Thrombotic mechanisms in atherosclerosis: potential impact of soy proteins.

Abstract

Generally injuries that remove or disrupt the endothelial cells lining blood vessels stimulate formation of vascular lesions composed of smooth muscle cells. One of the first events after such endothelial cell disruption is the generation of thrombin at the site of injury. This leads to platelet activation and thrombus formation. Evidence suggests that… (More)
