ABSTRACT
Studies the pathogenic factors in atherosclerosis by researchers from Piscataway, New Jersey. Description of the morphological characteristics of atherosclerosis; Acceptance of the widely held views that fatty flecks and streaks are small, uncomplicated lesions of atherosclerosis; Observation on the high variability of the characteristic lesions of atherosclerosis; Elucidation on the significant role played by structural characteristics of the arterial wall during atherogenesis.
