• mice
  • Irisin treatment (0.5 μg/g body weight/day) significantly reduced the severity of aortic atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E-deficient mice fed on a high-cholesterol diet and suppressed carotid neointima formation in a carotid partial ligation model. (plos.org)
  • cells
  • Bone marrow-derived progenitor cells (BMPCs) as well as perivascular progenitor cells have been implicated to differentiate into vascular cells during neointima formation. (ahajournals.org)
  • Most of the accumulating EGFP+-cells were identified as inflammatory cells (CD45, CD68), and their number in the neointima declined from 110.81±18.98 at 2 weeks to only 5.31±2.21 at 16 weeks after dilation. (ahajournals.org)
