PhD - Pharmacology

Osmania University, Hyderabad

In vitro and in vivo studies established the proof of mechanism, that the armoury of polyphenols, potentially abrogates CD36 signalling mediated pathogenic foam cell formation and promote their emigration from the intima which resulted in atheroinflammatory lesion regression.
