Plasma level of oxidized low-density lipoprotein is an independent determinant of coronary macrovasomotor and microvasomotor responses induced by bradykinin.

OBJECTIVES We examined the relationship between coronary endothelium-dependent vasodilation in response to bradykinin (BK) and plasma levels of oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) in subjects with normal coronary arteries. BACKGROUND It is unclear whether the plasma oxLDL level is a determinant of coronary endothelial function. Bradykinin plays an… CONTINUE READING
