REMOVAL OF CHOLESTEROL AND OTHER LIPIDS FROM EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL AND HUMAN ATHEROMATOUS ARTERIES BY DILUTE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE
- Patterns of Sudanophilic Lesions at Ostia of Descending Thoracic and Abdominal Aorta in Cholesterol-Fed Adult Rabbits. Shahid, Uzma; Butt, Shadab Ahmed; Zareen, Nusrat // International Journal of Morphology;2011, Vol. 29 Issue 3, p742
Sudan-positive atherosclerotic lesions preferentially occur at downstream and lateral margins of arterial branch ostia in human neonates and weanling rabbits but tend to develop at lateral and upstream margins in old subjects. We investigated (i) the pattern of sudanophilic lesions at aortic...
- Localization of oxidized HDL in atheromatous plaques and oxidized HDL binding sites on human aortic endothelial cells. Nakajima, Takanori; Origuchi, Nobuto; Matsunaga, Toshiyuki; Kawai, Shin-ichiroh; Hokari, Shigeru; Nakamura, Hiroaki; Inoue, Ikuo; Katayama, Shigehiro; Nagata, Atsuo; Komoda, Tsugikazu // Annals of Clinical Biochemistry;Mar2000, Vol. 37 Issue 2, p179
We examined the localization of oxidized high-density lipoprotein (HDL) in atheromatous plaques and the oxidized HDL binding sites on endothelial cells. Histochemical analysis using CuSO4-oxidized HDL-specific 9F5-3a antibody indicated the presence of oxidized HDL in the intima of atheromatous...
- SPONTANEOUS RUPTURE OF THE THORACIC AORTA THROUGH AN ATHEROMATOUS PLAQUE. Rodriguez, Héctor F.; Rivera, Edwin // Annals of Internal Medicine;Feb61, Vol. 54 Issue 2, p307
Discusses the case of a female patient with spontaneous rupture of the aorta in its thoracic portion through an atheromatous plaque. Patient medical history; Signs and symptoms; Diagnosis; Patient death due to severe hemoptysis.
- Embolic Stroke Secondary to an Aortic Arch Tumor. Urrutia, Victor // Angiology;Nov2000, Vol. 51 Issue 11, p959
Presents a case report on embolic stroke secondary to an aortic arch tumor. Differentiation of aortic tumors from atherosclerotic plaque; Use of magnetic resonance in the diagnosis; Presentation of literature reviews on aortic masses.
- High-Grade Atherosclerosis of the Aorta. Siddiqui, Mumtaz A.; Holmberg, Mark J.; Khan, Ijaz A. // Texas Heart Institute Journal;2002, Vol. 29 Issue 1, p60
Presents cases of aortic atherosclerosis. Information on aortic atheromas; Procedure for the evaluation and diagnosis of aortic atherosclerosis; Risk of the development of thromboemboli.
- Protruding Atheromas in the Thoracic Aorta and Systemic Embolization. Tunick, Paul T.; Perez, John L.; Kronzon, Itzhak // Annals of Internal Medicine;9/15/91, Vol. 115 Issue 6, p423
Present a study which determined whether protruding atheromas in the thoracic aorta are a risk factor for systemic embolization. Design and setting of the study; Case patients; Statistical analysis.
- New Insights into Plaque Stabilisation by Lipid Lowering. Libby, P.; Aikawa, M. // Drugs;Dec1998 Supplement 1, Vol. 56 Issue 6, p9
Thrombosis on the substrate of a disrupted plaque causes most acute coronary events. The physical integrity of the plaque thus governs the most important clinical manifestations of atherosclerosis. Of particular importance is the extracellular matrix of the fibrous capsule overlying the...
- Porphyromonas gingivalis Dihydroceramides Induce Apoptosis in Endothelial Cells. Zahlten, J.; Riep, B.; Nichols, F. C.; Walter, C.; Schmeck, B.; Bernimoulin, J.-P.; Hippenstiel, S. // Journal of Dental Research;Jun2007, Vol. 86 Issue 6, p635
Porphyromonas gingivalis dihydroceramides are found in extracts of calculus-contaminated root surfaces, diseased gingival tissue, and atherosclerotic plaques. These ceramides have been shown to promote inflammatory secretory responses in gingival fibroblasts. Little is known about their effects...
- Follicular fluid hydrogen peroxide and lipid hydroperoxide in bovine antral follicles of various size, atresia, and dominance status. Hennet, Margo; Yu, Hope; Combelles, Catherine // Journal of Assisted Reproduction & Genetics;Mar2013, Vol. 30 Issue 3, p333
Purpose: To avoid inducing a state of oxidative stress (OS), assisted reproductive technologies (ART) must maintain a balance of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidants during the in vitro culture of oocytes. However, oocyte requirements and tolerance thresholds for ROS during in vivo...
