Halofuginone stimulates adaptive remodeling and preserves re-endothelialization in balloon-injured rat carotid arteries.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Three major processes, constrictive vessel remodeling, intimal hyperplasia (IH), and retarded re-endothelialization, contribute to restenosis after vascular reconstructions. Clinically used drugs inhibit IH but delay re-endothelialization and also cause constrictive remodeling. Here we have examined halofuginone, an herbal derivative, for its… (More)
