OBJECTIVE Diminished cholesterol efflux activity of apolipoprotein B (apoB)-depleted serum is associated with prevalent coronary artery disease, but its prognostic value for incident cardiovascular events is unclear. We investigated the relationship of cholesterol efflux activity with both prevalent coronary artery disease and incident development of major adverse cardiovascular events (death, myocardial infarction, or stroke). APPROACH AND RESULTS Cholesterol efflux activity from free… CONTINUE READING
