BACKGROUND Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A(2) (Lp-PLA(2)) has emerged as a novel biomarker in cardiovascular diseases due to its ability to predict stroke in population-based studies. We aimed to investigate Lp-PLA(2) levels in transient ischemic attack (TIA) patients and to study their relationship with stroke recurrence. METHODS Lp-PLA(2) mass and activity were measured by means of the PLAC test with an automated Olympus analyzer and by a colorimetric activity method (diaDexus) in… CONTINUE READING
