OBJECTIVE Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory process and is characterised by the presence of T-lymphocytes in the lesions. To study the role of Chlamydophila pneumoniae (C. pneumoniae) in this process and the effect of infection on T-cell influx, we infected Apo E3-Leiden mice with C. pneumoniae and investigated the effect on lesion development and T-cell influx in atherosclerotic lesions at different time points post infection (pi). METHODS Nine week old mice, fed an atherogenic diet, were… CONTINUE READING
