Atherosclerosis and Vascular Inflammation

AVI reviews applications addressing the pathobiology of the blood vessels, including inflammation of the vascular system, atherosclerosis and aortic aneurysms. There is an emphasis on endothelial and smooth muscle cell biology, macrophage biology, immune cells, and metabolic disorders. The effects of major risk factors such as diabetes, liver disease, aging, and smoking on the vasculature are considered. Most studies use animal systems and cell cultures, integrated with human subject approaches. Applications need not include an atherosclerosis model.
