Effects of maternal high-fat diet and statin treatment on bone marrow endothelial progenitor cells and cardiovascular risk factors in female mice offspring fed a similar diet.


OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to prove that one possible statin-related protective mechanism in dams and offspring fed a high-fat diet (HFD) is the reduction in cardiovascular risk and impairment of the vasculogenic element of endothelial regeneration. METHODS To explore this, virgin C57 BL/6 mice (n = 8/group) were fed an HFD (fat: 45% kcal) or… (More)
