Damage to arterial walls contributes to atherosclerosis (thickening of the arteries) though the pivotal factors remain controversial. Hypochlorite/hypochlorous acid is a strong oxidant produced by white blood cells of the immune system. I discovered that hypochlorite causes types of damage potentially relevant to atherosclerosis and that such damage can be found in atherosclerotic lesions.
