Dear members of the ESC Working Group on Atherosclerosis and Vascular Biology,
Since the past months, the COVID-19 pandemic has become the primary concern for the medical and research communities. The ESC is offering continuous updates on cardiovascular and thrombotic manifestations and complications of SARS-CoV2 infection on a dedicated homepage /insert link/.
In this newsletter, we highlight some recent key studies relating both to the vascular biology of COVID-19 and other findings of major interest with focus on extracellular vesicles and the Working Group’s recent Position Paper on endothelial dysfunction.
On behalf of the Working Group nucleus,
Chair WG Atherosclerosis and Vascular Biology
