  • Induction of immune tolerance is one of the recent novel immunomodulatory strategies to directly intervene the autoimmune-driven atherosclerosis. Aspirin is a prototypic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, which is now being regarded as a life-saver in variety of atherosclerotic cardiovascular complications. Considerable amount of data emerged during last few years clearly suggests that aspirin can cause immunomodulation by several mechanisms, particularly, its ability to induce tolerogenic… CONTINUE READING
