Several studies have reported that moderate hyperhomocysteinemia is related to an increased risk for atherosclerosis, but few data are available with regard to any other thiol compound having a potential vascular toxicity. Therefore, we measured both total cysteine and homocysteine plasma levels in patients with hyperlipidemia (242 males and 147 females, 41-65 years old). Homocysteine was higher in males than in females, 13.2+/-4.1 versus 11.1+/-3.4 micromol/l (P<0.0001). The mean cysteine… Expand
