Effects of Ppar Γ Ligands on Atherosclerosis and Cardiovascular Disease

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) are ligand-activated nuclear receptors regulating the expression of genes that control lipid and glucose homeostasis, modulating thus the major metabolic disorders predisposing to atherosclerosis and subsequent cardiovascular diseases [1]. Moreover, PPARs exert additional anti-inflammatory and lipid… (More)
