  • diseases
  • Diseases associated with cerebral atherosclerosis include: Hypertensive arteriopathy This pathological process involves the thickening and damage of arteriole walls. (wikipedia.org)
  • cholesterol
  • It is thought that atherosclerosis is caused by a response to damage to the endothelium from high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and cigarette smoking . (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Current therapies for atherosclerosis include the use of statins, which help to regulate cholesterol levels. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • The major culprit of atherosclerosis is thought (I don't know if they indeed found LDL in atheromas) to be type B LDL (the smaller more dense one as opposed to type A LDL) because it's always present, small enough, and by its job, travels from the liver to the tissues (to deliver cholesterol) so at one time it must try to pass the arterial wall to reach the target tissue.

  • I'm trying to understand the correlation of diet, cholesterol, and fat with coronary heart disease (my father got an angina once) and apparently it boils down to atherosclerosis. (exrx.net)
  • Aortic plaques are a manifestation of the general process of atherosclerosis in which there is a progressive accumulation of cholesterol and other lipids in the intimal-medial layer of the aorta with secondary inflammation, repetitive fibrous tissue deposition, and eventually luminal surface erosions and appearance of often mobile thrombi protruding into the lumen of the aorta. (springer.com)
  • HDL particles are sometimes referred to as "good cholesterol" because they can transport fat molecules out of artery walls, reduce macrophage accumulation, and thus help prevent or even regress atherosclerosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • gene
  • QIAGEN provides a broad range of assay technologies for atherosclerosis research that enables analysis of gene expression and regulation, epigenetic modification, genotyping, and signal transduction pathway activation. (qiagen.com)
  • childhood
  • Atherosclerosis is a slow, progressive disease that may start in childhood. (heart.org)
  • Typically, atherosclerosis begins in childhood, as a thin layer of white-yellowish streaks with the inner layers of the artery walls (an accumulation of white blood cells, mostly monocytes/macrophages) and progresses from there. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • Dr. Neel A. Mansukhani - an integrated vascular surgery fellow at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, IL - led a study in which synthetically created nanofibers were used in a mouse model of atherosclerosis. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • The ARIC Study was designed to investigate the etiology and clinical outcomes of atherosclerosis. (wikipedia.org)
