Lipoprotein-associated Phospholipase A2: Effects of Low Density Lipoprotein Apheresis

Abstract

In addition to hypercholesterolemia, chronic arterial inflammation has been shown to be strongly associated with atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease (CVD) [1]. The accumulation and oxidation of LDL within the intima trigger inflammatory processes within the vessel wall. Certain markers of inflammation, such as C-reactive protein (CRP), soluble CD40… (More)
