The endothelium plays an important role in cardiovascular regulation, from blood flow, to platelet aggregation, immune cell infiltration and demargination. A dysfunctional end...
Ross, M., Ingram, L., Taylor, G., Malone, E., Simpson, R. J., West, D., & Florida-James, G. (2018). Older men display elevated levels of senescence-associated exercise-responsive CD28null angiogenic T cells compared with younger men. Physiological Reports, 6(12), 1-11. https://doi.org/10.14814/phy2.13697
Aging is associated with elevated cardiovascular disease risk. As a result of aging, endothelial dysfunction develops, partly due to a reduction in vascular regenerative abili...
