After A Cardiovascular Injury, Immune Cells In The Bloodstream Prevent The Heart From Healing
They Inhibit The Curative Action Of The Immune Cells Located Inside The Heart
Researchers have found that immune cells can help relieve heart disease or worsen it, depending on their location. They showed that immune cells located inside the heart are activated after an injury, reducing the risk of cardiovascular damage. But if the cells are located in the bloodstream and arrive at her heart, they worsen the disease. This occurs considering that both cell groups are of the same type, which is macrophages that consume cellular debris. They have different functions, depending if they are located inside the heart, or are located in the bloodstream and arrive at the heart after an injury. The cells in the bloodstream prevent the local cells from performing its healing job. Researchers are working on ways to inhibit the effect of immune cells in the bloodstream when they enter the heart. More Information click here.
