Vascular endothelium cells are the main barriers between vessel wall and blood flow; they play an essential role in the progression of atherosclerosis. Various experimental and computational studies have been carried out to identify the pathways and mechanisms by which Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) transfers through the endothelium cells. The most… CONTINUE READING
