The role of NF-kB and I-kB in intimal proliferation following balloon catheter-induced injury in the rat carotid artery

The aim of our study was to gain insight into the molecular and cellular mechanisms of post-angioplasty restenosis using balloon catheter-induced injury model in the rat carotid artery. SD rats were subjected balloon catheterization at one side carotid artery as study group and another side as control group. Six rats were killed on the 6 h, and 3rd, 7th… (More)
