Cell polarization could be clue to development of atherosclerosis

05/17/2013 | MolecularImaging.net

Researchers have found hints about the pathology of atherosclerosis through 18F-FDG-PET imaging of the inflammation associated with plaques that accompany the disease, according to findings reported in The Journal of Nuclear Medicine. The study discovered a polarization between macrophage M1 and M2 seems to be associated with the process of the disease. That means an FDG-PET imaging test could be used to detect pro-inflammatory M1 macrophages.
