Researchers have long known that the buildup of plaque in arteries can cause them to narrow and harden, potentially leading to a whole host of health problems, including heart attack, … Continue Reading Researchers identify new contributor to heart disease, new scope of treatment.
In human cells, shortened telomeres, the protective caps at the ends of chromosomes, are both a sign of aging and contribute to it. The effects of chronic diseases such as … Continue Reading Researchers use dietary supplement in atherosclerotic mice to lengthen telomeres.
A study to examine recessively inherited genome-wide DNA sequences has for the first time discovered a potential link with Britain’s biggest killer, Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). The research led by … Continue Reading Researchers identify the link between inherited DNA sequences and heart disease.
Adding two non-invasive imaging tests to traditional cardiovascular disease risk factor assessment more precisely predicts a healthy patient’s future risk of heart attack, stroke, or premature death, according to a … Continue Reading New non-invasive bioimaging can detect coronary artery disease long before it strikes.
Nanometer-sized drones that deliver a special type of healing molecule to fat deposits in arteries could become a new way to prevent heart attacks caused by atherosclerosis, if an animal … Continue Reading Nanobot ‘drones’ successfully target atherosclerosis in animal model.
Atherosclerosis is largely caused by oxidised blood fats. The research findings presented in a new study by researchers from the Lund University show that A1M stops the oxidation of blood fats … Continue Reading Researchers identify ‘cleaner’ protein which protects against atherosclerosis in P-O-C.
Obesity-linked diabetes is a growing public health problem and contributes to cardiovascular disease, the most prevalent cause of death in the U.S. High plasma concentrations fatty acids derived from food … Continue Reading Researchers find new links between obesity and cardiovascular disease.
In a study of nearly 2,000 adults, researchers found that a buildup of plaque in the body’s major arteries was associated with mild cognitive impairment. Results of the study conducted … Continue Reading Asymptomatic atherosclerosis linked to cognitive impairment in first large-scale study.
In an analysis that included approximately 35,000 participants, researchers from Lund University linked the genetic predisposition to elevated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) to aortic valve calcium and narrowing of the … Continue Reading Elevated LDL-C gene linked to narrowing of the aortic valve.
Scientists from the University of Leeds have discovered a gene that plays a vital role in blood vessel formation, research which adds to the medical community’s knowledge of how early … Continue Reading Scientists unlock key to blood vessel formation.
