Low plasma HDL-c, a vascular risk factor in high risk patients independent of LDL-c.

Abstract

BACKGROUND High concentrations of high density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-c) are associated with lower cardiovascular risk, but it is not known whether this is also the case in the presence of intensive low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) therapy. In this study, we determined the relationship between HDL-c and new non-fatal or fatal vascular… (More)
