BACKGROUND Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) represents a serious complication of heparin treatment. IgG antibodies binding platelet factor 4 (PF4) and heparin trigger the clinical manifestations of HIT. However, only a portion of the antibodies have the ability to activate platelets, and these can be identified by a platelet aggregation test(More)

OBJECTIVES Little is known about the role of adipokines in the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease in young patients. The aims of this study were to compare serum levels of adipokines and expression of adipokines in peripheral blood leukocytes in patients with premature coronary artery disease (CAD), metabolic syndrome and healthy individuals.

BACKGROUND Adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein (A-FABP) is a promising link between metabolic syndrome and atherosclerosis. Epicardial fat (EPI) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). OBJECTIVE The aim of this pilot study was to evaluate the correlation between EPI and A-FABP in asymptomatic patients with a family history of CVD.(More)
