Tissue plasminogen activator, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, and tissue plasminogen activator/plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 complex as risk factors for the development of a first stroke.
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND NAD PURPOSE: Abnormalities in the fibrinolytic system have been associated with an increased risk for stroke in a few studies. This study was designed to test whether plasmaExpand

Circulating levels of secretory- and lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 activities: relation to atherosclerotic plaques and future all-cause mortality.
AIMS Secretory- and lipoprotein-associated phospholipases A2 (sPLA2 and Lp-PLA2) are enzymes both suggested to be of importance for atherosclerosis. We investigated relationships between theExpand
