Increased serum levels of β₂-GPI-Lp(a) complexes and their association with premature atherosclerosis in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Our recent study found the existence of complexes of β₂-glycoprotein I (β₂-GPI) with lipoprotein(a)[Lp(a)] in circulation and the complex concentrations were increased in sera of systemic lupus erythematosus patients. The concentration of β₂-GPI-Lp(a) and its relationship with premature atherosclerosis were evaluated in rheumatoid arthritis (RA… (More)
