    Foam cells are fat-laden macrophages seen in atherosclerosis.[1][2] They are an indication of plaque build-up, or atherosclerosis, which is commonly associated with increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
    New research suggests that cholesterol-filled macrophage foam cells associated with atherosclerosis are linked with unexpected suppression of inflammatory genes.
