AIM To investigate the possible mechanisms and association of increased complexes of β(2)-glycoprotein I with lipoprotein(a) [β(2)-GPI-Lp(a)] levels with the presence and extent of coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS β(2)-GPI-Lp(a) levels were measured in 116 patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS), 72 patients with stable CAD and 100 control subjects. RESULTS Compared to the control, β(2)-GPI-Lp(a) levels (expressed after logarithmically transformation: ACS, 0.22±0.45 U/mL; stable… CONTINUE READING
