Background: Endothelial dysfunction is thought to be a key event in the development of atherosclerosis. Demonstration of increased endoglin expression in atherosclerotic plaques suggested participation of endoglin in atherogenesis. Endoglin expression was also related to nitric oxide (NO) production in endothelium.Objective and hypotheses: Aim of the study was to evaluate the subclinical atherosclerosis in adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM)...
