  • New report on vascular plaque calcification

    I thought that this relatively new report on vascular plaque calcification was interesting. It discusses the roles of HDL, oxidized lipoproteins and pharmaceuticals (aka drugs) in the calcification process. I particularly noted how the natural calcification process results in micro changes while the addition of a statin will promote much larger macro changes (see diagram below). https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/10.1...AHA.119.311574

    Unfortunately the image isn't displaying here. I will try to copy the image location and that might work (or not). If not, you can see the image near the beginning of the referenced article.
