Statins reduce oxidized low-density lipoprotein levels, but do not alter soluble intercellular cell-adhesion molecule-1 and vascular cell-adhesion molecule-1 levels in subjects with hypercholesterolaemia.

Abstract

ICAM-1 (intercellular cell-adhesion molecule-1) and VCAM-1 (vascular cell-adhesion molecule-1) are cell-adhesion molecules that have an essential role in monocyte recruitment. In the present study we have investigated (i) whether statins reduce soluble levels of ICAM-1 (sICAM-1) and VCAM-1 (sVCAM-1), and the relationship between resistance of LDL (low… (More)
