OBJECTIVE High IgA-class (but not IgG-class) Anti-Heat-shock-protein 60 antibody level is a predictor of coronary risk in dyslipidemic middle-aged men. In this paper we studied the joint effects of high Anti-Hsp60-antibody level and the classical coronary risk factors. METHODS We used nested case-control design and logistic regression analyses. The cases consisted of 233 middle-aged men with myocardial infarction or coronary death during 8.5-year follow-up in Helsinki Heart Study, a coronary… CONTINUE READING
