Atherosclerosis is a chronic disease involving the build-up of plaque consisting of fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other blood-based substances. Sequentially, the plaque hardens and narrows the arteries to limit the … Continue Reading Molecules alter the gut microbiota to reverse narrowing of arteries in an animal study.
Atherosclerosis is a cardiac-based disease where plaque builds up inside the body’s arteries, the blood vessels responsible for carrying oxygen-rich blood to the heart and other organs of the body. … Continue Reading Nanoparticle eats plaques responsible for heart attacks.
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.
While people who eat a lot of red meat are known to be at higher risk for certain cancers, other carnivores are not, prompting researchers at the University of California … Continue Reading Sugar molecule links red meat consumption and elevated cancer risk in animal model.
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.
Groundbreaking research from UT Southwestern Medical Center shows that cholesterol efflux capacity (cholesterol efflux), which measures HDL cholesterol function, appears to be a superior indicator of cardiovascular risk and a … Continue Reading New superior measurement technique of HDL cholesterol function provides cardiovascular risk.
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.
