INTRODUCTION Cardioprotective effect of high density lipoprotein (HDL) is, in part, dependent on its related enzyme, paraoxonase 1 (PON1). Fatty acid composition of HDL could affect its size and structure. On the other hand, PON1 activity is directly related to the structure of HDL. This study was designed to investigate the association between serum PON1(More)
Myeloperoxidase (MPO) and paraoxonase-1 (PON1) are inflammatory and anti-inflammatory enzymes, respectively that have been involved in the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD). In this study we sought to evaluate the relations of MPO and PON1 with high density lipoprotein (HDL) mean size in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Collectively,(More)
The adipokines, leptin and adiponectin, have a prominent role in the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD). The inflammatory enzyme, myeloperoxidase (MPO) also has an important role in the pathogenesis of CAD. Association of the adipokines with MPO remains to be resolved in patients with CAD. In this case-control study, 100 patients with CAD and 100(More)
