OBJECTIVES The study investigated the relationship between biomarkers of oxidative stress and early atherosclerosis. BACKGROUND Oxidative stress is an important etiologic factor in the pathogenesis of vascular disease. We hypothesized that oxidative stress would predict early atherosclerosis in a relatively healthy population. METHODS One hundred fourteen healthy non-smokers, without known clinical atherosclerosis, had carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) measured using ultrasound… CONTINUE READING
