According to a study from the United States, "Oxidized phospholipids are thought to promote atherogenesis by stimulating endothelial cells (ECs) to produce inflammatory cytokines, such as IL-8. In studies with mouse models, we previously demonstrated that genetic variation in inflammatory responses of endothelial cells to oxidized lipids contributes importantly to atherosclerosis susceptibility."
P.S. Gargalovic and colleagues at University of California Los Angeles wrote, "We now show that similar variations occur in cultured aortic...
