Proposed mechanisms of event reduction by lipid lowering therapy

Proposed Mechanisms of Event Reduction by Lipid-Lowering Therapy

  • Improved endothelium-dependent vasodilation

  • Stabilization of atherosclerotic lesions

    • especially nonobstructive, vulnerable plaques

  • Reduction in inflammatory stimuli

    • lipoproteins and modified lipoproteins

  • Prevention, slowed progression, or regression of atherosclerotic lesions

Libby P. Circulation. 1995;91:2844-2850.

Atheroma are not merely filled with lipid, but contain cells whose functions critically influence atherogenesis:

Intrinsic Vascular Wall Cells:

  • Endothelium

  • Smooth Muscle Cells

    Inflammatory Cells:

  • Macrophages

  • T Lymphocytes

  • Mast Cells

Vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 vcam 1

Vascular Cell Adhesion Molecule 1(VCAM-1)

  • Binds monocytes and lymphocytes- Cells found in atheroma

  • Expressed by endothelium over nascent fatty streaks

  • Expressed by microvessels of the mature atheroma

An atherogenic diet rapidly induces VCAM-1, a cytokine-regulatable mononuclear leukocyte adhesion molecule, in rabbit aortic endothelium

Monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 mcp 1

Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein 1(MCP-1)

  • A potent mononuclear cell chemoattractant

  • Produced by endothelial and smooth muscle cells

  • Localizes in human and experimental atheroma
