Cardiovascular Outcomes Following Xenobiotic Pulmonary Exposures
(East Carolina University, 2017-07-06)
Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of mortality in the developed world. Over the past decades, investigations have demonstrated that pulmonary exposure to xenobiotic particulate matter promotes and exacerbates ...
Augmented coronary vascular smooth muscle response to endothelin-1 exacerbates cardiac injury following pulmonary exposure to engineered nanomaterials
(East Carolina University, 2014)
Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) and 60-carbon fullerenes (C60) are important engineered nanoparticles (ENP) used across industry. Exposure to ENP potentially promotes cardiovascular detriments. The hypotheses that ...
Circadian influences on myocardial infarction
Components of circadian rhythm maintenance, or “clock genes,” are endogenous entrainable oscillations of about 24 h that regulate biological processes and are found in the suprachaismatic nucleus (SCN) and many peripheral ...
