Micro-RNAs can hold back the increase of atherosclerosis

LMU checkup researchers have exposed that the management of exact micro-RNAs can hold back the growth of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is a grave condition in that fatty deposits increase in the inner coating of the main arteries, infuriating chronic provocative reactions so as to lead to a progressive obstacle of the vessel. This might ultimately stop blood-flow plus guide to a heart attack otherwise possibility of stroke. LMU's Professor Christian Weber, Director of the Institute for Cardiovascular Prevention at the LMU Medical Center says "Where blood-flow is perturbed and other risk factors are present, such as hyperlipidemia with abnormally high levels of cholesterol, the cells of the endothelium mount a stress reaction, which can result in programmed cell death but also in increased proliferation of endothelial cells," . The importance of this improved cell turnover for the rejuvenation in development of endothelium and atherosclerosis, however it remains unclear.
