Leptin has been reported to exert an atherosclerotic effect by regulating expression of angiogenic factors that have been implicated in the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease (CAD). The purpose of this study was to investigate whether lipid-lowering therapy (LLT) with statins could affect leptin levels and angiogenic factors in patients with CAD. This study included 76 patients with CAD and 15 subjects without CAD (non-CAD). CAD patients were randomized to 6 months of intensive LLT with… CONTINUE READING
