Abstract

The important role of infection in development of atherosclerosis in the recent experimental and clinical studies was showed. It was emphasized the role of Toll-like receptors, which promote the participation of microbes, determining their presence in the vascular wall with subsequent release of proinflammatory cytokines, stimulating the formation of atherosclerotic plaques. On important role of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in the processes of atherogenesis was indicated .
