Abstract

It is apparent at each level of microscopic examination that connective tissue components of the arterial wall are beautifully organized molecular constructs. Similarly, it is evident that transition from a healthy, elastic arterial wall to a diseased, sclerotic arterial wall involves changes in those molecular constructs — changes which can be described in terms of the forces that bind atoms, ions, and molecules together. Our interest centers on the molecular aspects of this transition, i.e., on the molecular pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.
