Abstract


Currently diseases of cardiovascular system rank the leading place in the structure of mortality of the population in industrialized countries. The basis of this nosology is atherosclerotic vascular lesions. Active search for the etiological factors, initiating the development of atherosclerosis, leads to new hypotheses. However, today any of declared is not aprioristic. Chronic inflammation supported by persistency of Chlamidia pneumoniae, Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Cytomegalovirus, Herpes simplex types 1 and 2 promotes activation of the endothelium, leading to its metabolic parameter changes that influence the lipid metabolism, and thus participates in the development of atherosclerotic lesions.
