Although remnant-like lipoprotein particles (RLPs) are known to be atherogenic, the relationship between serum RLP-cholesterol (RLP-C) level and coronary artery disease (CAD) has not as yet been evaluated. This clinical study was aimed at investigating the pathological significance of serum RLP-C among several coronary risk factors with a clear focus on elderly patients. We took fasting venous blood samples to determine lipid profiles including RLP-C from 188 patients with angiographically… CONTINUE READING
