The role of chemokines in atherosclerosis: recent evidence from experimental models and population genetics.

Abstract:

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease process. This review discusses the recent genetic evidence from animal models and human populations that highlight the importance of chemokines in atherosclerosis. RECENT FINDINGS: CC-chemokine/CC-chemokine receptors (CCR), including CCR2/ MCP-1 (monocyte chemoattractant protein-1) and CCR5/RANTES (regulated on activation, normal T-cell expressed and secreted), have been shown in animal knockout and transgenic studies to have sign...
