Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is an opportunistic pathogen that has been implicated in the pathogenesis of vascular diseases. HCMV infection of endothelial cells may lead to vascular damage in vitro, and acute-phase HCMV infection has been associated with thrombosis. We hypothesized that viral infection of endothelial cells activates coagulation cascades and contributes to thrombus formation and acute vascular catastrophes in patients with atherosclerotic disease. To assess the effects of HCMV… CONTINUE READING
