in blood flow, called peripheral arterial tone (PAT).
Research released at this AHA conference validates this basic
-- Framingham Heart Study uses PAT Technology to find links
between endothelial dysfunction and cardiovascular risk
-- Swedish scientists note that anger, depression and anxiety
in children are connected to measurable endothelial
changes that precedes heart disease
-- An international team of scientists discovers that
endothelial damage is widespread in malaria, suggesting
new avenues for treatment
