Drug Inhibition of Experimental Carotid Atherogenesis

  • Eberhard L. Betz


It is well known that a number of risk factors exists for atherogenesis and that reduction of these factors (cholesterol, smoking, hypertension, etc.) is recommended to prevent progression of this disease. Drugs that reduce hyperlipidemia or hypertension play a supporting role in the treatment of some forms of atherosclerosis. At the vessel wall level other factors are additionally involved (Table 5.1).
