Atherosclerosis is a complex phenomenon which leads to sudden death. Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy was used to study the pathogenic components of carotids that produce the atheromatic plaque at the molecular level, as well as the role of free radicals, which are developed during oxidative stress and their effect on plaque generation. The absorption infrared spectra reflected significant changes which were analogous to clinical data of each patient. The spectra contained… CONTINUE READING
