Herpes simplex virus as a determinant risk factor for coronary artery atherosclerosis and myocardial infarction



Herpes simplex virus as a determinant risk factor for coronary artery atherosclerosis and myocardial infarction



In Vivo 19(2): 351-357



Background: Viruses have been detected in atherosclerotic and non-atherosclerotic vascular tissues and may be involved in the mechanisms of atherogenesis. In the present study, we investigated the role of herpes simplex virus (HSV) in the early and late stages of coronary artery atherosclerosis.
