    Abstract : Background: the arterial tree branches in different parts of human body are sharing the histological and physiological features. Atherosclerosis is a systemic arterial disease, hence is expected to affect to affect more than one arterial system with similar pathologic manifestations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Inflammation in atherosclerosis

    Abstract : Consequences of atherosclerosis may result in a number of diseases of the cardiovascular system that represent serious health problems and major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Although it is initially considered as disease of fibro-lipid and thrombus deposition in the arterial wall, it also involves an ongoing inflammatory response. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of a Passive Immunization Strategy Against Atherosclerosis

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease, characterized by the accumulation of lipids and fibrous tissue in the wall of medium and large-sized arteries. The characteristic culprit of the disease is the atheroma, or atherosclerotic plaque, a patchy thickening of the arterial wall which affects the lumen, inducing various degrees of stenosis.

  4. 4. Fibromodulin and Dystrophin in Atherosclerosis: Novel roles for extracellular matrix in plaque development

    Author : Annelie Shami; Kärlväggsbiologi; []

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease represents nearly half the cases of noncommunicable diseases worldwide and is the leading global cause of death. The main underlying cause is atherosclerosis, and in atherosclerotic plaque progression the structure, composition and integrity of a dynamic extracellular matrix (ECM) is one very important factor.

  5. 5. Gene Expression Profiling of Human Atherosclerosis

    Author : Sara Hägg; Johan Björkegren; Jesper Tegnér; Josefin Skogsberg; Olle Melander; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is a progressive inflammatory disease that causes lipid accumulation in the arterial wall, leading to the formation of plaques. The clinical manifestations of plaque rupture—stroke and myocardial infarction—are increasing worldwide and pose an enormous economic burden for society. READ MORE
