Impaired Fibrous Repair: A Possible Contributor to Atherosclerotic Plaque Vulnerability in Patients With Type II Diabetes.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Diabetes mellitus (DM) type II is increasing rapidly worldwide. Patients with DM II have a greater atherosclerotic burden and higher risk of developing cardiovascular complications. Inflammation has been proposed as the main cause for the high risk of atherosclerotic disease in DM II. In this study, we compared markers of inflammation and fibrous repair in plaques from subjects with and without DM II.
