    - C. pneumoniae is unique among several microbes that have been associated with arterial disease in having been demonstrated with frequency in atherosclerotic lesions but not in normal arterial tissue.
    - The organism was found not only in coronary arteries but also in carotid, aortic, femoral and popliteal arteries.
  • [1.2
    - Among different types of microbes, human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1), herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1), Chlamydia pneumonia, Spirochetes and Candida albicans are frequently detected in the brain of AD patients.
    - Amyloid-beta protein has demonstrated to exhibit antimicrobial properties upon encountering these pathogens.
