On histopathological examination, sheets of lipid laden foam cells with variable background of other cells and fibrosis was noted (fig.
Histopathologically, early atherosclerotic changes were observed in HC control group represented by endothelial damage and thickened foam cells while propolis or TQ provided protection against the HC-induced damage.
It serves as seed sites for formation of the polyurethane foam cells.
This accumulation gives them a foamy appearance, hence the name foam cells.
Normally, mice on low-fat diets do not accumulate the fat-filled foam cells along vessel walls that lead to clogged arteries.
Possible sources for weight loss are (1) air's buoyant force applied by the increasing volume of the foam, (2) rupture of foam cells (bubbles) with collapse of the cell or replacement of the vapors by new vapors, and (3) evaporation/escape of MF, water, or carbon dioxide along the upper surface of the foam.
The foam cells invade blood vessel walls, triggering inflammatory responses and the formation of early atherosclerotic plaque.
Finding out how much of the blowing agent is in the polymer matrix and how much remains in the foam cells is critical to the optimization of a formulation, and a crucial determinant of the foam's properties," explains Mary Bogdan, principle scientist in the Enovate Technical Service and Application group at Honeywell's research laboratory in Buffalo, N.
