We previously demonstrated in in vivo studies that GLP-1, GIP, and a DPP-4 inhibitor, respectively, prevented the acceleration of atherosclerosis via suppression of foam cell formation regulated by CD36 and ACAT-1 in macrophages isolated from mice [3, 9].
This receptor binds oxidized phospholipids/lipoproteins and long-chain fatty acids, leading to LD formation and, as a consequence, to differentiation of macrophages to foam cells during atherosclerotic processes [25, 26].
Zizyphus jujuba contains a variety of triterpenoids that inhibit foam cell formation in macrophages [27].
Pathologically, lipid-filled macrophages (foam cells) invade the renal parenchyma [2].
examined the regulation of lipids and the anti-inflammatory function exerted by AD and evaluated the underlying molecular mechanisms using ox-LDL-stimulated foam cells derived from rat peritoneal macrophages and showed that AD markedly alleviated lipid deposition in foam cells as it inhibited the ox-LDL-induced expression of MMP-9.
These results demonstrate that [sup.3]H-cholesterol could drain to plasma from macrophage foam cells and was effectively absorbed in the liver, leading to a decline of [sup.3]H-cholesterol in plasma.
Histologic, histochemical and ultrastructural study of livers and lymph nodes with foamy macrophages (foam cells).
HDL also prevents macrophages from turning into foam cells and producing inflammatory molecules.
Repeated ANOVA test was used to determine the effects of darapladib on Ox-LDL, number of foam cells, and PVAT thickness.
(80-82) Drawn by oxidized fats, macrophages from the immune system swarm into the inflamed plaque area, consume the oxidized LDL, release toxic chemicals that cause swelling and inflammation and form foam cells. (14) These foam cells then die, creating debris that fill the inflamed tissue and perpetuate even more inflammation.
Extracellular lipids were also visible in deeper layers in addition to intracellular lipid deposition seen in foam cells present mostly towards the lumen.
Histological analysis showed histiocytic granulomatous infiltration with widespread paracortical necrosis of the lymph node, extensive karyorrhectic debris and scattered fibrin deposits and sheets of foam cells. Special stains for acid fast bacilli (Ziehl-Neelsen) and fungi (Gomori's methanamine silver and periodic acid Schiff with diastase) did not reveal any micro-organisms.
They are characterized by the accumulation of foam cells in the internal elastic membrane, while the endothelial surface is intact.
In the interstitium, numerous foam cells could be observed.
Cholesterol granuloma (CG) is a histopathologically used term which describes numerous cholestrol clefts that are often surrounded with foreign-body giant cells, foam cells and macrophages filled with haemosiderin.
