The switch from anti-inflammatory lipocalin-type prostaglandin D synthase to pro-inflammatory Type 1 inducible membrane-bound prostaglandin E synthase-1 (mPGES-1) in carotid atherosclerotic plaque
macrophages is associated with acute brain ischemia.
In the current study, we tried to detect the correlations of high-sensitivity (hs)-CRP, intima-media thickness, atherosclerotic plaques
and neurological function in patients with atherosclerotic cerebral infarction, to facilitate physicians in diagnosing atherosclerotic cerebral infarction.
The combination of the two supplements has undergone clinical trials in more than 2,000 people with atherosclerotic plaque
, and has demonstrated a significant reduction, not only in plaque progression and texture, but also in prevention of new cardiovascular symptoms.
To test our hypothesis that altered collagen contents by P4H[alpha]1 overexpression affects the development of atherosclerotic plaque
, we studied the development of carotid atherosclerotic lesions of vulnerable and stable phenotypes induced by a perivascular cast .
Apoptosis is a programmed form of cell death that occurs in all major cell types of atherosclerotic plaques
where it is implicated in the development and progression of the disease [1-3].
Tissue samples were obtained from atherectomy of coronary artery or carotid atherosclerotic plaques
by surgeon during CABG.
A mechanistic analysis of the role of microcalcifications in atherosclerotic plaque
stability: potential implications for plaque rupture.
Pregnancy associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A) is not a marker of the vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque
They found that several bacteria were found in the atherosclerotic plaques
and, primarily, the mouth, but also the gut, of the same patient and that the bacteria Pseudomonas luteola and Chlamydia pneumoniae were present in all atherosclerotic plaques
Although the mean atherosclerotic plaque
burden did increase with the 10-year Framingham risk, the correlation between [the FRS] and plaque was fair," Dr.
Of the patients who were found to be in the very-low- and low-risk groups, more than half had visible evidence of atherosclerotic plaque
on CTA, Dr.
The process responsible for the formation of the atherosclerotic plaque
starts with the accumulation of lipoprotein particles (LDL) in the intima; these lipoproteins undergo modifications that include oxidation and glycation.
