Stress oxidative and progression of atherosclerosis

Banafsheh Yalameha


Core tip: Oxidative stress is involved in the pathogenesis of various cardiovascular diseases including atherosclerosis as a fibroproliferative process. Oxidation of LDL particles by active oxygen species leads to the formation of oxLDL in the intima layer and progression of atherosclerosis. Therefore, oxidative stress
has been considered as one of the main risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
