The Distribution of Adhesion Molecules in Normal and Atherosclerotic Aarteries and Aortas

Part of the GWUMC Department of Biochemistry Annual Spring Symposia book series (GWUN)


Atherosclerosis is accompanied by lipid accumulation, cellular proliferation and intimai inflammation. T lymphocytes and macrophages, many of which are activated, are present in the fatty streak, the fibrofatty plaque and the complicated or advanced plaque, and have therefore been implicated in atherogenesis.1–5
