In 1999 The Fleming Theory of Inflammation and Vascular Disease with its Inflammation and Blood Clotting Components caused by Multiple Factors was published in The Textbook of Angiology. John C. Chang Editor, Springer-Verlag New York, NY. 1999,
Chapter 64. Pathogenesis of Vascular Disease. pp. 787-798. doi:10.1007/978-1-4612-1190-7_64,
along with other chapters I wrote on "Heart Failure", "Nuclear Imaging", "Hyperlipidemias", and the use of "Phosphodiesterase Inhibitors".
The figure explaining The Inflammation and Vascular/Heart Disease Theory is reproduced below showing among other things the role that infections play in this InflammoThrombotic Response (ITR) occurring frequently today and known as COVID-19.
