    ..92) and between the 2- and 3-year follow-ups (mean, -0.4 mL, p = 0.68). Endovascular treatment of atherosclerotic thoracic aortic aneurysms may result in a substantial reduction of the aneurysm sac in patients without endoleaks. ..
  2. Scharnagl H, März W. New lipid-lowering agents acting on LDL receptors. Curr Top Med Chem. 2005;5:233-42 pubmed
    ..Although these actions are not primary targets of the compounds discussed here, it is interesting that drugs inducing the LDL-R usually also lower TG and, in the case of HMGRI, increase HDL-C. ..

    ..Though of high theoretical and practical interest, many aspects of the metabolism, function, evolution, and regulation of plasma concentrations of Lp(a) are presently unknown, controversial, or mysterious. ..

    ..In addition to oxidized lipoproteins, oxidized MVs and apoptotic blebs may play an important role in chronic inflammatory diseases, such as atherosclerosis...

    ..This suggests that short alleles, and thus, facilitated upregulation of HO-1, may be a protective anti-inflammatory factor against the development of AAA. ..

    ..High expression levels of Nur77 and its colocalization with PAI-1 in atherosclerotic tissues indicate that the described mechanism for PAI-1 regulation may also be operative in vivo. ..

    ..This remarkable gene dose-dependent association emphasizes the advantage of considering combinations of genetic markers rather that isolated polymorphisms in the analysis of multifactorial vascular disease. ..

J Vasc Surg. 2005;41:808-15 pubmed
    ..Thus, there is no indication that of one of these mutations may be a risk factor for chronic limb ischemia. However, the role of these mutations in acute limb ischemia remains to be clarified. ..
