OBJECTIVE Although circulating oxidized LDL (oxLDL) is elevated in persons with coronary heart disease (CHD), whether oxLDL is elevated in persons with high CHD risk before any events is unknown. Therefore, we studied the association between high, predicted CHD risk and oxLDL in the Health ABC cohort. METHODS AND RESULTS This cohort included 385 persons with CHD and 1183 persons at high risk; the latter were all persons with CHD risk equivalents: noncoronary forms of clinical atherosclerotic… CONTINUE READING
