Although in vitro and animal studies support a role of elevated levels of atherosclerotic lipoproteins in the activation of inflammation, plasma cholesterol cannot predict inflammatory markers in humans. Moreover, the association between inflammatory markers and other traditional risk factors of diabetes and CHD is unclear. To increase our knowledge of in vivo regulation of… CONTINUE READING
