Inflammation and immunity activation play a key role in atherosclerosis (ATS) onset and progression. Aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between phenotype of circulating monocytes and coronary artery disease (CAD) development in a histologically well-characterized swine model of ATS.Blood samples were obtained from 6 animals at baseline and after 16 weeks high fat cholesterolenriched diet.
