Study finds significant independent association between air pollution and cardiovascular risk

...t the hypothesis, researchers looked for composite atherosclerotic plaque in the thoracic and abdominal aorta and vasomotor tone changes in the mice. They concluded that in a mouse model, long-term exposure to low concentration of PM(2.5) altered vasomotor tone, induced vascular inflammation, and potentiated atheros...

Studies show apo A-I Milano gene transfer and antibody therapy cut atherosclerotic plaque

...tly reduce the extent of already present, advanced atherosclerotic lesions," according to the research team. "Positive immunization with antibodies directed against oxidized LDL isotopes might constitute a future fast-acting therapy for patients at high risk for acute cardiovascular events."...

...arrowing of the artery following surgery to remove atherosclerotic lesions." The number of research fellows awarded by the NHMRC is limited and the Scheme is prestigious and highly competitive, with less than 70 Senior Principal Research Fellows appoint across the nation in 2005.

Anti-cancer drugs may hold promise for premature aging disorder

... first place were the potential links to aging and atherosclerotic disease," said Capell. Indeed, understanding progeria at the molecular level may illuminate the general processes involved in normal human aging. The LMNA gene codes for a protein called lamin A, which constitutes a major component of the scaffold-li...

Blocking a premature aging syndrome with anticancer drugs

... first place were the potential links to aging and atherosclerotic disease," says Capell. Indeed, understanding HGPS at the molecular level may illuminate general processes involved normal human aging. The LMNA mutation implicated in HGPS causes an internal stretch of 50 amino acids within the encoded lamin A prot...

Burnham Institute awarded $13 M for Program of Excellence in Nanotechnology

... "We intend to exploit this new understanding of atherosclerotic plaque," said Dr. Smith. "By focusing on devising nano-devices, which can be described as machines at the molecular level, we will specifically target vulnerable plaque. That cannot be accomplished today. My colleagues and I hope that our work will ...

Excess liver gene protects against high-fat diet

..., high-fat Western diet has abetted an epidemic of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, making it the leading cause of death in industrialized nations," said study senior author Mitchell Lazar, of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. "Yet we know that some people are more susceptible than others to ...

Drug lowers inflammatory markers associated with risk for heart attack

... researchers believe, by promoting inflammation in atherosclerotic plaques and increasing their propensity to rupture. By inhibiting the function of FLAP and thereby down-regulating the activity of the leukotriene pathway, the risk of MI may be decreased. Of several available inhibitors of FLAP, the researchers use...

Gene variants predict bleeding after heart surgery

...he number of vessels being bypassed, the degree of atherosclerotic disease and use of the heart-lung machine to keep blood pumping while surgeons operate on the stopped heart. "However, these risk factors we use now are poorly predictive of which patients are more likely to bleed," Welsby continued. "Also, these fac...

Discovery about Vitamin C explains its metabolic value

...damaged by toxic lipids can increase the chance of atherosclerotic lesions. In continuing research, the OSU team plans to study the role of this newly understood reaction between vitamin C and toxic lipids in atherosclerosis. In clinical studies they plan to examine the blood chemistry of patients who have been diag...

Nuclear imaging offers possibility for early detection of patients with coronary heart disease

Elevated inflammatory enzyme, Lp-PLA2, significantly linked to ischemic stroke

...or "bad," cholesterol (LDL-C) into products within atherosclerotic plaques and produces signals within the plaques that promote inflammation. Several studies have documented the strong association of Lp-PLA2 with coronary heart disease and stroke in the general population, regardless of total cholesterol or othe...

Experimental lupus drug may also work against atherosclerosis

...agent.TSA treatment changed the composition of the atherosclerotic deposit in a way that may lead to plaque stability, so pieces don't break off so easily. The breaking off of plaques, which then can lodge elsewhere in already narrowed arteries, is a key mechanism for heart attacks and strokes. ...
