Item description for Role of Herpesviruses in Atherogenesis (Advances in Vascular Biology Series) by David P Hajjar...
There is a growing body of evidence suggesting that the herpesvirus has a role in many vascular disorders. Each chapter in this book discusses in detail the role that herpesviruses play in the pathophysiological processes related to cholesterol metabolism and intracellular trafficking, cell proliferation, matrix production and arterial tissue remodelling, and thrombosis. The contributors highlight a wide range of cellular processes focused on the potential role that herpesviruses may play in the etiology and development of cardiovascular disease, from early childhood to adult stages of life. Acknowledged experts provide the pathological, molecular and biochemical evidence supporting the hypothesis that herpesviruses are involved in atherogenesis, restenosis following coronary angioplasty, accelerated atherosclerosis in recipients of heart transplants, and in the induction of a pro-thrombotic phenotype in vascular cells.
