Process that turns 'good cholesterol' bad discovered   Jan 27, 11:05 am
Washington, Jan. 27 (ANI): A team of researchers has discovered a process by which high-density lipoprotein (HDL) - known as 'good cholesterol' - becomes dysfunctional, loses its cardio-protective properties, and instead turns to 'bad cholesterol', thus promoting inflammation and atherosclerosis, or the clogging and hardening of the arteries.

Diabetes increases risk of thickening of arteries  Jul 11, 5:44 pm
Washington, July 11 (ANI): For people with diabetes, the increased risk of cardiovascular disease is an unfortunate reality, which includes atherosclerosis, a condition where the walls of the artery thicken due to accumulating fatty deposits, which can lead to heart attack and stroke.
New way to treat chronic inflammation in diseases identified   Jul 2, 12:30 pm
Washington, July 02 (ANI): Researchers have discovered a new mechanism to block inflammation in Alzheimer's, Atherosclerosis and Type-2 Diabetes, without crippling the immune system.
Inhalation of auto emissions turns HDL cholesterol from 'good' to 'bad'  May 16, 10:31 am
Washington, May 16 (ANI): Breathing motor vehicle emissions triggers a change in high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, altering its cardiovascular protective qualities so that it actually contributes to clogged arteries, researchers have found in a study done in mice.
Air pollution may speed hardening of arteries and cause heart disease  Apr 24, 2:37 pm
Washington, April 24 (ANI): Long term exposure to air pollution may cause heart attacks and strokes by speeding up atherosclerosis, or "hardening of the arteries", according to a study by U.S. researchers.

Washington, April 24 (ANI): Regularly consuming multiple drinks in a short window of time can cause immediate changes in circulation that increase an otherwise healthy young adult's risk of developing cardiovascular disease later in life, a new research has found.
Long-term exposure to traffic pollution ups heart disease risk   Apr 19, 11:02 am
Washington, April 19 (ANI): A new study has found that long-term exposure to fine particle matter (PM) air pollution in part derived from traffic pollution is also associated with atherosclerosis independent of traffic noise.
How 'bad cholesterol' ups risk of Alzheimer's and heart disease  Apr 16, 10:30 am
Washington, April 16 (ANI): High levels of blood cholesterol increase the risk of both Alzheimer's disease and heart disease, but it has been unclear exactly how cholesterol damages the brain to promote Alzheimer's disease and blood vessels to promote atherosclerosis.

Culprit behind hardening of arteries identified  Mar 23, 4:31 pm
Washington, Mar 23 (ANI): A team of researchers have now identified a microRNA that plays a prominent role in Atherosclerosis - an inflammatory reaction which is the root of the most common forms of cardiovascular disease - and offers a promising target for new therapies.
