Ongoing research in the development and application of primarily noninvasive imaging techniques to measure endothelial function and dysfunction continues in the pursuit of tests for subclinical disease states, targeting therapeutic strategies and prognosis. Cardiovascular disease incurs a major burden to the public health and health care system. In the past several decades, advances in.
Endothelial Dysfunction is the most common form of vascular abnormality. Endothelial cells form the inner lining of blood vessels. Each artery has three layers: the endothelial layer (inner most), the medial layer, and the adventitial layer (outer most). The endothelial layer, being the inner most layer, has been referred to as the “brain” of the arteries and is considered the most.
Endothelial dysfunction is a patho-logical state of the inner lining of the blood vessels which is characterised by a reduction in vasodilation in response to endothelial stimuli and considered an early key marker of cardiovascular disease.2 Impaired synthesis and release of nitric oxide (NO) by the endothe- lium is considered one of the important mechanisms associated with endothelial.
Rhodiola crenulata root extract (RCE), a traditional Chinese medicine, has been shown to regulate glucose and lipid metabolism via the AMPK pathway in high glucose (HG) conditions. However, the effect of RCE on HG-induced endothelial dysfunction remains unclear. The present study was designed to examine the effects and mechanisms of RCE against hyperglycemic insult in endothelial cells.
The aim of this chapter is to explain endothelial dysfunction and the circulating molecules of endothelial cells as they become potential targets of therapeutic approach for hypertension. This chapter reviews the roles of endothelial dysfunction in hypertension by addressing (1) the nature of endothelial function, (2) mechanisms of endothelial dysfunction and its relationship with the diseases.
Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is recognized as a failure of endothelial repair mechanisms. It is also an early preclinical marker of atherosclerosis and is commonly found in RA patients. RA is now established as an independent cardiovascular risk factor, while mechanistic determinants of ED in RA are still poorly understood. An expanding body of study has shown that EC at a site of RA is both.
Endothelial Dysfunction: Clinical Implications in Cardiovascular Disease and Therapeutic Approaches Atherosclerosis is a chronic progressive vascular disease. It starts early in life, has a long asymptomatic phase, and a progression accelerated by various cardiovascular risk factors. The endothelium is an active inner layer of the blood vessel. It generates many factors that regulate vascular.
