- Relation Between Coronary Artery Disease, Risk Factors and Intima-Media Thickness of Carotid Artery, Arterial Distensibility and Stiffness Index. Alan, Sait; Ulgen, Mehmet S.; Ozturk, Onder; Alan, Bircan; Ozdemir, Levent; Toprak, Nizamettin // Angiology;May/Jun2003, Vol. 54 Issue 3, p261
Atherosclerosis is a diffuse process that involves vessel structures. In recent years, the relation of noninvasive parameters such as intima-media thickening (IMT), arterial distensibility (AD), and stiffness index (SI) to cardiovascular diseases has been researched. However, we have not found...
- Delivery of Chlamydia pneumoniae to the vessel wall aggravates atherosclerosis in LDLr-/- mice. Hauer, A.D.; de Vos, P.; Peterse, N.; ten Cate, H.; van Berkel, Th.J.C.; Stassen, F.R.M.; Kuiper, J. // Cardiovascular Research;Jan2006, Vol. 69 Issue 1, p280
Abstract: Objective: The role of Chlamydia pneumoniae in atherosclerosis is still debated. In this study a novel mouse model was applied to determine the direct impact of C. pneumoniae on the arterial wall and the development of atherosclerosis. Methods: Direct effects of C. pneumoniae on...
