BACKGROUND Alterations in protein composition and oxidative damage of high density lipoprotein (HDL) have been proposed to impair the cardioprotective properties of HDL. We tested whether relative levels of proteins in HDL(2) could be used as biomarkers for coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS Twenty control and eighteen CAD subjects matched for HDL… CONTINUE READING
