Title: Pathogenesis of vascular calcification


The population of our planet is aging. In older people, with age, the mechanism of the "calcium paradox" develops - the bones become brittle from the loss of calcium, and the vessels become rigid, because calcium accumulates excessively in them. Consideration of the causes of pathological calcification is one of the important issues in gerontology. The answer to it will allow preventing the development of one of the disabling syndromes of old age - "fragility" .... We are studying the possible causes of this phenomenon and trying to offer prevention methods.
