Wenrui Hao, Penn State UniversityWenrui Hao, Penn State UniversityEWG 336Mathematical modeling for vascular diseases <br><br> Atherosclerosis, the leading cause of death in the United States, is a disease in which plaque builds up inside the arteries. Two concentrations of cholesterol in the blood, LDL and HDL, are commonly usedto predict the risk factor for plaque growth. In this talk, I will describe a new mathematical model that predicts the plaque formation by using the combined levels of LDL and HDL. The model is given by a system of partial differential equations within the plaque region with a free boundary. This model is used to explore some drugs of regression of plaque in mice, and suggest that such drugs may also slow plaque growth in humans. Some computational and mathematical questions inspired by this model will also be discussed. I will also mention briefly some related projects, abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and red blood cell aggregation. 5/2/2017 6:00:00 PM5/2/2017 7:00:00 PMFalse
