Waksman presented results that support PhotoPoint's ability to reduce problematic inflammatory cells in atherosclerotic plaque
of Georgetown University Medical School and Washington Hospital Center will present preclinical results for prevention of intracoronary restenosis and treatment of atherosclerotic plaque
on Friday, September 27, at two scientific symposia: "Vulnerable Plaque: Emerging Diagnostic and Therapeutic Modalities" and "Innovative Devices and Futuristic Therapies.
Volcano Corporation today announced the commercial launch of its patented VH(TM) IVUS system -- the first technology to enable real time (in the cardiac catheterization lab) compositional assessment of atherosclerotic plaques
in coronary arteries.
DG031's impact on one of the key mechanisms in the onset of heart attack: the inflammation and destabilization of atherosclerotic plaques
A persistent finding in the histopathologic specimens of ruptured atherosclerotic plaques
has been the presence of activated macrophages within the plaque.
pneumoniae heat shock protein (HSP-60) can activate both macrophage tumor necrosis factor-alpha and expression of matrix-degrading proteinases that may weaken atherosclerotic plaques
, rendering them susceptible to rupture and hence thrombosis.
And the isoflavones found in soy protein have antioxidant properties, which help to keep cholesterol from causing atherosclerotic plaques
Depending upon which blood vessels they block, atherosclerotic plaques
can lead to heart attacks, gangrene, or strokes.
sPLA2 is in a family of pro-inflammatory enzymes linked to the formation and destabilization of atherosclerotic plaques
targeted drug delivery to atherosclerotic plaques
is a number one priority in modern healthcare.
The first study, presented by cardiology fellow Nikolaos Alexopoulos, MD, now at the University of Athens, Greece, shows that patients with a larger volume of epicardial adipose tissue tend to have the types of atherosclerotic plaques
cardiologists deem most dangerous: non-calcified plaques.
The results of IBIS-2 indicated that many coronary vessels with mild angiographic disease have large atherosclerotic plaques
, which can be identified by VH(R) IVUS.
The investigators found that atherosclerotic tissue obtained from carotid endarterectomy in 15 patients generated products unique to the ozone oxidation of cholesterol; sample atherosclerotic plaques
produced ozone when the leukocytes within the diseased arteries were activated in vitro.
This heightens the risk of atherosclerotic plaques
, Barzilai says.
Peroxidized low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is present in rabbit and human atherosclerotic plaques
