Inhibition of Atherogenesis In Vivo and In Vitro

Conference paper


Prevention of stenosing or occluding thickening in the walls of arteries supplying blood to the brain has become important to experimental research with an increasing number of patients surviving a transient ischemic attack (TIA) or a stroke caused by occlusion or stenosis in these arteries. In the following report some experimental efforts in this direction are presented.
