Suppressive Effects of Irbesartan on Inflammation and Apoptosis in Atherosclerotic Plaques of apoE−/− Mice: Molecular Imaging with 14C-FDG and 99mTc-Annexin A5

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To investigate the effects of irbesartan on inflammation and apoptosis in atherosclerotic plaques by histochemical examination and molecular imaging using (14)C-FDG and (99m)Tc-annexin A5. BACKGROUND Irbesartan has a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) activation property in addition to its ability to block the AT1 receptor… (More)
