Recent evidence suggests that mineral, hormonal, and metabolic imbalances that promote phenotype change in vascular cells as well as deficiencies in specific mineralization inhibitory pathways may be important contributory factors for vascular calcification in these patients. This article reviews current mechanisms proposed for the regulation of vascular… CONTINUE READING
