury. We are using gene transfer techniques to manipulate the vessel wall cells at a molecular level in order to answer questions about the biology of the vessel wall and also to control the vessel wall response to injury. We use adenoviral mediated gene transfer, and we use cell and organ culture, and mouse, rat and rabbit models of arterial injury in addition to a rabbit model of vein graft adaptation to the arterial circulation. In addition to the animal work with histology and electron microscopy, we study smooth muscle proliferation, migration and apoptosis. We examine gene expression including growth factor expression at the protein level with western analysis and immunohistochemistry. We also study with northern analysis and polymerase chain reaction the expression of RNA. The effects of interruption of bFGF signaling with gene transfer have been dramatic. We have observed excellent responses to downregulation of bFGF signaling using adenoviral vectors encoding antisense bFGF and vectors encoding a dominant negative FGF receptor. We are continuing to dissect out the role of bFGF in vivo.

We are also using similar models, assays and methods to examine the role of hyperthermia and heat shock proteins in the vessel wall. We have found significant amelioration of the wall response to injury with induction of heat shock with hyperthermia and also with adenoviral-mediated heat shock protein 70i gene transfer.

Another regulator of smooth muscle growth and function is uteroglobin, also called clara cell protein. It is a multifunctional protein that has effects on platelets and smooth muscle and also acts as an inhibitor of inflammation. Overexpression of uteroglobin in the arterial wall confers protection against the effects of arterial injury, and we are currently using similar models and methods as described above to study this mechanism.

Research fellows have presented at national and regional meetings and won awards. Among others, the laboratory has received research funding from The American Heart Association, Foundations, the VA Merit Review and NHLBI-NIH RO1, and is currently funded through 2006.
