BACKGROUND Pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE) is a hereditary disorder of the connective tissue affecting the skin, retina, and cardiovascular system and characterized by progressive calcification of abnormal and fragmented elastic fibers in the extracellular matrix. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association of fetuin-A, a major systemic inhibitor of calcification, with PXE. METHODS Fetuin-A was measured by quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay in sera from 110 German… CONTINUE READING
