Are the high levels of cytomegalovirus antibodies a determinant in the development of coronary artery disease?



Are the high levels of cytomegalovirus antibodies a determinant in the development of coronary artery disease?



International Heart Journal 46(2): 205-209



In several epidemiological studies, it was suggested that a high titer of cytomegalovirus (CMV) antibody meant CMV reactivation. and that this condition was a determinant of coronary artery disease (CAD). The purpose of this study was to investigate both the prevalence of the CMV infections in our study population and whether high CMV seropositivity is a determinant of CAD.
