    Aims Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease regulated by immune mechanisms. CD69 is a cell surface receptor rapidly induced after leukocyte activation at sites of chronic inflammation. Genetic disruption of CD69 in the mouse aggravates collagen-induced arthritis (CIA), and partial...

    In the HIV infection, the short time-scale between the HIV-induced cardiovascular events and the onset of antiretroviral therapy elicits a thrombophilic co-factor that worsens the induced atherosclerosis. We compared the factor VIII plasma activity, previously implicated in arterial and venous...

    Background. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) results in accelerated atherosclerosis that is primarily caused by inflammation, oxidative stress and impaired triglyceride and HDL metabolisms. Several plasma proteins including phospholipid transfer protein (PTLP), cholesteryl ester transfer protein...

    There is considerable epidemiological evidence that workers exposed to carbon disulfide (CS2) develop premature atherosclerosis leading to increased rates of coronary heart disease (CHD), but mechanisms underlying this association remain obscure. The present study documents that occupational...

  • Lipoprotein Lipase and Atherosclerosis. Tsutsumi, K. // Current Vascular Pharmacology;Mar2003, Vol. 1 Issue 1, p11 

    Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) is a rate-limiting enzyme that hydrolyzes circulating triglyceride-rich lipoprotein such as very low density lipoproteins and chylomicrons. A decrease in LPL activity is associated with an increase in plasma triglycerides (TG) and decrease in high density lipoprotein...

    Aim: Several lines of evidence have shown that posttranscriptional regulations play an important role in the modulation of ATP-binding cassette transporter A1 ( ABCA1) expression and function. Results: The clearance of ABCA1 mRNA as well as the trafficking, stability, degradation, and activity...

    NO is produced endogenously from L-arginine by NOSs. Among its multiple activities, the homeostatic control of the vascular endothelium is crucial for atherosclerosis, a pathogenic condition connected with elevated levels of LDL, the main plasma cholesterol carrier. Oxidised LDL is...

    Hyperlipidemia may induce oxidative stress, which is important in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Dioscorea rhizome (DR) is the powdered form of yams, and possesses antioxidant and hypolipidemic function. We therefore investigated the antioxidative and antiatherogenic effects of DR on...
