Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2: pathogenic mechanisms and clinical utility for predicting cardiovascular events.

Abstract

Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A(2 )(Lp-PLA(2)), a member of the phospholipase superfamily, circulates primarily bound to low-density lipoprotein and has been associated with cardiovascular disease risk in epidemiologic studies. However, it has not been established whether Lp-PLA(2) is a risk marker or a risk factor. Identification of individuals with… (More)
