    • Allergic lung inflammation promotes atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein E-deficient mice 

      Liu, Cong-Lin; Wang, Yi; Liao, Mengyang; Santos, Marcela Malheiro; Fernandes, Cleverson; Sukhova, Galina K.; Zhang, Jin-Ying; Cheng, Xiang; Yang, Chongzhe; Huang, Xiaozhu; Levy, Bruce David; Libby, Peter; Wu, Gongxiong; Shi, Guo-Ping (Elsevier BV, 2016)
      Inflammation drives asthma and atherosclerosis. Clinical studies suggest that asthmatic patients have a high risk of atherosclerosis. Yet this hypothesis remains uncertain, given that Th2 imbalance causes asthma whereas ...
    • Asthma Associates With Human Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and RuptureSignificance 

      Liu, Cong-Lin; Wemmelund, Holger; Wang, Yi; Liao, Mengyang; Lindholt, Jes S.; Johnsen, Søren P.; Vestergaard, Henrik; Fernandes, Cleverson; Sukhova, Galina K.; Cheng, Xiang; Zhang, Jin-Ying; Yang, Chongzhe; Huang, Xiaozhu; Daugherty, Alan; Levy, Bruce David; Libby, Peter; Shi, Guo-Ping (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2016)
      Objective—Both asthma and abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) involve inflammation. It remains unknown whether these diseases interact. Approach and Results—Databases analyzed included Danish National Registry of Patients, ...
    • Interleukin 18 function in atherosclerosis is mediated by the interleukin 18 receptor and the Na-Cl co-transporter 

      Wang, Jing; Sun, Chongxiu; Gerdes, Norbert; Liu, Conglin; Liao, Mengyang; Liu, Jianping; Shi, Michael A; He, Aina; Zhou, Yi; Sukhova, Galina K.; Chen, Huimei; Cheng, Xian; Kuzuya, Masafumi; Murohara, Toyoaki; Zhang, Jie; Cheng, Xiang; Jiang, Mengmeng; Shull, Gary E; Rogers, Shaunessy; Yang, Chao-Ling; Ke, Qiang; Jelen, Sabina; Bindels, René; Ellison, David H; Jarolim, Petr; Libby, Peter; Shi, Guo-Ping (Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
      Interleukin-18 (IL18) participates in atherogenesis through several putative mechanisms1, 2. Interruption of IL18 action reduces atherosclerosis in mice3, 4. Here, we show that absence of the IL18 receptor (IL18r) does not ...
