Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 activity is associated with risk of coronary heart disease and ischemic stroke: the Rotterdam Study



Lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 activity is associated with risk of coronary heart disease and ischemic stroke: the Rotterdam Study



Circulation 111(5): 570-575



Background - Lipoprotein- associated phospholipase A2 ( Lp- PLA2) has been proposed as an inflammatory marker of cardiovascular disease. In the present study, we investigated whether Lp- PLA2 is an independent predictor of coronary heart disease and ischemic stroke. Methods and Results - The Rotterdam Study is a population- based follow- up study in 7983 subjects gtoreq 55 years of age.
