Cardiovascular disease is characterized by structural and functional changes of blood vessel’s wall that lead to reduced blood flow and eventually occlusion. The integrity of the vascular wall is maintained by homeostatic mechanisms controlled by the endothelium. Stress caused by age, oxidants, mechanical injury, and inflammation can result in endothelial… CONTINUE READING
