PlaqueTec presents ePoster at 14th Annual ECS Conference

What is the relationship between protein concentration at site of coronary atheroma and fibrous cap thickness?


Measuring protein concentration in the vicinity of atherosclerotic plaques could inform a more detailed understanding of the underlying pathways leading to thin-cap fibroatheromas (TCFA) formation and how it varies between individuals. However, the reliable detection and quantification of such local changes is challenging in vivo.


Presented at the 14th Annual Emirates Cardiac Society Conference, 24–26 November, Dubai, our ePoster explored the relationship between protein concentration, collected at the site of atheroma using local coronary artery blood sampling, and fibrous cap thickness.
