In the present study, we examined (i) whether C3 (complement C3) was an independent marker of prevalent CHD (coronary heart disease), and (ii) which preferential associations existed between C3 and some cardiovascular risk factors when jointly analysed with CRP (C-reactive protein) and fibrinogen. In a cohort of 756 unselected adults, 39% of whom had the(More)

The aim of the CEntralized Pan-European survey on tHE Under-treatment of hypercholeSterolaemia (CEPHEUS) survey was to evaluate the current use and(More)
The role of serum gamma glutamyltransferase (GGT) activity as a cardiovascular risk marker was studied basically cross-sectionally. After appropriate exclusions, 754 men and 802 women were available for analysis who were followed up briefly yielding only 16% of overall cases of coronary heart disease (CHD). GGT activity was measured kinetically. In(More)
