The fluidlike material did not contain any refractile or crystalline material and showed only scattered foam cells
with no accompanying inflammatory infiltrate.
Perhaps microbes enhance the harmful effects of traditional causes; for example, foam cells
in dyslipedemia-induced lesions might respond to bacterial inflammatory products.
This might be due to the coalescing of the foam cells
due to constraint in free expansion as seen from Table 1.
The composition of foam cells
relative to fibrous stroma varies in case to case.
The interpretation is that their expression might affect the migratory behavior of foam cells
, as well as the adhesive interaction between these cells and the extracellular matrix, possibly explaining the retention of foam cells
in atherosclerotic plaques.
For foam cells
to expand, they must have a pressure greater than the surroundings.
Supplemented mice also developed atherosclerotic lesions 44% smaller than unsupplemented controls, an effect attributed to reduction in the number of inflammatory foam cells
represent the very beginnings of the fatty streaks that can arise in blood vessels as early as adolescence and can lead to full-fledged atherosclerotic plaque later in life (SN: 1/20/90, p.
However, when the RH was set at or above 85%, noticeable shrinkage occurred with visual collapse of the foam cells
This promotes atherosclerosis through inflammatory and immunologic mechanisms that lead to the formation of macrophage foam cells
When tested at lower mean temperatures (more representative of winter conditions), Enovate 3000 foams reportedly outperformed all others, particularly those blown with hydrocarbons because pentane condenses in the cold foam cells
, resulting in an abrupt drop in insulation performance.
Congregating along arterial walls, these foam cells
constitute the beginnings of an atherosclerotic plaque.
The foam cell
walls were thick and foam cells
did not contact one another.
At ambient temperatures around 72 F or below, pentane can condense in the foam cells
, resulting in loss of foam insulation properties and dimensional stability.
