How does inflammatory cytokines cause atherosclerosis

Although allograft vasculopathy is not formally an autoimmune disease, nor does it constitute a major cause of cardiovascular disease on a purely numerical basis, its pathogenesis provides an important window on the mechanisms by which immune injury can drive more common vascular pathologic entities. Thus, insights gleaned from vascularized solid organ transplants can shed new mechanistic (and therapeutic) light on: 1) the intimal vascular responses accompanying typical atherosclerosis and other inflammatory vessel diseases (e...
