The macrophage: the intersection between HIV infection and atherosclerosis

Journal of Leukocyte Biology

Dec 3, 2009

Suzanne M CroweMichael Bukrinsky

Abstract

HIV-infected individuals are at increased risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) with underlying mechanisms including chronic immune activation and inflammation secondary to HIV-induced microbial translocation and low-grade endotoxemia; direct effects of HIV and viral proteins on macroph...read more

AIDS Malignancies

HIV infection increases the risk of non-communicable diseases common in the aged, including cardiovascular disease, neurocognitive decline, non-aids malignancies, osteoporosis, and frailty. Discover the latest research in AIDS malignancies.

Microbes: Cholesterol & Bile Acid (ASM)

The intestinal microbiome is responsible for metabolism of bile acids and generation of the bile acid pool. Discover the latest research on Microbes: Cholesterol & Bile Acid.

Atherosclerosis Disease Progression

Atherosclerosis is the buildup of plaque on artery walls, causing stenosis which can eventually lead to clinically apparent cardiovascular disease. Find the latest research on atherosclerosis disease progression here.

Macrophage Activation

Macrophages are phagocytic cells that are found in virtually all tissues. Upon activation by external stimuli, they can take on broadly inflammatory or anti-inflammatory phenotypes and aid in clearing infection or damaged cells and in tissue repair. Find the latest research on macrophage activation here.

Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary artery disease is extremely prevalent in western societies and is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality industrialized countries. Known risk factors include hypertension, smoking and dyslipidemia. Discover the latest research on coronary artery disease here.

Microbes: Cholesterol & Bile Acid

The intestinal microbiome is responsible for metabolism of bile acids and generation of the bile acid pool. Discover the latest research on Microbes: Cholesterol & Bile Acid.

Lipid & Membrane Metabolism

Lipid metabolism refers to the synthesis and degradation of lipids in cells and is a complex process essential for fat storage and construction of cellular membranes. Discover the latest research on lipid and membrane metabolism here.

Chromosomal Translocation

Chromosomal Translocation occur when regions on two chromosomes breaks and swaps places or when a region is attached to another chromosome. Discover the latest research on Chromosomal Translocation here.

Fc Receptors

Fc receptors (fcrs) mediate a plethora of biological functions as diverse as antigen presentation, phagocytosis, cytotoxicity, induction of inflammatory cascades and modulation of immune responses. Discover the latest research on Fc Receptors here.

Coronary Artery Aneurysm

Coronary artery aneurysms are the dilation of the coronary arteries that supply the heart tissue with blood and nutrients. The dilation exceeds 1.5 times the normal artery size. Complications can occur if these aneurysms rupture. Here is the latest research on coronary artery aneurysms.
