In addition to the well-recognized occurrence of thrombosis as a late complication of atherosclerosis, there is now good evidence that recurrent mural thrombosis is an important factor in the progress of many lesions from a relatively early stage. Many of the typical features of the lesion may be the result of this process, but it has yet to be established that lesions can arise entirely in this way.

    Atherosclerosis, one of the main causes of cardiovascular diseases, is a complex process that involves manifold factors. Besides the vascular lipids accumulation, inflammatory factors could be considered as a proatherogenic factor - RCAN1. RCAN1 is a regulator of calcineurin, both of them being...
