Chronic administration of methamphetamine promotes atherosclerosis formation in ApoE-/- knockout mice fed normal diet.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Chronic methamphetamine (METH) abuse could induce neurotoxicity due to reactive oxygen species generation and sympathetic activation. Both factors are associated with atherosclerosis, so we tested the hypothesis that chronic METH administration might also promote atherosclerosis formation in Apo E-/- knockout mice fed normal diet.
