ies have examined the potential role of oxidative stress in atherogenesis. According to the theory of oxidative stress, atherosclerosis is the result of the oxidative modification of low density lipoproteins (LDL) in the arterial wall by reactive oxygen species (ROS). Evidence suggests that common risk factors for atherosclerosis increase the risk of the production of free ROS, not only from the endothelial cells, but also from the smooth muscle cells and the adventitial cells.
