Abstract

Since the time of the first apoptotic death descriptions a lot of new information concerning the importance of this process has been discovered. There are still more and more data about clinical implications of this knowledge in physiological conditions and pathological states. The technical progress concerning molecular biology allows to detect very early stages of this process - on the other hand, the knowledge concerning stimuli factors and regulatory mechanisms of PCD still increases. Special interest is focused on neoplasmatic and vascular diseases and also on research concerning apoptotic pathways and their modulatory mechanisms. In the paper, the review of the literature describing the role of apoptosis in the vascular diseases was presented.
