Chronic renal failure (CRF) favors the development of atherosclerosis and excessive calcification of atheromatous lesions. CRF
was induced in apolipoprotein E knockout (apoE /
) mice to study (1) a possible acceleration of aortic atherosclerosis, (2) the
degree and type of vascular calcification, and (3) factors involved in the calcification process. For creating CRF, 8-wk-old
apolipoprotein E gene knockout (apoE /
