A Look at Infectious Agents as a Possible Causative Factor in Cardiovascular Disease: Part III

The link between infection and cardiovascular disease has been assessed by measuring the presence of antibodies against the pathogen. There are several mechanisms by which the immune response to a virus can result in immunopathology. Knowledge about molecular mimicry between infectious agents and human tissue could be used in clinical laboratory tests for early detection and prevention of infections-induced cardiovascular disease.
