Abstract

Fluorescence spectroscopy experiments were focused on circulating monocytes and endothelial cells, two cell types that play a central role in the development and progression of atheromatous lesions. Our aim was to gain new insights into the cellular physiology of atherosclerosis and allow the development of diagnostic tests for the evaluation of atherosclerosis risk.
