Platelets not only play a role in the late complications of atherosclerosis, but are also essential in its initiation, interacting with endothelial cells and leukocytes. Platelet adhesion to injured or atherosclerotic vessels is critical for the initiation of atherosclerotic lesion formation in vivo. Increasing evidence has recently highlighted the role of progenitor cells in inflammation, atherogenesis, and atheroprogression. Recruitment of progenitor and dendritic cells to sites of vascular… CONTINUE READING
