Key to artery health lies in LYVE-1 macrophage
(National University of Singapore, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine) NUS Medicine researchers have discovered that a population of macrophages associated with blood vessels actively protects our arteries from detrimental changes to their structure and function. They also uncovered the novel mechanism by which these macrophages exert their protective effects. The work has clinical implications for both aging and cardiovascular diseases, in which arterial stiffness plays an important role. This knowledge should help in the development of new or improved treatments for arterial diseases. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
