The physiologic properties of the normal cellular prion protein (PrP(C)) have not been established fully, although recent evidence showed its upregulation in cerebral ischaemia. Using patients, animal models, and in vitro studies we aimed to identify in detail the expression and localization of PrP(C) in ischemic stroke. Patients in acute phase of ischaemic(More)
Rupture-prone unstable arterial plaques develop concomitantly with the appearance of intraplaque hemorrhage and tissue ulceration, in association with deregulation of smooth muscle cell mitogenesis and leakage of newly formed blood vessels. Using microarray technology, we have identified novel protein deregulation associated with unstable carotid plaque(More)
