Monocyte Phenotypes and Physical Activity in Patients with Carotid Atherosclerosis

It has been reported that the levels of intermediate pro-inflammatory monocytes are closely linked to cardiovascular disease and ischemic stroke risk. A total of 29 patients with a carotid stenosis > 50% were recruited. The GPAQ questionnaire, arterial samples of blood were collected to determine monocyte phenotype measured by flow cytometry, and venous blood samples were used to dose antioxidant activity and oxidative damage. In moderately ill patients, there was a significant decrease in the number of classical and intermediate monocytes in moderately circulating patients as compared to non-active and highly active patients. PA may also reduce the risk of ischemic stroke prevention by lowering the incidence of intermediate monocytes involved in lesions u2019 healing, according to our study.
