Correlation of single nucleotide polymorphisms in the pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A gene with carotid plaques


BACKGROUND Pregnancy-associated plasma protein A (PAPP-A) is abundantly expressed in carotid plaques. This study investigated the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of PAPP-A and the presence of carotid plaques. METHODS A total of 408 patients with carotid plaques and 493 controls were included in the study. All subjects were… (More)
