To examine the possible role of HCMV in the etiology of atherosclerosis, we searched for the presence of HCMV DNA in arterial vascular tissues by in situ hybridization. Biotin labelled HCMV DNA probe was used on specimens of arterial wall taken from patients with clinically significant atherosclerosis. Evidence for the presence of HCMV DNA was obtained in 13 specimens out of 32 atherosclerosis specimens. In contrast, only 1 specimen was positive in the control group (Total 15 specimens of… CONTINUE READING
