Biochemistry of Atherosclerosis

Sukhinder Kaur Cheema

Biochemistry of Atherosclerosis examines atherosclerosis in great detail, focusing on the risk of atherosclerosis, and the biochemical pathways involved. It provides a breadth of knowledge as well as new insights into a variety of topics relating to atherosclerosis from leading scientists around the world who are at the forefront of atherosclerosis research. Biochemistry of Atherosclerosis is essential reading for biomedical and clinical researchers.

Key topics:

    • Hyperlipidaemia and Atherosclerosis
    • Diabetes Induced Atherosclerosis
    • Hypertension Induced Atherosclerosis
    • Homocysteine Metabolism and Atherosclerosis
    • Role of the Immune System in Atherosclerosis
    • Role of Infectious Agents in Atherogenesis
    • Dietary Management of Aherosclerosis

About the Editor:

Sukhinder Kaur Cheema is currently Associate Professor of Biochemistry and a CIHR (Canadian Institutes of Health Research) New Investigator at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. An expert in nutritional biochemistry, lipid metabolism and cardiovascular disease, she is cross appointed in Faculty of Medicine at the Memorial University of Newfoundland.

About the authors

Dr. Sukhinder K. Cheema is Associate Professor of Biochemistry, Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada. She has worked as a Research Scientist with the Nova-Husky Research Corporation in Alberta, Canada. She is currently researching the molecular mechanisms of cholesterol ester transfer protein regulation by dietary fats and hormones. She also researches the regulation of genes involved in cholesterol metabolism by hormone factors, the molecular basis of diabetes-accelerated atherosclerosis, and the mechanisms of lipid abnormalities caused by protease inhibitors.
