Association of atherosclerosis with expression of the LILRB1 receptor by human NK and T-cells supports the infectious burden hypothesis.

Arterioscler. Thromb. Vasc. Biol.. 2011 Oct;31(10):2314-21, PMID: 21817101

The contribution of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) to vascular disease may depend on features of the immune response not reflected by the detection of specific antibodies. Persistent HCMV infection in healthy blood donors has been associated with changes in the distribution of NK cell receptors (NKR). The putative relationship among HCMV infection, NKR distribution, subclinical atherosclerosis, and coronary heart disease was assessed.
