Titel:
C-type Natriuretic Peptide and its Receptors in Atherosclerotic Plaques of the Carotid Artery of Clinically Asymptomatic Patients. 
Abstract:
C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) has anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative and anti-migratory properties. No data exist on the presence of CNP in human atherosclerotic plaques of the carotid artery. Therefore, this study aimed to analyse qualitatively the distribution pattern and characteristics of CNP and its receptors in both, early and advanced human carotid plaques, as well as in stable and unstable lesions. In addition, the aim of this study was to evaluate CNP and its receptors as possible...    »
