This volume provides detailed, up-to-date methods used in research on Atherosclerosis. Chapters guide readers through an overview of the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and model systems together with in vitro, ex vivo, in vivo and emerging methods in atherosclerosis research. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and cutting-edge, Atherosclerosis: Methods and Protocols serves as an invaluable resource for those engaging in research on atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease, as well as for researchers who are new to the field and students at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
