BACKGROUND In postmenopausal women (PMW), an adverse lipoprotein pattern and high risk of coronary artery disease has been described. Studies of the mechanisms promoting the higher atherogenic risk observed in healthy PMW are relevant. We evaluated the interactions among several circulating factors involved in the endothelial injury and inflammation in relation to LDL characteristics, beyond LDL cholesterol. METHODS Lipoprotein profile, including apolipoproteins A-I and B, small dense LDL… CONTINUE READING
