To clarify the mechanism by which visceral fat accumulation causes a variety of metabolic and vascular diseases, we studied the molecular characteristics of adipose tissue and adipocytes by investigating expressed genes in visceral and subcutaneous adipocytes and revealed that adipocytes, especially visceral adipocytes, secrete a variety of bioactive substances, the so-called adipocytokines.
This abnormal hypercontraction is generally known to cause acute vasospasm, microcirculatory ischemia, increased systemic blood pressure, and ultimately, possible vascular diseases (Bohr et al.

Minister stressed upon the doctors community for launching massive awareness campaign for sensitizing the people about hazardous aspects of smoking with a view to prevent cardio vascular diseases besides lungs, bronchitis and various types of lungs cancer.
"If someone is found to have an alteration or mutation in this gene, we can do screening for vascular diseases, and if diagnosed with disease, they can take medications and undergo surgical approaches to prevent premature death or disability," said Milewicz.
The 32 contributions in this collection summarize current knowledge about the molecular biology and genetics of myocardial disease, coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, vascular diseases, and cardiovascular risk factors.
Prevalence of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and related vascular diseases in southwestern arseniasis-endemic and nonendemic areas in Taiwan.
40 million in the institute and hospital has become state of the art institute for the treatment of cardio vascular diseases. A spokesman said that FIC has been made fully functional within a short span of time and it will be made state of the art Institute for the patients of Cardio Vascular diseases.
"A large number of human diseases are mimicked in the tat model, and having the genome sequence lets us easily walk between what we understand in the physiology and biology in the rat, and translate that to a better understanding of human biology, and disease processes," says Susan Old, associate director of the Clinical and Molecular Disease Program in the NHLBI Division of Heart and Vascular Diseases and a project officer for the sequencing initiative.
