INTRODUCTION Important biochemical markers for the low-grade vascular inflammation and endothelial dysfunction that characterize the earliest events in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis are CRP and the adhesion molecules ICAM-1 and VCAM-1. This study aims to evaluate, in healthy Arab adolescent subjects aged 10-19 yr, the reference ranges for these markers and their associations with such determinants as age, gender, body mass and insulin sensitivity. METHODS There were 774 Kuwaiti subjects… CONTINUE READING
