Jay MehtaAsher Kimchi, M.D., Founder and Chairman of the International Academy of Cardiology, today announced the selection of Jay Mehta, M.D., PhD., Director, Molecular Cardiology, Professor of Internal Medicine and Physiology and Biophysics and Stebbins Chair in Cardiology, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, to deliver the fifth H.J.C. Swan Memorial Lecture at the Opening Ceremony of the International Academy of Cardiology, 16th World Congress on Heart Disease, Annual Scientific Sessions 2011 to be held in Vancouver, BC, Canada, from Saturday, July 23 through Tuesday, July 26, 2011.
Dr. Mehta will present on the topic of “Angiogenesis in Atherosclerosis; Mechanisms and Therapeutic Targets”. Angiogenesis or generation of new blood vessels has been known to be the basis of development of blood vessels in fetal life. Recently, angiogenesis has been shown to be a fundamental basis of growth and spread of certain tumors. Angiogenesis has also been identified in the media and adventitia of atherosclerotic blood vessels leading to the concept that atherosclerosis is “cancer of the blood vessels”. Work in his laboratory has suggested a potent role of reactive oxygen species released in response to the activation of angiotensin II and oxidized LDL receptor LOX-1 in angiogenesis.
