Association of Branched-Chain Amino Acids with Carotid Intima-Media Thickness and Coronary Artery Disease Risk Factors


BACKGROUND Recent studies have determined that branched-chain (BCAAs) and aromatic (AAAs) amino acids are strongly correlated with obesity and atherogenic dyslipidemia and are strong predictors of diabetes. However, it is not clear if these amino acids are capable of identifying subjects with coronary artery disease (CAD), particularly with subclinical… (More)
