OBJECTIVES This study prospectively examined whether the levels of high remnant-like lipoprotein particles (RLP) cholesterol have a significant risk and influence prognosis in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and type II diabetes mellitus (DM). BACKGROUND Several studies have shown that triglyceride-rich lipoproteins contribute to atherosclerotic complications in type II DM. However, it remains to be established which triglyceride-rich lipoproteins contribute to this risk… CONTINUE READING
