Abstract

To identify sites of free radical derived oxidation, cerium NADH-oxidase cytochemical technique was used for the coronary atherosclerotic lesions removed from patients undergoing coronary atherectomy. This demonstrates that monocyte-derived NADH-oxidase which generates the free radical derived oxidants involved in lipid peroxidation is produced in foam cells with both intracellular and extracellular activity is confined to fatty streak.
