Teams at the CHU hospital and the ULg are on the trail of markers that can predict the instability of abdominal aneurysms.

They examined, among other things, the proteins in the extracellular matrix of the aortic walls and shown a correlation between the instability of an aneurysm and the presence of MMP-9 and -2, enzymes that participate in the deterioration of elastin and collagens.
